WARNING: Do Not Run Clutch With Rim Removed.
Maintenance – Type F & G
Lining’s, blocks and springs can be inspected by removing the cover plate.
Bearing is a self lubricating bronze bearing and needs no lubrication except where frequent idling is required.
Do not over oil, a few drops will be sufficient since oil will contaminate linings and reduces capacity of clutch causing slippage.
Install new linings if this occurs.
