The bush is set so that the greatest thickness of rubber is in compression in the laden condition. A slot is incorporated in the rubber on either side where the rubber is at its minimum in such a position as to avoid stressing any part of it in tension. 5 : 1. This type of bush provides a large amount of vertical deflection with very little fore and aft movement which makes it suitable for rear gearbox mounts using three point power unit suspension and leaf spring eye shackle pin bushes. distortion within the rubber.

1) as the wear rate is also greatly influenced by the peak surface rubbing temperature and the intermediate plate of a twin plate clutch operates at a higher working temperature than either the flywheel or pressure plate which can be more effectively cooled. Thus in a twin plate clutch, half the energy generated whilst slipping must be absorbed by the intermediate plate and only a quarter each by the flywheel and pressure plate. This is usually borne out by the appearance of the intermediate plate and its corresponding lining faces showing evidence of high temperatures and increased wear compared to the linings facing the flywheel and pressure plate.

2 Driven plate transmitted torque capacity The torque capacity of a friction clutch can be raised by increasing the coefficient of friction of the rubbing materials, the diameter and/or the spring thrust sandwiching the driven plate. 35. There are materials which have higher coefficient of friction values, but these tend to be unstable and to snatch during take-up. Increasing the diameter of the driven plate unfortunately raises its inertia, its tendency to continue spinning when the driven plate is freed while the clutch is in the disengaged position, and there is also a limit to the clamping pressure to which the friction lining material may be subjected if it is to maintain its friction properties over a long period of time.
