Throwout bearings

Postby Oldthings » Thu Feb 18, 2016 12:09 am

Which throwout bearing would be best when I split my 49 cub to replace the oil seal? I have no problems with the clutch but since its apart it I am considering a complete kit as prevention.. Its never been split and it has the original graphite bearing. Should I replace it with another graphite bearing? Use a roller bearing with the zerk fitting or try a automotive type bearing that is available that requires no grease? Should I replace anything? I think at least the disc needs replaced because its adjusted where it catches right off fully depressed. It does have 1-2 inches of free play at full release. Thanks, Ray

My opinion.

Wait to order parts until the tractor has been split and the individual pieces inspected. You may only need the graphite throw out bearing, pilot shaft bushing, and perhaps the clutch disk.

A lot of clutch kits are junk. The original pressure plate is probably in good condition and of much better quality than the one provided in kits.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I wouldn't replace any parts unless they are badly worn. A half worn, original clutch, will outlast 2 new ones! I've bought used clutches, rather than use the new ones. Had a new clutch disk, spit the lining out the hand hole, after 2 hours of light use.

Wow.... you guys are ruining my faith in Chines parts. :lol:
You're right, it is better to refurbish the older used parts then what is available today.

Thanks for the info. I think I will just replace the bearing with graphite type and inspect the other parts. Readjust the pressure plate fingers if needed. It functions just fine, No noise, vibration or slippage even pulling some logs with it. Anyone one tried a provider out of Indiana who relines original disc? Although I am a new member to this forum, I have read it for years and has provided a wealth of info, saving me aggravation and money. Thanks to all. Ray

Be sure to grease the TO bearing, before use. (TM bearings, are pre greased) Soak in oil, if dry.

10 or 15 years ago I purchased a new Cub clutch disc from the local auto parts store.

If you want to have some one reline your clutch disc, inquire at your local auto parts store.

Type of grease to use.

AS it has been said many times --- only use CHEAP, LOW TEMPERATURE GREASE so it will penetrate the pores of the graphite. High temperature, extreme pressure, etc. stuff will NOT lubricate the graphite....
