Electric Clutch Repair?

Recommended Posts

Bruker
My father in law has a late model 20hp Prestige and the electric clutch is making a squealing sound when it is not engaged. I haven't inspected it yet but I'm assuming a bearing is going bad. Are these things repairable or will I need to replace the whole clutch? Thanks!

I had one that squeled, I took it off and seperated it enough to get to the sealed bearing and with a needle tip in a small grease gun was able to slip the needle into the edge of the seal and squirt grease into it, I did this at different locations around the bearing always feeling the needle going between the ball bearings, I do this with all my idler pulleys as well, they are all still going.

Hi, Today I am in Oregon and forgot who I am and my password. Finally remembered. I have replaced these bearings, but rarely do. I wrote a fairly long expanation about these clutches destroying engines and why this happens. These bearings are staked in and you have to press the bearing out, shearing off the stakes. I hope someone can bring up that post. If not, I will try to expound later. Al Eden

Thanks for the tip. I'll probably tear into it tonight and see if I can get the grease needle in there.

        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
