My 1950 Pan needed a seasonal dumping of the oil to stop the sticking and slipping. Pull plates, wash in gas, resurface on patio block, wipe out clutch basket and reassemble...yes I've replaced the main seal and the ones that go in the clutch hub nut. I used to keep it up on the rear stand when parking for extended periods...that helped. I think its engine oil filling the primary anyway. The process is usually good for several months. Hhhhmmm...maybe that strategically drilled hole just below the derby cover... nah...


  1. It's a flat concrete block that you make patio's out of. I've also used Cinder Block. I rub the clutch plates in a circular motion flat on the block to rough them up and resurface them flat.
