This air proportioning unit is operated by a single lift face cam which actuates two poppet valves, one controlling air supply to the power unit, the other controlling the exhaust air from the power unit. housing. Because the pawl meshes with one of the ratchet teeth and the ratchet wheel forms part of the camshaft, air pressure in the power cylinder will partially rotate both the ratchet and pawl housing and the camshaft clockwise. The cam (or cams) are in contact with one or more pump unit, and so each partial rotation contributes to a proportion of the jerk plunger and barrel pumping cycle of each unit (Fig.
The operating characteristics of the clutch mechanism are described as follows: Release bearing adjustment Slacken sleeve locknut with a `C' shaped spanner. Rotate the inner sleeve either way by means of the slotted adjusting nut until the recommended clearance is obtained between the bearing housing cover face and clutch brake. e. 5 mm for 355 mm 13 mm for 355 mm 13 mm for 294 mm Ð Ð Ð New engaged position (Fig. 2 kN (Fig. 14(a)). The axial thrust horizontal component pushing on the pressure plate does not vary in direct proportion with the spring load exerted between its ends, but is a function of the angle through which the mounted springs operate relative to the splined input shaft.
Thus in a twin plate clutch, half the energy generated whilst slipping must be absorbed by the intermediate plate and only a quarter each by the flywheel and pressure plate. This is usually borne out by the appearance of the intermediate plate and its corresponding lining faces showing evidence of high temperatures and increased wear compared to the linings facing the flywheel and pressure plate. Nevertheless, multiplate clutches do have a life expectancy which is more or less related to the number of pairs of friction faces for a given diameter of clutch.
