Title: Adjustable bushing flange for clutch

Abstract: An improved structure for allowing adjustment of a clutch due to wear includes a bushing which has a flange that is adjustably mounted on said bushing. In one method of providing the feature, the flange is provided by a washer which allows movement of the bushing within the washer in one direction but prevents movement in the opposed direction. In a second way of achieving the adjustment, the flange is provided by a nut which is threadably received on an outer periphery of the bushing.
