Front PTO

Recommended Posts


looking for some help with a front pto on a 3416

the clutch material was worn down too far and I glued on some leather with gorilla glue. didn't last long. will epoxy work on this app or am I going to need a new one. also the brake support assmy the brake pads were gone and I had epoxied new leather there and it also did not last long.

Would I be better off looking for an elect pto, if so what rotation direction are they looking for from the seat or the front looking at it

thanks mike

I just checked and found the new clutch plate with lining lists for $114. Have no idea how much an electric clutch is but if you get a new clutch plate for the manual clutch (if you can't get a repair to work on the old one) you'd have a clutch that will probably last another 40 years with no cobble work. I think the part with the brake linings on it is NLA but you should he ab Le to get a repair to work there since those pads only have to work a few seconds at a time.

The piece with the material pads on my front clutch were in good shape but got rusty underneath and fell off from the previous owner leaving it outside so I sandblasted both the back of the material pads and steel part and used JB weld and that worked. It would probably work with leather too I would think.

I have made rear PTO clutches and I glue my leather on with contact cement. The one on my 716H was installed 3 years ago and still works like it did when installed.

Put a thin coat of contact cement on both the leather and the metal. Let them sit for 15-20 minutes then put the leather lining on the metal part. Just remember one thing: With contact cement the parts are instantly stuck together when they touch. Formica countertop adhesive is a fantastic contact cement. I just use 3M contact cement and it seems to work fine.

Gorilla Glue has never worked well on anything I have used it on.

I wouldn't use epoxy because a buildup is not necessary and some epoxies will soften with heat.

I use contact cement because it is cheap and works.

That is my 2cents. Use whatever you want.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
