Slipping PTO Clutch

Recommended Posts

D-17_Dave
There is an adjustment that allows the linkage to the lever to be adjusted. The adjustment allows the lever to float without tension an the lever. This tention will hold against the engagement spring and help the clutch to slip. More than likely whether the lever helped hold it or not, if you sliped the clutch, you may have worn or ruined the lineing in the clutch. You'll have to remove the cone and check it out. There should be a strip of lineing inside the cone. If it's not there then it will require being fixed before you can use it again.

That nut occasionally will back off and do this. Get a new nut (its a special lock nut) from the dealer. Torque it to the spec. with the other BGB pulley locked down. This lock nut only good works once.

Don't forget the reface the old clutch bell with leather trick. It was suggested here some time back. It is a fine way to restore an old clutch bell which has had its facing run down too thin. It is an easy process. First scrape off the old lining. Next, apply a good looking coat of contact cement. Then lay on a sheet of leather cut to size. As for the leather, an old belt, or a strip of lacing will do the trick. Give it a day or so to cure. Reinstall the refurbed clutch bell and you are off to the races. Total cost? Next to nothing. It sure worked well here.

I refaced mine. I used an old leather belt, and some guerilla glue. Its still working. It went through about a half a summer. I dont know how much a new one costs. Couldnt be cheap.
