Sourcing a suitable PTO Electric Clutch for a D200

Recommended Posts

stevieb

Hi

I have a 1978 D200 wheelhorse powered by a Kohler twin cylinder engine

It is used for grass cutting and has a 48inch cutting deck

The manual PTO clutch is shot and I would like to fit an electric one

Any ideas where to source a suitable one?

Thanks

Steve

If you want an electric PTO the simplest thing to do is to add a D-160 to your collection. If you have more than one you can keep different attachments on them like a mower on the D-160 and a plow on the D-200.

 

You can also brag about having a pair of Ds.

That clutch can be rebuilt , although it's not all that easy nor cheap . There are some thin rings that hold the bearings in there that need removed , press out the bearings and replace . The two clutch disks are about $30 each and i believe Toro still sells them .

Thanks for the info on the electric PTO option it seems to be the most feasible option (but expensive), maybe I can find a good used one.

 

On the original Manual PTO front, in 2011 the clutch bearing disintegrated, I sourced the parts and rebuilt it (I had to re-use the thin rings that Sarge mentions above) 

It worked for a while but the pulley never really engaged properly and the clutch would slip with a heavy load. 

Now it needs a new rebuild and parts are becoming scarcer. I agree that it would be more original to rebuild but, unless I get some parts made, I doubt it would be possible.

Hi

I managed to get the clutch re-built.

Someone local built some unavailable parts and managed to manufacture some clutch linings

I think the thin rings that Sarge mentions were part of the problem (what I would call thrust washers).

Anyway I think the mower will be in action again early next week

Thanks for all your suggestions

That was my point - the parts inside that clutch aren't that specific , nor that complicated and it shouldn't be too hard to make or adapt parts to rebuild it . The only thing that gets expensive is the clutch linings themselves and there are two of them ...but they are the same basically .

 

That's a great looking D 200 ,  btw...

      Looking for a PTO for my 310.  Would like the complete assembly, but at very least I need the inner clutch plate, and outer PTO bearing.

      What direction does the front PTO Pulley turn on a wheel horse D180 with a Kohler K482 as you face the front of the tractor?
       
      I want to get a hydraulic pump for a Johnson 10 loader I will be mounting to tractor and want to make sure I get a pump that rotates the correct direction.

      Barn find 1975 D180. 608 original hours. Tractor and 48” belly mower look to be still in their original paint. Rear 60” finish mower looks like it has had one coat of new paint added at some point. Open to trades. Please email me with any questions or for additional photos. 35 miles north of Pittsbugh.

      Grandpa wouldn't line up in right way.  Stubborn. Nice day today, got some of my herd out. 315-8 w/42" deck to mow. D200 to disc w/tandem disc. 520H w/36" tiller. And RJ59 with 36" Parker Sweeper. These horses done me well today.

      Hi All,
       
      My first post on here so apologies in advance for any rookie mistakes.
       
      First off, I am the proud owner of a "new to me" 312-8. I took it out for a spin yesterday and when I engaged the PTO, currently there is a 42 in side discharge mower deck on it, there were sparks flying from the disk directly below the muffler (maybe the flywheel or clutch?). Any idea what that may be and what needs to be addressed?
       
      Thank you !!
