I'm trying to get the balls back in this clutch on the 57560 DB but they either fall out or i keep missing the hole.Is there some trick to this? :wallbanging:

Try putting a dab of grease on each ball, that should hold them in place long enough for you to get it together.

I was gonna say "scratch em"! :smilewink: But I do really know what you're talking about, and they can be frustrating.

I'm just glad that someone else commented on the topic name and not me. My inner 15 year old can be tough to contain most times.

Yes, bearing grease.

they only appear to be hard, like said above, put a little grease onthe end of your finger and set them right in place. Tipping the tractor over to the side will help, and if you cant tip it, take the other wheel off and set the hub down on the floor. The only hard part of this clutch is getting it apart in the first place, after that its all adjustments.
