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

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.

    • C-120 106752 choke cable
      By cafoose
      I need a choke cable for a 1974 C-120 automatic, tractor model 1-0490, part number 106752, old part number is 1018137. When it gets cold out mine won't move. I removed it and lubricated it with tri-flow and it worked for two days and froze up again.
    • Wanted C160 or c165
      By jaydeer
      I am looking for another c160 or c165.  Have many wheel horse tractors for trade or can buy, prefer to trade but do have cash. Would like hydro but 8 speed fine.  Have a lot of collectible tractors to trade for a solid running 16 horse.  Deck an attachments not important. Located in western pa.
    • C-195 with attachments
      By Decker4
      I hate to do it, but I'm afraid the time has come to sell my 1984 C-195. My Grandfather bought the tractor new in '84. After he died, my father had it for a bit, but really didn't care for it the way he should have. He eventually gave it to me and I did some minor repairs so it ran pretty well. I used it to plow and mow for a number of years. What's included:
       
      1984 Wheel Horse C-195 black hood edition
      19.5 hp twin Kohler engine
      3 point hitch (NO rear PTO)
      60" heavy plow
      48" mower deck
      36" (I think) Snow thrower
      original owners manual
      Wheel weights (Tires are also filled, gel I think)
      Chains on all four tires (not standard)
      An assortment of other part, including heavy bar for the snow thrower, a pull chair, spare oil filter, etc.
       
      The good:
      The tractor starts and runs well. It has some cosmetic 'blemishes' but not what I would call damage. All the attachments work. It's big, powerful, and a lot of fun. 
       
      The bad:
      It does leak a little oil.
      It starts, but the current battery is undersized, so while it starts fine in the summer, I've been using my truck to start it in the winter. The easy solution is battery with more cold cranking Amps.
      The mower deck has been redone with some welding (heavy duty steel) where it rusted through. The center guide wheel it missing.
      The snow thrower works, but is currently missing a chain.
       
      I moved three years ago and now have less than an acre to mow. The house I bought came with a very new Cub Cadet and a Toro snow blower, so I haven't had much of a need for the Horse. I've been debating what to do with it for some time. It's a great machine, but needs some TLC, and it needs to come from someone who has more time to put it into it, more experience, more resources, and a better shop than I have. I think this is an ideal restoration project and that's what I would love to see happen to it. I really prefer to sell everything as a set. I also have a Wheel Horse wagon (60"x30", I think) that I may be willing to part with as well, but that is not included in this list price. Please email me if you're interested with "C-195" in the subject line. I live in Upstate NY along the PA line. I can provide more pictures if need be.

    • New Here and Need Help Identifying Model
      By cslxt8
      Hello I am new to this forum but have enjoyed my time here already. I bought a couple of new additions to go with my C111 last month and I need help identifying the model number of the one shown in the picture. The serial number plate has the following on it: 1st line- 10K801 02484, 2nd line-7351 or 7851 (hard to read as someone has sanded on it). I also could not find where any badge on the engine to identify them either. Is there a specific place to look on Kohler engines? I have not had time to inspect them much yet as I am finishing up school. All together I got an Auto 10 mostly complete, front mount blade, an extra set of rear tires/wheels, and an extra hydro rear end. Mainly I just wanted the blade but as it goes I could not pass up on the whole lot haha. I have never ran a hydro model so curiosity got the best of me too! 
       
      I can get more info if needed once I get settled after the new year.
       
      Thanks in advance for any help!
