1925 Hudson clutch
A week ago I posted a discussion as I need some information to enable me to assemble a 1925 multi-plate wet clutch fitted to a 1925 Hudson. Below is a copy of this post:
"I am assembling a 1925 Hudson clutch which came to me disassembled. It is a wet clutch with 6 cork lined plates . There are 2 sets of anti-rattle springs. 10 armed springs and 10 flat springs with 2 coils. Given there are six plates there are 5 spaces between these plates. There are 4 posts attached to the cover plate so it would seem that 5 of these springs are fitted over each of these posts. I can see slight wear marks on some of the plates that have been made by the eared springs. However I am not totally confident how these springs should be fitted. I have a 1918 service manual that has a lined drawing of a cross section through a similar clutch, but from this drawing it is not possible to tell how they are fitted. Is there anyone who could confirm how these springs should be fitted."
As yet I still have not received a reply and I am anxious to finish this project. All of my leads here in Western Australia and in America (such as Doug Wildrick from Wildrick Restoration and Aaron Cooper from the Central Iowa Chapter of the HET Club) have also failed to provide the information I need. If no one on this forum has the information I require maybe some one may be able to suggest somewhere else, there in America, I can try to obtain it.
