Clutch pilot bushing

Postby Farmcub31 » Fri May 29, 2015 6:00 am

I was able to take out my old bushing with a blind bearing puller. I tried installing the new bushing but it was so tight getting in that I believe I sorta messed it up putting the new one in. How are you guys installing your pilot bushing with it on the tractor? How tight should it be going in? How are you keeping it straight driving it in? Thanks for any help.

A while back there was a forum member who realized after his tractor was put back together that the bushing inside diameter was too small, creating drag on the drive shaft. If the bushing was that tight going in, you likely have reduced the inside diameter and it will need to be reamed to spec.
