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.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
