Is this acceptable “ pressure plate resurfacing”

Postby Jamesk » Mon Apr 30, 2018 8:11 pm

I had my dad pick up my pressure plate after resurfacing. See attached pic after the resurfacing. Surface is very wavy in a couple spots. The machinist told my dad that the pressure plate at one time got hot thus causing the waviness. I don’t think that’s what caused the problem.

I’m worried this will cause the clutch to slip. Am I thinking right?

For no more than a new one costs, is it worth the effort to try to use that one??

I agree. I just think I should get the $31 bucks back that they charged me to resurface.

I would be embarrassed to charge someone for machining that looked like that...

Chatter marks, once they start you can’t stop them while machining. Chunk it and buy a new one. $67 plus shipping you can have a brand new one http://www.tmtractor.com/new/cl/625fp.htm

That kind of damage is usually associated with trying to cut too deep on a single pass causing the cutter to shudder. I would replace the pressure plate (and get my money back).

They did what you ask, they should have turned that job down from the beginning. Had it been a rare or irreplaceable part then giving it a try would be worth it.

Jamesk- I hate to ask but how did the flywheel turn out?

Agreed, chatter can be very hard to get rid of... but a piece that thick should not have produced that much (if any) chatter.
I would have liked to see the set up and tooling used.

Generally, resurfacing means you improve the surface, not make it worse.
$31 wouldn't seem so bad had it turned out ok, and it should have (IMHO).

Sounds like a $31 learning experience. I wouldn't bother getting my $$ back, but I also wouldn't use them for any future work either.

:Dito: That was my thought as well.

I replaced my pressure plate last year with a new one from TM Tractor (site sponsor) and it's worked great. Highly recommended.

Me being a machinist, you don't have to tell me I did a terrible job at something. I already know it when it's done :lol:

Sorry i sent you on that wild goose chase. A machine shop worth its salt would have used a grinder not a lathe. Since the chatter is only on one side, i would bet on operator error. Ive saved far worse than what you had.

Typical surface finish requirements are 20 microinches.....only really good lathe men can do that.....but its falling off a log easy with a grinder...
