A little late to the party but I had my clutch seize up, not this bad, when I washed the cub with a power washer. Water went in through the attachment holes and froze the clutch together within 15 minutes of turning the washer off. If I hit it right away it was 45 minutes from start to stuck! Luckily I was already going to adjust the clutch and pried it apart/beat on it until it came apart. It sounded like wet Velcro coming apart. Glad you got your repaired and refreshed the cub!

It is great to have the cub working again! Funny thing is, I keep both my 50 and my 77 in the same barn. So, why would the dampness cause the 77 to seize up but the 50 didn't? And in 8 years the 50 has never done it.

Well, it is fixed now. And, thank you to everyone for your input! The factory service manual was also a tremendous help. I recommend one for anyone doing mechanical work on a cub!
Me like tractors. :tractor:

Probably different material in the clutch facing.
