centerforce D.F. problems

I installed a centerforce dual friction clutch in a 94 samurai about 18 months ago . resurfaced flywheel, new throwout bearing , and pilot bearing. I am getting some slippage at highway speeds . this clutch has not been abused only mild off-road and hill climbing and I dont remember ever smoking it or clutch smell. any help would greatly appreciated

Adjust your linkage a bit. You'll see the adjustment nuts on the passenger's side of the front of the tranny, 14mm wrench.

I adjusted the linkage so that the clutch should be in as far as possible . still slips, could the bolts inside the housing have worked loose? Or could the pressure plate get oil on it. There isnt oil dripping from it. any other suggestions?

Oil is unlikely unless you can see it dripping from the bottom of the bellhousing. Bolts wouldn't have woreed loose either or you'd have a whole other noisy disaster going on in there.

Fiddle with the adjustment a bit more. Its gotta be the adjustment that's allowing the slip.

You know what.... closely examine your clutch cable too. I had this going on last month with one of our Zuks and was having to adjust the thing every day. Fiannly I noticed that the cable housing had lost structural integrity in one spot and that was causing the problems. A new clutch cable is an easy 5 minute fix.

Re: centerforce D.F. problems

It is not oil because it is not slipping while first engaging the clutch at low RPM. You are having your problem at higher engine RPM and with a centerforce pressure plate the weights on the diaphragm spring increases the clamping force as the RPM increases. If you don't have a positive cam over feel when pressing on the clutch pedal your cable is bad.

The only sure way to tell is take the clutch out and check for oil soaked clutch linings and glazed flywheel and pressure plate. No oil, then put in cross hatch pattern on glazed flywheel and pressure plate and put it back togeather. If the flay wheel was over heated before or this time by slipping clutch good chance it was warped and should be machined flat. Pressure plate can also be warped.
