New PTO clutch lining for 3414S

Recommended Posts

skunkhome
In one of the threads I read that I could buy clutch lining material for the center mounted PTO from NAPA. Does the clutch lining come in different thicknesses? If so, what thickness is needed for the PTO clutch plate.

I want to add a question on this topic, that being Is the lining material able to be re-adhered to the cap if it comes loose?

I would try spreading contact cement between the lining and the plate. Keep them separated with tooth picks until glue is "dry" (about 15 min) then pull the toothpicks and reinstall plate on PTO and engage. The pressure of the clutch cone should press the lining tight.

I need new clutch material on my cone clutch as well, so let me what you find. I priced a new one and it was $85 plus shipping OUCH!

I went to NAPA and they had nothing for me so I came home, cut up an old leather belt and glued it in place with contact cement..... and it worked. Time will only tell how long it lasts but I cut the grass in my yard yesterday which was tall and wet due to afternoon showers . I did not notice any evidence of slippage. The strip of leather was approx 12" long 3/8" wide and about 1/16" thick.

There once was another guy on this site who used a leather belt and formica contact cement to fix a front clutch when it went out in the middle of a snowstorm while driving a blower. Last I heard about that was two years later and still working fine. He bought a new $80 unit and it is still hanging on the wall of the garage. Been thinking about trying that myself since I have a clutch with the lining gone.
