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.
