Any BGB removal tips?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to remove the BGB from a 7119 frame. This is the first time I’ve tried this, so, as shown in the repair manual section 6, I am removing the drive pulley and the PTO. I have the nuts off both ends of the shaft, and I am up to removing the cone Clutch. Reading the instructions on section 6 of the repair manual, pages 6-7 through 6-9, I am wondering about the clamp and how it is used. I don’t have a parallel clamp though I could probably get one. What is the purpose of this and why won’t a C-clamp work? Are there any tips or tricks on doing this?

Randy, I have swapped several of these out of tractors and back in. I never used any type of clamp. I just took the nut off and removed the cap that has the lining in it. I don't remember needing a clamp to remove the spring and washers. It may make it easier, but I did mine without any. Just remove the two pivot bolts on the clutch lever, and then remove the nut on the cone housing. There is a stiff spring in there but the the compression length is fairly short, so it won't pop off and break your leg or anything like that. I am pretty sure that all the compression is gone from the spring before the nut comes off the shaft. You may have to remove the adjustment nuts from the clutch actuation rod so that it has enough travel to slide out far enough.
