I have a problem with burning out clutches with no possible reason as to
where the problem may be.
I drive with care cus they are not cheap, and i am on my 3rd one now in 9
months. The Truck is used in the local area to me, Dorset, in the UK
without too many hills or steep climbs. I can see this group has a lot of
posts concerning cars, i wonder if there are any posters with similar
experiences to mine.
Does your model have a clutch brake fitted? Fully depressing the clutch
activates the clutch brake and will quickly destroy a clutch if used at
road speed. The clutch brake should only be used to engage the crawler
gear when stationary. Not all models have a clutch brake fitted.
Other causes can be a warped flywheel with only partial clutch contact.
Your driving style maybe at fault, overuse of the clutch using the engine
to brake the vehicle versus using the service brakes.
Not using the clutch (except 1st/reverse) will also cause premature failure.
