Franklin Cooling Fan and Clutch Disc Rebuilding Service.

Series 9 Driveshaft Flexible U-joint Discs Sets.

I make and install flexible discs for the cooling fan and clutch disc hubs. The discs are made from new, reinforced synthetic rubber that is machined to the original sizes. This material is more oil and water resistant, and stronger than the original natural rubber and cotton canvas discs were. The new discs are then installed with the same type heavy-duty rivets that Franklin originally used.

As part of the clutch disc service, I can rivet on new, non-asbestos friction facings for all 1922 to 34 clutch discs. I also sell sets of new facings for the Series 9B that use two free-floating facings. However, I do not rebuild the earlier type metal disc clutches.
