The bearings are quite common and are more of a snug fit than a true press fit. The number should be on the bearing for matching at any bearing supply house.
The new disks are approximately 3/16" thick.Rockdog said:I also noticed I dont have a snap ring that goes between the cam bearings. I dont see anywhere in the manuals that calls out the size snap ring to use and if anyone knows I really appreciate it as I dont want to pull the hub off if I dont have to.
That snap ring is not essential, I have a clutch that works fine without it.
It also came with only 4 wave spring behind the pulley. The manuals show an 'early' clutch that has only four disengagement springs but all the newer ones have six. Am I gonna need to buy a kit of some sort to get a couple of these springs?
I believe you can purchase those individually from a dealer--not cheap last time I checked. I would follow the manual for your clutch as to how many are required.
The cluth service manual says to replace friction disk if it measure below 1/8" in thickness. But doesnt say if that thickness is to be measured at the OD or when looking at the ID which appears to center on a pilot diameter machined into the pulley. The 'thickness' past this pilot diameter is less than the actual thickness of the friction disc. How thick is a new friction disc?
On this site, we have a Technical Library that is easy to find. Go there, click on the Service Manuals and find the various clutch manuals. Reading those will tell you which clutch model you have and how to service it.archtop said:Hi:

You could not get me to put one of those POS electric clutches on my tractor even if you gave me the conversion parts at no cost.Rockdog said:This thing is beggin for an electric clutch.
