Howo truck clutch repair

As is known to all, clutches can be divided into push and pull. For pull clutch, simple structure, higher efficiency, longer service life. Therefore, the clutch type is a pull clutch for Howacar cars, especially for high-power vehicles, 371 horsepower Howacar.

First, let’s see how it works. Let’s look at the meshing state:

When the pressure plate and flywheel (Howell truck parts) are bolted to the engine, the clutch is engaged. At this point, the spring plate on the clutch cover presses the press plate and the flywheel tightly against the clutch plate between them. When the clutch cover assembly and the flywheel are rotating, the driven disc assembly and the drive shaft are driven by the friction torque on the friction plate on the driven disc assembly.

Then look at the separated state:

When the gear to engage or shift gears, first step down the clutch pedal, clutch oil through the main clutch pump and clutch oil cylinder, the fork will be pushed to the left, the use of lever principle to shift the fork to the right. (Hauvoka Parts Catalogue PDF)

Truck Clutch

From the above explanation, it may not be clear how the flywheel, clutch disc, pressure plate, and separation bearing are assembled or moved.

Separate bearing and diaphragm spring interlock. When the booster pushes the separation fork to the left (the direction shown by the arrow in the lower right corner), the lever moves the separation bearing to the right through the lever, and the separation bearing drives the pressure plate diaphragm spring to rotate to move the pressure plate counterclockwise with the support ring as the center, so that the pressure plate, clutch plate and flywheel are separated.

After understanding how they work, let’s take a look at the failures that are often encountered in the clutch system. Clutch slip and vehicle jitter are two common fault phenomena in clutch system. Through the following two tables, you can list the failure phenomenon, possible causes and solutions, so that we can prevent in advance, improve the operation habits or problems.

Clutch pressure plate

Clutch slip

Phenomena: Clutch disc wear or ablation.

Possible cause: excessive wear of clutch plates due to frequent use of half coupling operation.

Maintenance method: pay attention to the use habit under the standard load condition.

Fault phenomenon: the surface of the clutch is burnt or the surface of the pressure plate is blue.

Possible cause: in severe overspeed and heavy load cases, the clutch is frequently used or often in a semi-coupled state.

Maintenance method: pay attention to the use habit under the standard load condition.

Fault phenomenon: clutch pedal free travel is too small.

Possible cause: Diaphragm spring separates the preexcited force on the spring.

Inspection method: adjust the pedal free distance, separate the clearance between the bearing and the diaphragm. Fault phenomenon: the clutch assembly friction contact surface there is oil. Possible cause: oil seal failure of transmission input shaft, oil leakage. Inspection method: replace the transmission oil seal. Startup jitter

Possible cause: uneven surface of pressure plate or flywheel.

Inspection method: Check and replace the damaged parts.

Possible reasons: pressure plate separation refers to uneven force, bias and softness.

Inspection method: check the press plate or separation bearing, if there is any damage, replace. 

Possible cause: clutch pedal is not fully back in position.

Inspection method: check the clutch pedal mechanism to see if there is any fault.

Possible cause: Diaphragm rupture.

Inspection method: replace the pressure plate.

Possible cause: Second gear start, operation is not normal. Maintenance method: pay attention to the operation habit.
