Or if the bushing that holds the other end of the input shaft in the flywheel was worn allowing the input shaft to wobble a little.

Something to check then,, next time it's apart, thanks , Al

:ditto: My splines were very worn but still usable until the clutch went shortly after I checked them.


I've seen that happen to big trucks, it's normally caused by lots of miles running down the road.

Hmm, could be just from the input shaft vibrating against the splines with a load like many miles down the road in a truck or lots of field work in a PK. It wouldn't wear out the clutch plate just maybe the splines.

Of course in a big truck you drive thousands of miles and shift gears and the clutch may not be used. I never used the clutch after I got it moving, you just shift without it. I have replaced clutch because the splines in the disc were completely gone, but the lining looked new.
