DISASSEMBLY PROCEDURE
Before working on the Electro-Magnetic Clutch,
the Clutch must first be removed from the
CAUTION! Vacuum Pump.

To Remove the Clutch from the Vacuum Pump: -

1. Referring to the diagram below, remove Circlip (8) and pulley (7) from the clutch
making sure to retain the key.

2. Remove bolt (10) and Washer (9) and replace with Clutch removal tool as out-
lined in drawing below (Figure 1)

3. Before removing Clutch, loosen Clutch Bracket Bolts (4) to ensure Clutch doesnt
fowl on the Bracket as its being removed.

4. After Clutch has been removed ensure that Vacuum Pump Key (2) is retained.

Before disassembling the Electromagnetic


Clutch it must be determined whether it is
INFORMATION ! viable or cost effective to service the Clutch or
not. Following is a Check List that should help
determine whether a Clutch should be serviced
or replaced.

CLUTCH CHECK LIST


1. Using an ohmmeter set on RX10 check the resistance of the Coil Carrier.
For a 12 Volt Coil the resistance should be between 0.6 0.8 W.
For a 24 Volt Coil the resistance should be between 1.3 1.5 W.
If the resistance of the Coil is not sufficient the Coil Carrier will need to
be replaced.
2. Check the Clutch Housings for signs of wear, especially around the keyways
and bearing areas. If either Housing shows sign of excessive wear it would be
better to replace the whole Clutch assembly.
3. With a 0.3mm Feeler Gauge check the tolerance between the Rotor and the
Transmission Flange. If the tolerance is greater than 0.3mm check the Trans-
mission Flange for signs of wear, if the tolerance is less then 0.3mm it maybe
because of worn or insufficient Shims. Both the Shims and Transmission Flange
can be replaced. However if the wear is on the face of the Rotor, the whole
Clutch assembly should be replaced.
4. Clutch Bearings should also be checked. These Bearings are sealed Bearings
and come complete with Shims as part of the Shim Kit. Both the Shims and
Bearings are generally replaced when servicing a Clutch.
5. The Pulley and Keys should also be checked for signs of wear.
If wear is excessive, then these items should be replaced.

When assembling and disassembling an


Electromagnetic Clutch it is important that any
force applied to the Clutch is only applied to the
ATTENTION ! faces outlined in Figure 2 below.

This is achieved by using Shaft Clamps and Press


Tools outlined in the following procedures.

Figure 2

Page 5 of Clutch Procedure

STEP #1
Fix Shaft Clamp as shown in Figure 3 to the Coil Car- Press Tool
rier making sure that the cut out section of the clamp is
positioned over the coil wires, so not to damage them.
Remove inner circlip and any shims, making note of
number and size of shims to take out the guesswork
when re-assembling. Using the press tool shown in
Figure 3 press off the Coil Carrier.

Figure 3

Press Tool
STEP #2
Remove outer circlip, turn the Coil Carrier over and with
the press tool shown in Figure 4 press out the bearing.

Check Bearing and bearing housing area for signs of


wear.
If bearing area is worn, the Coil Carrier will need to be
replaced.

Figure 4

STEP #3
Fix Shaft Clamp as shown in Figure 5 to the Mounting
Press Tool
Flange. Remove inner circlip and any shims, making
note of number and size of shims to take out the guess-
work when re-assembling.

Using the press tool shown, press off the Mounting


Flange.

Figure 5

STEP #4
Remove shims, making note of number and size of
shims to take out the guesswork when re-assembling.
Check Rotor for signs of wear especially around the
face that opposes the Transmission Flange.

If the Rotor or Rotor Drive Face shows signs of exces-


sive wear, the whole Clutch assembly should be re-
placed.
Figure 6

Press Tool
STEP #5
Remove outer circlip, turn the Mounting Flange over
and with the press tool shown in Figure 7 press out the
bearings.
Check for any shims between bearings, note number
and size of shims to take out the guesswork when re-
assembling.

Check Transmission Flange for signs of wear, if worn


the Transmission Flange should be replaced. How-
ever ,if the Mounting Flange shows signs of excessive
wear the whole Clutch assembly should be replaced.
Figure 7

After the Electromagnetic Clutch has been


disassembled, assess what parts need to be
INFORMATION ! replaced, clean all components and then
re-assemble the Clutch following the steps
outlined in the following assembly procedure.

ASSEMBLY PROCEDURE
STEP #1
Press the bearing into the Coil Carrier as shown in
Figure 8. Insert outer circlip to prevent the bearing from
moving.

If this is a rebuild, the old bearing should be replaced.

Figure 8

STEP #2
Using the same press tool as the one used to press
the bearing into the Coil Carrier, press the Coil Carrier
onto the Rotor and then insert inner circlip as shown
here in Figure 9. The circlip should be hard up against
the bearing. If the circlip is not hard up against the
bearing, shims may need to be added between the
bearing and the circlip.

Note the top of the Rotor should protrude no more then


0.5mm past the Coil Carrier.

Figure 9

STEP #3
If the Transmission Flange is to be replaced, using
Loctite and the cap screws provided, fix the new
Transmission Flange to the Mount Flange as shown in
Figure 10.

Note the Transmission Flange will only need to be


replaced if it is worn or damaged, it is not generally
replaced when servicing a Clutch.

Figure 10

STEP #4
As shown in Figure 11,Individually press both bear-
ings into the Mounting Flange, making sure to replace
the shims between the bearings, then insert the outer
circlip. The circlip should be hard up against the bear-
ing.
If the circlip is not hard up against the bearing, extra
shims may need to be added between the bearing and
the circlip.

If this is a rebuild, the old bearings and shims should be


replaced. Figure 11

STEP #5
Replace the shims on the Rotor, then with the same
press tool used to press the bearings into the Mounting
Flange, press the Mounting Flange onto the Rotor.
Shown in Figure 12.
With a 0.3mm Feeler Gauge check the tolerance be-
tween the Transmission Flange and the Rotor. If the tol-
erance is greater then 0.3mm remove some of the Ro-
tor Shims. If the tolerance is smaller then 0.3mm more
Rotor Shims will need to be added.
Figure 12

STEP #6
When the 0.3mm tolerance between the Transmis-
sion Flange and the Rotor has been achieved, insert
the inner circlip. Figure 13. The circlip should be hard
up against the bearing. If the circlip is not hard up
against the bearing, shims may need to be added be-
tween the bearing and the circlip.
