Electric clutch question


JOHNP

Recommended Posts

Have the electric clutch off of a sears tractor. It's about ten years old. When engaged it was making a metal to metal squealing sound. I removed it and seperated it, expecting to see a worn lining. There was no lining at all. Do these clutches run metal to metal when engaged ??

Yes. They do run metal to metal. Check the specified air gap for the clutch. Generally about .020" to .036" is sufficient. Will the pulley turn freely with the clutch disengaged? Could be a frozen idler bearing in the clutch also. The magent may be bad.

Daryl, welcome to the club. Thanx for the response. Magnets good but the bearing feels dry. Gonna replace that, but my old wheel horse had a fiber like (brake) lining and i just figured this would also. Guess not.
