PTO clutch plate lining

13 posts in this topic

I need to replace the friction lining on the PTO of my C-100.

Can anyone tell me the original thickness of the lining when new?

I'm thinking of just bonding the new lining to the plate with epoxy rather than using rivets - is that ok?

Thanks

Andy,

I bonded one with JB Weld. Worked fine. I will check the thickness of a new clutch facing for you tomorrow and post it for you.

Why not buy a new clutch facing (PN 4365) and (6) new rivets (PN 6657) from Toro?...they are still available.

You might want to check the diameter of both PTO "bells"...I think the clutch facing w/rivet holes is smaller that the bonded facing?

What year did they quit using the small bells, will they work well on a C series tractor ??

I bonded my last one, didn't completly trust it so I put I think four equally

spaced rivets. Worked fine and purchased it at my local bearing supply of all places.

they just had many different sizes, havent got a clue what for and it only cost me I think about six bucks

about five years ago. Shortly after that I was in a huge John Deere dealer and they had about a bazillion

clutch facings for whatever, so Deere must have a bunch of stuff with about the same facings.

Say Bowtie, the replacement plate in the picture contacts the machined surface on my bell perfectly, but the original only contacted about 2/3's of the surface area. The new plate pictured is a toro replacement, I just think its an improved design with more holding power. :twocents-02cents:

HELLO GUYS, I JUST PUT A DISC ON A SPARE PLATE TODAY. I USED A 2 PART STRUCTURAL ADHESIVE AND CLAMPED IT. TOMORROW I WILL CHECK IT AND WILL ADD HOLLOW STEELL RIVITS. I WILL USE A DREMEL SANDING STONE IN A DRILL PRESS TO BORE THE DISC MATERIAL. THE RIVITS NEED TO BE COUNTER SUNK IN THE DISC MATERIAL. MY DISC MATERIAL IS .125 THICK AND I PLAN ON COUNTER SINKING AROUND .050-.060 DEEP. THIS IS MY FIRST ATTEMPT. I HAVE ONE SPARE DISC MATERIAL AND RIVITS IF ANYBODY IS INTERESTED. THANKS

Andy,

I measured the clutch facing and it is .120 thick. This one is a new facing that uses rivets. The one I bonded originally had rivets.

Thanks for that Marv :handgestures-thumbup:.

Being as everything is metric here in the UK I make that to be 3mm, just need to source some lining material next.

Good job I asked as I'd have guessed thicker than that - it appears that there was never much 'meat' on these from new.

Why not buy a new clutch facing (PN 4365) and (6) new rivets (PN 6657) from Toro?...they are still available.

That's useful information Frank :handgestures-thumbup: - slight issue in the UK is that you can order parts from Toro here but $ converts to £ on a one for one basis :angry: and if there's no stock in the UK you can wait weeks for the next shipment to arrive. :confusion-waiting:

I think I'll just bond the facing and use the PTO assembly itself to apply the necessary pressure - making sure of course that I dont get any adhesive on the wrong side! I think pretty much all automobile type applications use bonded linings these days.

Check the thickness of the metal new plate, if it's not the same as the old one it will ware out the c-clips. Got one from Toro that was thinner had to put a thin shim behind the plate to fix it.

      Selling off part of my collection, some projects and attachments.  I'm anticipating a move in the next year and need to thin the heard down to a manageable number due to storage issues.  I know I'll never have the time to get to all my projects so I decided the following tractors and attachments can go. 
       
      I realize that this might be next to impossible but I'd like to work out a package deal with someone for everything. To get the add started, I listed an asking price for each item. However,
      I'd consider reducing everything by 15% for a total package deal and would throw in some extra parts and items that I haven't listed for the right deal. That puts a package deal at $1258, a $222 reduction.   So here's my thought, If I've got items you interested in, buy the whole package and sell the rest at a profit.  If your interested in this package call or PM me and we can discuss details.  If your only interested in individual items let me know and I'll put you on a list incase I can't work out a package deal. Give me a week or so to see if I can work out a package deal.
       
      So here we go. (some pictures are in my phone and will be added later)
       
      Work Horse GT 1848, $550
      No attachments. Runs great and has hydro transmission and hydro lift.  Strong running non smoking B&S 18 hp engine. Forward/reverse lever needs adjustment. Previous owner rebuilt the carb, installed new tie-rod ends and gave it a so-so rattle can paint job to keep it from rusting. No fluid leaks. Tires hold air and have good rubber.  I installed a new drive belt and changed the transmission filter and fluid. Excellent candidate for a restoration or use it as is. 
       
      C-81, 1979 $150
      No deck or mule drive. Excellent condition 8 speed and chassis.  Transmission and hubs in good condition.  All sheet metal is straight. I used this tractor for the past three years.  Everything works and is in good condition.  The engine was sold to a friend that needed one.  Tires good but front left won't hold air. All this needs is an engine and tire tube.
       
      C-160, 1975, $50
      Another project/parts tractor from my collection. No engine, transmission or hubs.  Previous owner bent the hood, steering wheel and fender one front tire is shot.  Wheels, frame, belt guard, hood stand, and floorboards good.

      Good condition. I have not used this deck.

      Excellent condition blade complete with angle adjustment and will include a mounting bracket.

      1975 C-120 Auto. Model # 5-1211 48" SD mower deck. Model # 06-42ST04 snowthrower, lift flag and tire chains included. Tractor runs excellent. uses no oil, no leaks, new muffler, fuel pump, fuel filter, new front wheel bearings, all tires hold air, fluids all changed. PTO is cleaned and greased. Manuals are included. No dings or dents. Everything works as it should. I'm the 2nd owner. Original paint. I've owned it for 4 years. I put 40-50 hours on it. I've repaired or replaced anything that was a issue with the tractor. I don't want to sell it, but I have to many and have to let some tractors go!

      I have a wheel horse c-161 automatic hydro, And I was plowing with it, there is a small bar under the seat that swings back and forth with the hydraulics and it is attached to a circular piece with 2 bushings that have a small flange on the end of them, they are both pretty much shot and the one flange broke off so I could no longer raise my plow because the piece holding the bar with the bushings popped out because the one bushing is completely shot, Anybody Know where I can get these small bushings?

      Hi all... I am restoring a GT14 and having a hard time sourcing a snow plow for it. I was recently informed that a C-series plow fits the GT14. I understand the GT14 requires a long frame set up. But I feel like I read somewhere that there are 2 versions of long frame plows. An early version and a later version. So... I'm confused and just not certain exactly what I can use for it. I do have a snow plow that will fit most tractors. Has anyone modified a plow like this to fit a GT14 or another long frame tractor?
      here are a few pics of the plow I have. It's a 42" snow plow.

      Morning all, does anyone have a picture of the correct route for the throttle cable on a C series 101-161?
      I can't seem to find a good place for mine without fouling the governor arm, I'm not sure if I have brackets missing or what, so a picture of this set up would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance.
