Where is a place to get parts for a Case 446? Do Ingersoll dealers still supply parts?
Can an E-Z adjust be converted to an Electric?

Regards...........Ducky

The EZ( or not so EZ) Clutch has not been converted to electric as far as I know. You may remove it and replace it with an electric clutch, but the majority of us here believe that it would be a bad move.

Ducky: The dealers can be found top right under members or in the FAQs: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=887
They can supply most parts.
The discussion I have seen seems to overwhelmingly favor sticking with the mechanical clutch, but I'll defer to the mechanics' mechanics on the site. :thumbsup:

Ingersoll dealers are THE place to get parts. Case stopped supporting these tractors in the mid-80's after they sold the division to Jack Ingersoll. Look in the FAQ's under "Ingersoll Dealers".

Yes, they can be converted. However, many of us prefer the word "perverted" to describe this procedure.

Why would you want to remove the very best clutch ever made and install something inferior? Go to the Library under Service Manuals/Clutch and read about servicing your clutch. Yes....there are several "wear parts" but they can be replaced individually, whereas a failed electric clutch gets replaced totally as a single piece........often for a cost that exceeds $250.00. A properly maintained EZ Clutch will outlast an electric clutch 4 times over.

Thanks all.
Well that clears things up a bit. This is a friend of mine and I am going to give him the manual. He does not seem to think much of the clutch but perhaps the manual can clear some of the fog.
Thx again.

An electric clutch IMO is one of the worst inventions ever on a mower I've been through 3 of these on my green piece of crap.

I think all your friend has to do is properly adjust his clutch or possibly just needs to replace a couple of parts.Theres a new one on CL in wooster Ohio for $350.

I dont know. I've had the same electric clutch on my Cub for 13 or 14 years now. Only problem I had on it was having to remove the brake magnets to keep her going (as gap wears the 'pull force' decreases - so after while you may have to remove the brake).

I do believe its worth taking a look at IF you have a clutch sitting around with the correct ID on it. I'd be interested enough to spend the time taking one apart, flipping the spring plate, and trying it out.

Wanted to add that when I mow with my Case I engage the PTO Clutch once. When I mow with my Cub the PTO clutch gets engaged probably 15 times (reversing shuts off the juice).
:headscratcher: :headscratcher: I might be lookin for that switch :thumbsup:

Rubber Duck lol, I think dealer Tom Hanson is not to far from you?

I dont think there is much wrong with the electrics. I bought a 75ish Massey and it had the original clutch the owner told me, 2nd Kohler though
