Recommended Posts

Several monthes ago there was some discussion and pictures about repairing the pto clutch coils, specifically replacing the potting material that surrounds the coil. Could anyone pass on the info if they still have it? Thanks!

I have used two part epoxy with good luck. I think Maynerd said he had used a gas tank repair kit from NAPA auto parts.

There are LOTs of epoxies out there, I would caution you to use a Hi heat, non conductive type. Scouting out a electric motor repair or something of that sort might be worth while. I'm in the process of doing 2 coils now, When I get them done & tested I'll let you know the 'scoop'. Take Care, JP

Motor repair places also use a product called Glyptal made by GE. They use it for sealing motor windings and the like. Racers also use it for painting the inside of engine blocks to aid oil drainback and it lives at those temperatures quite well.
