Diesel clutch signs and problem indicators
There are some to look out for as they indicate a fault in the clutch. It is very important to take note of these signs.
Hydraulic line leakage:
When engaging your clutch proves difficult or is poor, it is an indication that there is a hydraulic line leak.
Incorrect adjustment of linkage:
If you notice that a deficient amount of force was transferred to the wheel, it just means that an incorrect amount of power was transmitted to the clutch.
Wear of clutch cable:
If a clutch cable wears out, it reduces the proper amount of tension required for it to function efficiently.
Stripped clutch material:
A clutch will not engage if its elements are completely stripped.
