so i'm trying to get out the bearings before i bake this stuff and have two questions.

i just removed the retaining ring from the larger clutch flange and don't know how to get this part out (the rectangular thing that attaches to the yoke). i think i'll punch it from the other side. it looks like some spindles have already been broken off.

second. on the pulley assembly, there is a spacer and two needle bearings. right now, nothing spins. when i put it on the drive shaft and spin it, it spins inside the spacer. i'll know more when i pop them out, but it seems like the spacer should spin?

thanks for all the help,

jeff

the needle bearings where toasted...

i'm driving to go pick up a new pair at Applied Industries in Sydney, OH.

sam said to just use another piece of steel to pull the whole thing together for the baking.

i'll give you an update soon...

Woo hoo!

I got the whole tractor put back together and the lawn is mowed! Thank you all for your support and advice.

It was definitely harder to put back together. I learned some new things! I still haven't got the clutch pedal set up perfect yet, but the whole tractor runs much better, especially when engaging the clutch in a high gear and a load.

Thanks again,

jeff
