General Information

The AUTO Mfg. Inc. clutch and PTO is a spring-loaded automotive style clutch assembly capable of providing full engine horsepower from the PTO output shaft. Designed for use on both gasoline and diesel engines, the main components for each engine are the same.

Two models of the clutch and PTO are available:

HD1300

The HD1300 provides a 1 ¾” output shaft for use on gasoline and diesel engines. This assembly incorporates 3 heavy-duty ball bearings (1 at the front and 2 at the rear of the housing), 1 3/¬8” splined shaft, with hardened spline and bearing journals.

The 13” clutch disc with 1 3/¬8” splined hub and ceramic metallic pads is designed for medium to heavy-duty industrial applications up to 120hp.

The industrial style pressure plate incorporates 12 springs providing a clamping force of 1860 lbs.

HD1300XT

The HD1300XT provides a 2 ¼” output shaft with hardened spline and journals for use on diesel engines up to 150hp. The assembly utilizes 2 heavy-duty roller bearings 1 each at the front and rear of the PTO housing.

The 13” clutch disc with 1 ½” splined hub and ceramic metallic pads is designed for heavy-duty industrial applications up to 150 hp.

The Industrial style pressure plate incorporates 16 springs providing a clamping force of 2425 lbs.

The PTO output shaft in both models is centered into a pilot bearing located in the engine flywheel.

The PTO and clutch assemblies are designed for use on either in-line or belt driven applications. A drive shaft utilizing universal joints must be used with in-line installations to compensate for engine and driven unit mal-alignment.

Clutch Operation

WARNING:

ROTATING SHAFTS, PULLEYS, AND MOVING BELTS CAN CAUSE SEVERE INJURY OR CAN BE FATAL.

THE ENGINE AND DRIVEN UNIT MUST BE COMPLETELY STOPPED BEFORE ANY ADJUSTMENTS OR WORK IS ATTEMPTED TO THE ENGINE, DRIVEN UNIT, OR THE PTO CLUTCH ITSELF.

Operation of the AUTO Clutch is very simple.

FIG. 1

The AUTO clutch is disengaged with the handle in the ‘down’ or ‘horizontal’ position. It is recommended that the engine be started with the clutch disengaged.

If the engine is being started for the first time during the workday, allow the engine to WARM UP for a few minutes before engaging the clutch.

FIG. 2

For mechanical throttle actuated engines, increase the engine rpm to approximately 1000 to 1200 rpm. Engage the clutch by moving the clutch handle to the ‘up’ or ‘vertical’ position slowly enough to prevent stalling the engine

For electronic throttle controlled engines, engage the clutch with the throttle control in the slow idle position. Use caution when engaging the clutch, not to allow excessive slippage of the disc prior to full engagement.

CAUTION:

Excessive slippage during engagement will cause premature failure of the clutch disc. This type of failure is not covered under the clutch warranty.

When the driven equipment is running at the same rpm as the engine allow the clutch to engage fully.

With the clutch handle in the vertical position and the clutch fully engaged, you can now move the engine throttle to the preferred engine operating position. The PTO output shaft is now rotating at engine rpm.

CAUTION:

Engaging the clutch at maximum engine RPM will cause the disc and pressure plate to overheat and result in premature failure of the disc pads (disintegration) and pressure plate. This type of failure is not covered under the clutch warranty.

Clutch Adjustment

A properly adjusted clutch will provide many hours of service life. Therefore it is important that the adjustment of the clutch linkage be checked after the first 15 hours of operation and every 250 hours thereafter.

An improperly adjusted clutch can result in premature wear to the clutch disc, pressure plate, throw-out bearing, and engine flywheel.

1. With the clutch handle in the engaged position, adjust the nut against the ‘rocker ball’ until a 1/8” gap is obtained between the nut and the ‘rocker ball’.

2. Use the 1/8” gauge tool (41500103) to slip between the nut and the rocker ball with a slight amount of pressure.

3. Tighten the lock nut to the adjusting nut.

4. Place the handle in the disengaged position (horizontal). Check to make sure that the PTO output shaft turns freely.

Clutch Adjustment (HD1300xt)

1. With the clutch handle in the engaged position, adjust the nut against the ‘rocker ball’ until a 1/8” gap is obtained between the nut and the ‘rocker ball’

2. Use the 1/8” gauge tool (41500103) to slip between the nut and the rocker ball with a slight amount of pressure.

3. Tighten the lock nut to the adjusting nut.

4. Place the handle in the disengaged position (horizontal). Check to make sure that the PTO output shaft turns freely.

Lubrication

The PTO assembly on both the HD 1300 and HD1300XT are equipped with sealed for life bearings. No greasing of the PTO assembly is required.

The clutch lever crossover shaft should be lubricated with a high temperature lithium base #2 lubricant at 250-hour intervals.

The bore of the throw-out bearing must be lubricated with a moly-based grease if disassembled for service reasons.
