Cone clutch screeching

Recommended Posts

Lately when I am moving my 3415h from my garage to where I start mowing, I have been hearing an occasional screeching noise coming from the cone clutch. It is quiet when engaged and I am mowing, however. This weekend I decided to see what was going on. It looks like the pulleys are spinning on the shaft, instead of the bearing spinning. There is a sleeve in the bearing assembly which measures 0.915", but should be 0.875". The bearing sounds fine, though. So I looked in my manual for the part number, and it says its a bushing assembly (174859). Does anyone know if the bushing assembly I mentioned is actually a bearing assembly? I am not sure if the parts are original or not. The cone clutch plate has a sleeve installed in it

The pulley with "Bushing Assembly" Looks like this:

The bushing is scored on the inside. This is what it looks like close up:

I was going to purchase a new part. It's pricey so I want to make sure it's right.

Hi, Check the shaft, if it is not smooth and true, the new assy will do the same thing. The clutch has a recess to lock the retainer ring in the groove when the assy is tightened up. Check the brake lining material on the pivot assy that pulls the pulley out. If the bearing assy has the bearing with the radiused outer race, you will need to buy a kit that has the new style spring seats with it. The old style bearings are not available. Al Eden
