Hi there

I recently acquired a Thwaites Orion 1T Dumper - I contacted Thwaites and to my surprise, one Jean Paul :rockon: came back to me with the attached information. In there is a parts list with Tnnnn part numbers that fills in the blanks in the exploded clutch diagram already available on this site

I'm new to the site; I think I can create a download entry for all this stuff but I haven't worked it all out yet.

Hope this is of assistance to all you Orion/Nimbus owners.

Happy days!

The clutch drum looks a lot deeper/wider on mine than the one above. Mines been stood out for over 5 or more years,so hopefully it might be rust covering that's causing it to slip. Anyone done one?



Simon rust would not cause a clutch to slip if you look at the top photo above the square for the 'notes' I have typed 'this is the adjuster' and it is very similar to a car brake adjuster(probably square); you screw the adjuster in until the drum cannot be freely turned then back it off slowly until the drum just rotates freely, the clutch should then be adjusted correctly.
The adjusters do rust and seize so it may take some freeing off; try and adjust it and see how you get on, trial and error is probably the best way, if after adjustment the clutch slips them it may well need new linings in which case you will need to strip it and get the brake/clutch shoes repaired, there are plenty of companies around who can do this for you.
