Clutch pilot tool ?

Postby buster » Mon Apr 11, 2005 3:43 pm

I finally got around to splitting my cub to replace the rear seal in the engine. Thanks to all the tips I read here I discovered that the problem was a new number seal in the old style retainer. When I pulled the flywheel off the seal was sticking out at the bottom and I can R & R with my fingers. I've had the tractor for 15 years before it came loose. I ordered a new style retainer from tm tractor and a new seal from napa. My question is do I need a pilot shaft tool to align the clutch for reassembly or can it be done without it.

The best bet would be to use a line-up tool. Call John Jr. at JP Tractor Salvage...he'll send you the cut-off end of the clutch shaft for $5-10.

It makes it a "LOT" easier if you can get a wooden dowel to center the clutch. Shaped to fit as necessary.

:( Too late for Buster but if you take the clutch disk in to most auto parts stores they can match you up with an alignment tool. I got mine at Auto Zone for about $5.00.
Always try the easiest thing first.

I couldn'r find one that would fit both my pilot bsushing and clutch disk, so for my first time changing a clutch I got a plastic alinement too that fit the pilot and stuck it in a half inch drill and used a grinder to turn down the spline part to slip inside the clutch. Now I have a cut off shaft I use.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
