Type BD clutches have been designed to mount onto any engine with flywheel and bellhousing conforming to SAE dimensions. These clutches consist of an over Centre clutch assembly mounted onto a tapered shaft carried on two bearings. The pilot bearing is housed in the engine flywheel and the outer bearing serves to support the output shaft and is capable of withstanding radial loads as detailed within this catalogue.
For exceptionally high radial loads models BD290/150R, BD2200R and BD3300R are available with special heavy duty bearings. Power is transmitted by clutch plates located within a driving ring bolted to the engine flywheel. The clutch mechanism is equipped with a unique automatic clutch adjustment device capable of compensating for reasonable clutch plate wear.
Type BDS units provide a unique range of free-standing clutches intended for applications where engine mounting is not possible. BDS clutches consist of a BD type clutch but with a drive plate supported on the input shaft carried on two bearings in the independent bellhousing. The drive plate carries the driving ring and main shaft pilot bearing.
BDP and BDSP clutch units are constructed as per the standard type BD and BDS clutches, but offer a selection of hydraulic pump adaptors in place of output shaft.
