Re: 700R4 build thread.

3-4 Clutch Continued....

Set 3-4 Clutch Clearance at .035" to .045".

After setting Clearance, Remove Snap Ring & Backing Plate.
Install the 5 Load Release Spring assemblies. These keep the Clutch plates from dragging when the 3-4 Clutch is released.

Many builders don't install the release springs, I have never had an issue with using them. There is plenty of info on the subject & a ATSG bulletin saying not to use them. But I have Never traced a 3-4 failure back to the springs
