Owing to its configuration, the pull type clutch allows a larger pressure plate and diaphragm spring to be used for a given diameter of clutch. Advantages of this design over a similar push type clutch include lower pedal loads, higher torque capacity, improved take-up and increased durability. This clutch layout allows the ratio of the diaphragm finger release travel to pressure plate movement to be reduced. It is therefore possible to maintain the same pressure plate movement as that offered by a conventional push type clutch, and yet increase the ratio between clamp load and pedal load from 4:1 to 5:1.
Button type driven plates expose more than 50% of the flywheel and pressure plate surfaces to the atmosphere during clutch engagement, so that heat transfer to the surrounding by convection may be improved by as much as 100%. Button type friction pads do not suffer from warpage as do full ring metallic or organic linings and therefore are less prone to distort and cause clutch drag. Button type friction pads permit the dust worn from the friction surfaces to be thrown clear of the clutch areas, thus preventing the possibility of any trapped work-hardened particles from scoring the friction faces.

It consists of a worm and wheel drive which operates an air proportioning control unit. This air proportioning unit is operated by a single lift face cam which actuates two poppet valves, one controlling air supply to the power unit, the other controlling the exhaust air from the power unit. housing.
