Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Clutch lugs in brake drum. Worst I have seen!

We have all seen notches worn in the brake drum clutch lugs from the clutch discs. Some of them I use a file to even up and reuse the drum, but this is extreme. Worn through into the output plate bolt holes. This transmission also had cracked low and reverse drums. Still working, engine was pulled for a rod knock. Amazing how these engines could survive under such conditions. A tribute to the genius of the men who designed the model T to be maintained under less than optimum conditions.

Wow Erik, were the rest of the lugs that bad also? Hard to image any type of smooth clutch operation with that.

Wow, that wear went most of the way thru the bolt!! I bet it came of a TT.

Those lugs made the clutch inoperable for a long time!

All lugs look the same.

From the looks of the excess wear on the brake drum I have to wonder what the gear thats on the drum looks like!
That kind of wear seems to show that T was jerked around a lot.
