I have been working on my clutch recently and I pulled it apart to realise there is only 9 clutch plates. So now I am trying to work out if I have a 5t clutch or a 6t clutch (missing two plates).

Would someone be able to tell me the differences in the lengths of the clutch basket and the clutch centres?

By the way I have a Triumph 6t. So I am hoping I am just missing two plates.

Cheers, Greg

Have you got space to fit in one more friction plate and one steel,to make a 5-plate clutch (5 friction plates)?
If you only have the 4-plate centre and basket,the extra plates won't fit.They'll be losing engagement even before you release the clutch.

I don't have permission to post in the wanted section. So I don't suppose anyone has a late 50's pre-unit clutch centre/Cush drive they'd want to part with?

There should be 5 friction and 6 plain plates. If you need a new clutch center the part # is 99-9906. The 3T clutch center used 4 friction and 5 plain plates and looks very similar, but is shorter in length. Maybe that is what you have.

Hey dandruff. I have a 6t clutch centre but it's the original rigid centre I bought with the bike. After I had done some research I have found out that the guy who rebuilt the engine put a later pre-unit big journal crank in the bike. So now I'm trying to get a later model pre-unit Cush drive because I won't be able to use the original spring set up on the crank up front.

99-9906 is the part number for the pre unit cush drive center. I know people who run the earlier clutch center with no shock absorber on the crank. I have seen it done many times but depending on your riding style it could create problems for your trans.

this uses 43 teeth,

and the cush is on the engine pulley/
it uses the new o ring primary chain,
and a lithium grease on the front cush cam profiled spring loaded sprocket,
23 teeth is the biggest,
this clutch ihas a fully sealed bearing,
the steel sprocket is induction hardened,
