Hot Spots

Hot Spots Picture
The blue 'hot spots' on this plate will cause clutch chatter or grabbing. The metal in these areas has been heated much more than the surrounding area. They will usually be lower than the rest of the plate. Occasionally they will be raised bumps on the plate where the metal has actually 'pulled'. If the plate has not been seriously warped by the heat, it can be ground to remove the hot spots and bring the plate back flat.
