Pull Type Clutch

Can someone please teach me about Pull Type clutches??

There's really not a lot of information on them (that I can find anyways).. I get that it pulls the diaphragm fingers away from the flywheel and the pivot in the cover allows the pressure ring to come away from the friction plate. I'm a visual person and I have a hard time wrapping my head around this.

So would every other factor compare to a push type clutch? For example, If the disc starts getting thin would the pedal still grab at the top?

With a push clutch the pressure plate surface moves closer to the flywheel which takes up the space originally taken by the disc and makes the pedal grab at the top.
So if the pull type clutch isn't slipping at all but grabs right at the top of the pedal does that mean the clutch needs to replaced soon?? Or is it completely different ?



help me.

I think to answer your question though, everything else is comparable to a push type. The only difference is that it changes the overall size of the clutch and it will change the amount of travel required before the clutch engages.

That's all the information I found.

Thank you!

Basically this clutch grabs right at the top of the pedal but it doesn't slip, once it grabs it pulls hard.. I assume it's the same and its almost at the end of its life it's nice to find out a little more information.
