Self-ad­just­ing HCV clutch kits...

Motor Equipment News - - SERVICING -

Exedy says it is ex­cited to an­nounce the ad­di­tion of Illi­nois Auto Truck Co’s new Au­toSet Clutch to its ever-ex­pand­ing heavy com­mer­cial clutch range.

IATCO’s Au­toSet clutch improves on all pre­vi­ous ver­sions of self-ad­just­ing heavy duty clutches. It com­pen­sates for wear by auto-ad­just­ing to main­tain the clutch pedal freeplay. As an in­crease in wear oc­curs, the re­lease bear­ing moves closer to the clutch brake. The Au­toSet clutch in­cor­po­rates two shift­ing cams that sense the time to ad­just to main­tain proper clear­ance. The ex­ter­nal in­di­ca­tor tab pro­vides a visual in­spec­tion of the re­main­ing avail­able clutch life.

The Au­toSet Clutch sets it­self upon in­stal­la­tion and elim­i­nates nec­es­sary man­ual ad­just­ments through the life of the clutch. Exedy says it’s the per­fect so­lu­tion to de­crease clutch main­te­nance costs and max­imise ve­hi­cle op­er­a­tion time.

Dual cam springs

Two heavy duty springs con­nect the ad­just­ing cams to a strong and bal­anced ac­tu­a­tion.

Over-ad­just­ment pro­tec­tion

Two in­ter­nal straps con­nect the clutch cover to the ad­just­ing ring. The in­ter­nal straps hold the ad­just­ing ring and cams in place when shock to the truck oc­curs (dock col­li­sion or ter­rain im­pact).
