The clutch which I had made to save myself in falling had torn away this chin-band and let the lower jaw drop on the breast; but little else was disturbed, and there was Colonel John Mohune resting as he had been laid out a century ago.
A clutch is a device that allows a solid coupling to be formed between the transmission and the engine The clutch is manufactured out of a friction material such as asbestos; it is shaped in the form of a disc Located between the pressure plate and the flywheel, the clutch connects the engine with the transmission by creating a solid coupling This solid coupling can be engaged and disengaged, allowing the gears to be changed with one push of the clutch pedal
A mechanical device which uses mechanical, magnetic, or friction type connections to facilitate engaging or disengaging two rotating members Examples: the friction clutch located between the engine and manual transmission or the a/c clutch
R/C helicopters use a clutch so that the engine can idle without the rotor blades spinning Usually they use clutch shoes which when spinning spread out and rub against the clutch drum causing it to rotate and spin the gears
If you clutch at something or clutch something, you hold it tightly, usually because you are afraid or anxious. I staggered and had to clutch at a chair for support She was clutching a photograph. = grasp, grip
A device that couples the engine to the transmission The clutch consists of a friction-lined disk (called the "clutch disk") and a spring-loaded "pressure plate" that presses the clutch disk tightly against the flywheel (See Flywheel) When you push in on the clutch pedal, the linkage releases the spring pressure allowing the clutch disk to slip The clutch disk is subjected to a tremendous amount of friction and heat, which eventually wears it out At this point it starts to slip Oil or grease on the flywheel, weak or broken springs in the pressure plate, or overadjusted linkage can also make it slip If it fails to release, the most likely cause is a broken clutch cable Replacing the clutch is fairly heavy work because it involves removing the transmission You may want to let a pro do it for you
(Otomotiv) Any device that connects or disconnects power transfer in rotating parts. In a manual transmission, this pedal operated device disconnects the engine from the transmission to allow the car to change gears, and then allows the engine and transmission to resume contact and turn together at a new speed. Clutches are also used in automatic transmissions, air conditioners, and differentials

to clutch at straws: see straw. Device for quickly and easily connecting or disconnecting a pair of rotatable coaxial shafts. Clutches are usually placed between the driving motor and the input shaft to a machine and provide a convenient means for starting and stopping the machine and permitting the driving motor or engine to be started in an unloaded state (as in an automobile). Mechanical clutches provide either a positive (no-slip) or a friction-dependent drive; centrifugal clutches provide automatic engagement. An overrunning clutch transmits torque in one direction only and permits the driven shaft of a machine to freewheel (continue rotating after the driver stops); on bicycles, such clutches permit the rider to coast without moving the pedals
Purpose designed 'chain system' forging that allows a link of sling chain to be grabbed in order to shorten the overall length of the chain The forging ensures the grabbed link is correctly loaded and no link is trapped or damaged Submitted by Piers from London, UK
