Function of the Clutch
Function of transmitting the torque from the engine to the drivetrain.
Smoothly deliver the power from the engine to enable smooth vehicle movement.
Perform quietly and to reduce drive-related vibration.
Protect the drivetrain when given the inappropriate use. Given the situation, the EXEDY clutch will fail when giventhe inappropriate use inturn to protect the rest of the drivetrain, similar to the function of an electric fuse.
When the clutch pedal is pressed, a cable or hydraulic piston pushes on the release fork, which presses the throw-out bearing against the middle of the diaphragm spring. With the spring pushed, the clutch disc is then disconnected from the rotating flywheel that is attached to the engine. When the pedal is released, the disc will engage contact with the flywheel and transmit the torque from the engine to the rest of the drivetrain.
Structure of the Clutch
Engine torque can be cut off and transmitted by engaging or disengaging from the flywheel.
The clutch cover supports the clutch rotating system and transmits engine torque by pushing the clutch disc.
