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.

I did'nt get just the friction material, I bought the clutch plate on :techie-ebay: for $60, I also replaced both bearings.

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.

    • The wife said I need a hobby... C160 Auto
      By Emmy's Dad
       New to the forum here so forgive me if this question has been already. 
       
      A while ago I was given an '87 John Deere 214 from my wife's grandpa and it started an interest in restoration. Lucky for me, it had been garage kept for the last 15 years.
       
      Long story short, a friend of mine got to talking and he said he has an old Wheel Horse C-160 Automatic that he was going to scrap. He said if I can come get it, I can have it for free. Seems like the tractor is mostly complete other than the headlight assy., gas tank, and a cover in the center where the shifter would go on the 8-speed models. Not sure of the year but is has hydraulic lift 48" deck (some rusted spots) and seems to be in decent shape for being outside for the last 5 years. 
       
      My main question is "does anyone have any pictures I can compare to so I can see what else is missing?" 
       
      Trying to figure out if it's worth my time.
       
      Thanks for the help!
    • New year needs help with Air Horse
      By Paul1650
      Recently purchased a 1973 14hp Automatic airhorse like the one in the pic here.   Model is 1-0435. Need it as tug for my airplane. 
       
      It won't go in reverse or forward anymore.  Everything looks fine.   The local Toro shop says the transmission has gone and no parts available anymore.   I see it uses a Sundstrand 90-1136.
       
      Any ideas on repairs.   I am not in a position to repair myself.  Just. Looking to get replacement or substitute parts/sub assemblies for the local toro shop to effect a repair. 
       
      Thank
      Paul
