900 Series PTO

After using my 916H to snowblow this past winter my PTO doesn't have the same grip as it did before. I looked it over and it has quite a bit of wobble back and forth on the shaft. I have rebuilt this type of clutch before but remind me, does it ride tight on the shaft with the bearing or have some clearing between the bearing and shaft? Brandon

They all ahve some wobble to them but shouldnt be terribly excessive. The cap is what you need to look at if the pully is slipping. The lining in the cap may be about worn out.

You may have lost the bearing inside the pulleys. I have had two of those go bad. The last one nearly ruined the shaft on the BGB that the clutch mounts on. There is a thin metal sleeve inside the inner race of the bearing. If the bearing starts to get rough it will spin the sleeve on the shaft and tear it to pieces. The pieces can then bunch up and spin on the shaft messing up the shaft. The sleeve is supposed to slide side to side but spin with the shaft as it turns.
