Clutch

The clutch is made up of a drum or shell which is integral with the rear primary drive chain sprocket and which has inside a series of alternately positioned lined and unlined discs. The lined discs are doweled to the clutch hub which is keyed to the transmission shaft while the steel (unlined) discs are keyed to the clutch shell. When the clutch pressure plate is seated, a group of springs press the steel and lined discs together making a non-slipping connection between the engine and transmission.
