  • Pressure Plate Adjustment Screws

    Does anyone know of a source to get the pressure plate adjustment screws? I am looking at cleaning one up and adjusting it and it looks like the screws that were staked will not be usable once they are taken apart.

    Thanks, Jerry

      Mitch, I did call them and the person I spoke to said they did not have them stocked. They have a bin of used parts in the back that might have some in it, but they would need to be repaired to use.

      I was able to get the ones I have taken apart and hopefully reuse as I tried calling a few local shops and they did not have them either.

      Fort Wayne Clutch and pressure plate
      by greenhornet
      I question if anyone else ever received a rebuilt pressure plate from Fort Wayne for a Model A Ford and checked the clutch finger adjustment? I recently got one and was surprised to see how far off the measurement was.I really would not have even known that this measurement was off if it hadn't been written down in the Les Andrews book or the gauge that I obtained from Bratton's. Brattons gauge is...

      Pressure Plate Finger Adjustment
      by rheacox
      What would be considered an acceptable tolerance when adjusting pressure plate fingers? I had suspected something was off when reassembling everything after putting the new engine in and recently the clutch started to chatter. Turns out none of the adjusting nuts were staked and all of the fingers were around 3/16”-1/4” … way off the 11/16” that they should be. The kicker is the note that...

      Clutch Pressure Plate: New vs. Rebuilt Original...Which Do You Recommend?
      by Ayyy
      I'll be replacing the clutch in the next few weeks. My stock pressure plate options seem to be either a brand new one, or a rebuilt unit. Which type do you prefer?

      For reference, this is Bert's New Pressure Plate:

      My car has a lightened flywheel and a V8 clutch. It came that way from an engine build from the mid-80's. The pressure plate has some chunks of steel welded on it, apparently for balancing. Note in the picture the slug of steel welded in at about the 9 o'clock position, and another welded into the hole over the spring at about the 3:30 position. I haven't looked closely (yet) to see if there is any...

      Clutch, ... only for a little bit, then nothing
      by Bill CNC
      Hello All,

      I have a new pressure plate and clutch with about 200 miles on it. I noticed it was acting funny and started chattering so I pulled it out and saw a hot spot on the freshly resurfaced flywheel and one matching opposing spot on the pressure plate. I sanded both sides of the disc, and both the pressure plate and flywheel and put her all back together.

      Now, I have...

      Clutch Plate (one more time
      by carolinamudwalker
      First, my story. Installed an F-150 TX from OLD Victoria and life was good. A year later pulled the engine & sent it off for rebuild. Placed a note in the crate explaining what TX I had. Engine came back and would not go in. They sent the engine back with a model A clutch plate. Old Victoria gave me the part # to order a clutch plate from Ft Wayne Clutch. Engine was installed and Life...

I would change to a 10" clutch but fly wheel is only drilled...

      Clutch Adjustment
      by Amiller
      I'm beginning to believe I'm way beyond my skill level and feeling overwhelmed. I received lots of help from this forum and I'm hesitant to keep coming back for more help, but here I am. I pulled the rear end and removed the transmission and installed a new clutch and pressure plate. I adjusted the pressure plate fingers to 5/8's inch as recommended after the pressure plate was installed. Jump forward,...

      Crazy clutch disc/pressure plate install
      by Blown Gasket
      I put new bolts in the flywheel today, more on that later. Then went to put the new, (91A-7550) clutch disc with the old good pressure plate and torqued it up with everything aligned with a spline for the disc and the long side out toward the back. Then went to check the surface to TOB fingers expecting to find 5/8th to 11/16 of and inch. WHOA, almost an inch and a quarter. Take it apart and check...
