1500 Clutch Issues


Recommended Posts

Hi All,
I have a trials special which has a Triumph 1500 clutch with the raised ring on the flywheel
I got the car in bits and have rebuilt it with a new clutch cover [it uses a ford 100e friction plate]
The pedal pressure is massive and the clutch releases with an audible 'pop' , its like a switch !!
I don't know what has been modified so I'm batting in the dark really
I'm looking for some help in unraveling this problem

Does anyone know what the depth of the stepped ring should be on a std 1500 flywheel ?
What is the thickness of a std 1500 friction plate ?

I have a some 1500 parts here admittedly from a 1500fwd saloon but i understand them to be the same. the stepped ring is 6.35mm thick and the friction plate(new,Spitfire) is 8.5mm

It sounds like your clutch cover spring is going over center.

Hope that helps
