Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1919 edition. Excerpt: ... lock wire through the holes in the heads of the cap screws and then turn up one-half turn on each cap screw, so that equal pressure is maintained on all three, and there will be no binding or unequal tension on one of the cap screws, possibly causing it to break. These are adjusted accurately at the factory, so that if they are all turned up an equal distance in making the adjustment the risk of binding is very remote. Give each one a half turn and then replace the lock wire through the holes in the heads of the cap screws and tighten the wire firmly so that there will be no danger of any of the cap screws backing off and causing the disks to bind. The clutch should not drag when the adjustment is made. You can test for drag by locking the clutch pedal in the release position, and with the petcocks of the engine open you should be able to readily turn over the engine by means of the starting crank without the belt pulley rotating If the belt pulley rotates it indicates that the clutch is dragging. On the other hand, if the clutch starts to slip the engine will run ahead of its work. That is, you can readily tell by ear that the engine is running faster than it should for the motion of the tractor, or possibly the tractor, in a bad case of slipping, would not move ahead at all. In that case you may have to turn up each of the cap screws four to six one-half turns. Be careful to turn them all up the same amount and alternating, giving each a half turn in rotation, so that one cap screw is not carrying the full load of the spring at any time. An adjustment of this kind, made correctly, will prevent further slipping of the clutch for several months at least. CLUTCH SHAFT PILOT BEARING.
