Fitting tips and tricks from Diesel Technic

Diesel Technic, represented in Ireland by Truck & Bus Parts, is a leading supplier of quality CV parts. Here the company offers tips and advice on fitting a clutch cylinder with sensor – part no. 3.41108.When the clutch pedal is operated, the movement of the piston causes pressure to build up in the clutch master cylinder, which is passed through the hydraulic line to the slave cylinder. From here, the pressure is relayed to the release mechanism, which opens the clutch and thus breaks the flow of power from the engine to the transmission.

Position sensors on the master cylinder ensure greater efficiency and precision in power transmission, thus ensuring greater safety, comfort and emission control.

Tips and Tricks

Before assembly, replace the seals of the connecting cables. If equipment is contaminated or overdue for service, it must be replaced. Attention: Use only approved equipment. Check pedal system for damage and function.

Also check the function of the electrical activation and air supply. Scratches and kinks on air ducts or electrical contacts can cause malfunction. The system must then be vented and set up as required for the specific vehicle.
