Friction and Steel Plate Warp Inspection
Place each friction plate or steel plate on a surface plate,
and measure the gap between the surface plate [A] and
each friction plate or steel plate [B] with a thickness gauge
[C]. The gap is the amount of friction or steel plate warp.
If any plate is warped over the service limit, replace it with
a new one.
Friction and Steel Plates Warp
0.15 mm (0.006 in.) or less
0.3 mm (0.012 in.)
Spring Free Length Measurement
Since the spring [A] becomes shorter as it weakens,
check its free length to determine its condition.
If any of the springs is shorter than the service limit, it must

Clutch Housing Finger Inspection
Visually inspect the fingers [A] of the clutch housing where
the tangs [B] of the friction plate hit them.
If they are worn or if there are groove cut where the tangs
hit, replace the housing. Also replace the friction plates if
their tangs are damaged.
Clutch Hub Spline Inspection
Visually inspect where the teeth on the steel plates wear
against splines [A] of the clutch hub.
If there are notches worn into the splines, replace the
clutch hub. Also, replace the clutch plates if their tooth
