COMMON TYPES AND PARTS OF A DIESEL TRUCK CLUTCH
At NMC Truck Centers, we can handle maintenance, repairs and replacements for all your clutch parts and components. The clutch, which is a mechanical device found in manual vehicles, allows the driver to transfer power from the engine to the wheels and shift gears. There are various types of clutches found in diesel trucks, including:
- Stock replacement
- Single disc
- Dual disc
- Triple disc
Regardless of the type of clutch, you will typically find these main parts in clutches:
- Flywheel: The flywheel is found mounted on the crankshaft and has either a friction surface or friction disc.
- Cover plate: The cover plate is attached to the flywheel.
- Pressure plate: The pressure plate is found on the splined hub. When it is engaged, it will clamp the disc assembly onto the flywheel to transfer the engine power to the transmission. When it is disengaged, there will be a gap for the disc to disengage from the flywheel, and the driver will be able to shift gears.
- Driven plate: Found between the flywheel and the pressure plate, the driven plate runs on a splined shaft.
- Release bearing: The release bearing is operated by a fork and has a friction material on each side.
You may also find friction discs and a spring level in your truck’s clutch.
