Do you drive a manual truck? The pressure plate is a significant component of the truck's clutch assembly, which acts as the connection between the transmission and your engine. It works alongside the clutch disc and the flywheel among other components to ensure smooth engagement and disengagement of the clutch when you shift gears. Just like other components that make up the clutch assembly, pressure plates are usually made to last.
My name is George. After working as a teacher for two decades, I retired, and now, my heart, hands and time are wrapped up in restoring a vintage car. I love it, and I want to share some of the minutia of that passion with others. My wife doesn't always want to hear about auto parts, but they are always on my mind. I want a place where I can share buying tips, restoration tips and repair tips, and this blog is the perfect place. I plan to write about my own restoration work as well as general info on auto parts. Thanks for reading.
