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.

      So it's been a week and not much interest in the total package so I'm selling individual pieces, some at lower prices.  I can't take everything with when I move so I'll consider reasonable offers. 
       
      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. Let me know if you would like additional pictures.
       
      So here we go.
       
      Work Horse GT 1848, $475
      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 SOLD
       
      C-160, 1975, $5-$?
      Another project/parts tractor from my collection. No engine, transmission or hubs, front rims or tires.   Previous owner bent the hood, steering wheel and fender.  Rear Wheels, frame, belt guard, hood stand, and floorboards good. St he tractor is now stripped down will sell and ship individual parts.  Let me know what you need. See new pics in comments. 
       
      Deck #1, 36" RD for C-series, $125
      Good condition, bearings quiet and deck straight.  No holes. Used this for the past three years. Mule drive included.
       
      Deck #2, 36" RD from a 67 or 68 short frame, $40
      Good condition no holes. Deck is mostly straight. Deck only. Other items in picture not included
       
      Deck #3, 32" from a 67 Lawn Ranger, $40
      Good condition. I have not used this deck.
       
      Snow blower 6-2211, 1968 short frame, $145
      Here is a working snow blower complete with lift tube and flag.
       
      Restored Wheel Horse Clevis Hitch, $100
       
      Restored Brinly Slot to Clevis Hitch, $80

      Hello, I am looking for a Wheel Horse C-175, 8-speed. It does not need to run or have any attachments. I am located in Virginia but am willing to travel. 
      Thank you for looking.

      Hi folks,
       
      The big Happy Birthday came! So did the Wheel Horse.
       
      Thanks everyone for your advice while I was looking for a tractor. It was appreciated. Now here you go - share the joy of a sons 11 year old birthday. His first tractor! C-81 Wheel Horse.
       
      Darn proud of it!
       
      I'm going to need your guys advice going forward as it's been a long time since I did any rebuild. BTW - I havn't run it - It had old fuel in the tank and hasn't run in some years - but all the systems are looking great. He's getting to work.

      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!
