Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Clutch drum set screw
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Mike Zahorik on Saturday, May 28, 2016 - 05:06 pm:

When I disassembled my 1926 engine/transmission, I found the clutch drum set screw loose. It's cotter pin was not keeping the set screw from turning. The set screw was about a 1/2 turn or so loose. Now, I'm reassembling the engine and transmission and have gotten to the point where this cotter pin is to be installed. I've looked at some pictures in the FORD green book as to how the cotter should be installed, but I don't see it. How should this cotter pin be installed to prevent the set screw from moving, thanks Mike

Look at around 14:50 in this video:

Say that is quite a video. I think I may have to take a few days off from working on the engine and watch these. Looks good! Thanks Mike

Mark, shouldn't the cotter pin be put in and bent the other way? I don't see how that would keep the bolt from loosening up.

Not my video, ask Mike Bender. :-)

You're right, it does look that way to me in the video - probably an oversight made in the heat of video production. The idea though, is as Mike says, put the key in and tap it down so that it prevents the locking bolt from loosening.

Yes the cotter pin should go the other directions. My bad. Need to fix that.

Use the longest cotter pin possible.

I used a 1/8x1 inch cotter pin. Works good, Mike

I use the longest split pin I have and bend just one leg at right angles. As insurance, use some loktite on the set screw.
