lo-boy 154 clutch

Postby fixemup » Fri Jan 22, 2016 6:31 pm

hello all,

I have a 74 cub lo-boy 154.a while back I purchased a clutch kit with throw out bearing from Hamilton bobs cub parts and did the installation. the clutch has never worked since. the clutch kit came with washers to use as spacers between the pressure plate and flywheel. no matter how I adjust the linkage I cannot get the clutch to disengage. I can get it to slow down, but at the end of the day the transmission will still overdrive the tractor. my last thought is a warped flywheel. I did not have the flywheel turned down at the time of repair because they wanted an astronomical rate to do so. The flywheel looks to be in great shape and I cannot see any signs of warp or high spots.

I have come here for some help. Am I missing something? I have worked on this thing again and again with eventually getting tired of trying and letting it sit for 6 months before I try again. I am really hoping there is something obvious that I am missing.

Clutch brake? Pilot bushing in flywheel?
I have an excuse. CRS.

There are some manuals that show adjustment procedures at the links at the top of this page. Look under "NUMBER SERIES CUBS".

May have to do a mild burn in to get finger prints or other oily film burned off so the clutch is perfectly dry!---I too will have to do throw-out bearing on my 185 when weather warms up so I can work out side again! thanks; sonny
