Setting up the PTO Clutch

Fri Jun 05, 2009 8:19 am

Ok i'm looking at the manual on the PTO clutch and it states that when released the clutch stack outside measurement is .050" larger than when its compressed. I also believe it states using a torque wrench at the end of the PTO shaft we should get 50ft.lbs. when we drag the pto shaft thru the clutches with the clutch engaged. To my understanding the way i'm reading it, is this correct???

BigBill,
The .050 measured at the clutch is an adjustment of the clutch pack. The 50 ft lbs is the adjustment of tightness for the twin drive belts.

I believe the 50 ft-lbs is the clutch slippage load not the belts.
