Example text

Thus in a twin plate clutch, half the energy generated whilst slipping must be absorbed by the intermediate plate and only a quarter each by the flywheel and pressure plate. This is usually borne out by the appearance of the intermediate plate and its corresponding lining faces showing evidence of high temperatures and increased wear compared to the linings facing the flywheel and pressure plate. Nevertheless, multiplate clutches do have a life expectancy which is more or less related to the number of pairs of friction faces for a given diameter of clutch.

These mountings are used extensively for body to subframe and cab to chassis mounting points. Metacone sleeve mountings (Fig. 18(f and g)) These mounts are formed from male and female conical sleeves, the inner male member being centrally positioned by rubber occupying the space between both surfaces (Fig. 18(f)). During vertical vibrational deflection, the rubber between the sleeves is subjected to a combined shear and compression which progressively increases the stiffness of the rubber as it moves towards full distortion.

28(b)). The bottom ends of the inner legs may support either twin wheels, which enable the trailer to be manoeuvred, or simply flat feet. The latter are able to spread the load and so permit greater load capacity. To extend or retract the inner legs, a winding handle is attached to either the low or high speed shaft protruding from the side of the gearbox. The upper high speed shaft supports a bevel pinion which meshes with a vertically mounted bevel wheel forming part of the jackscrew. Rotating the upper shaft imparts motion directly to the jackscrew through the bevel gears.
