What is Mechanical Clutch and How does it work?

1 minuteread


Mechanical Clutch:

Mechanical clutches (or cable-actuated clutches) use a cable to maneuver the clutch disc. They preceded hydraulic clutch systems and were commonly used on cars up until the 1990s. Today, it’s very rare to determine a car with a mechanical clutch, though they’re often used on motorcycles.


How it works:

A mechanical clutch may be a pretty simple system. A steel cable connects the treadle to the clutch assembly. Pressing (or actuating) the pedal moves the cable. This moves the clutch fork, which actuates the clutch throwout bearing. This then disengages the clutch plate.

The lack of hydraulic assistance often makes a mechanical clutch’s pedal weight feel heavier. Even people who grew up driving modern manual transmission cars may find that mechanical clutch cars take some getting accustomed to. The direct connection of a mechanical clutch means the motive force will typically feel more engagement when shifting.
