Good morning everyone-

I am a new to this group and a new HG owner with some basic mechanical knowledge, but learning as I go.  last fall the clutch stopped functioning on my HG, I tried many of the tips I found online about putting a load on, etc, however I decided to pull it into the barn and take it apart along with a few other projects that needed to be done on it. 

I pulled the case yesterday and found that the friction plate was totally shot.  I'll be replacing that along with the majority of the bearings inside.  My question, however is in regard to the springs within the assembly.  should I replace these?  they seem to function properly, however due to their age i'm sure they have lost some of their tension.

the two i am most concerned about are :

1.  Throw out sleeve spring  112754
2.  Yoke rod spring  37202

any advice you could offer would be most helpful.

thanks in advance,
Robert Barbour

The rod spring 37202 is the return spring and should have pressure on the housing when the clutch is engaged.  The sleeve spring is an anti rattle spring the holds the release bearing on the yoke.  The important thing is to have the 3 112 211 screws all set to the correct length.
