Re: Clutch centering pin dimensions

With the drawing Axle sent you just use the release rod for the center element.

Socket? 9mm hole to route the rod thru.
I took apart a spring loaded center punch from harbour freight, wrapped some tape around the handle, slipped on the plastic insert from the new clutches spline, and will drill out the inside of the punch for the rod.

BTW, this was not my idea, but -- like almost everything I've ever done to the LT -- came from this forum...

Re: Clutch centering pin dimensions

I used to fiddle with alignment tools but really when you look dead on, it is pretty obvious if you have it right.

Re: Clutch centering pin dimensions

Just make sure the clutch is continuously pulled in when doing the final pull up of the engine to the transmission to minimize forces on the alignment system

Re: Clutch centering pin dimensions

Sorry Niel but that is hard to do when the slave is on the back end of the transmission and that sets the push point to release the clutch. I have always had the transmission just slide right in to place with the eye-ball alignment.
