Electric clutch question

Recommended Posts

JOHNP
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.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        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
