Ok, today I finally got the clutch off and I need you guys to tell me what's wrong with it. I only got 8 balls out of the bearing, and nothing looks really broken, so all help and advice appreciated!image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

It probably just needs a good cleaning.

It looks to have grease in the clutch material. I would use brake cleaner and spray it several times to get all the grease I could. Make sure if there are any bearings or bushings that you grease then back up after you put it together. don't over grease the clutch or you will have grease all over the clutch linings again.

Look closely the pulley should have a small ball it, this is to grease the bushing. Make sure you clean that out so you can grease it later. I believe the lining is rivited to the plates. Just clean the dirt and grease off, and it should be ok.

It is a 917.575.138

you sure that ending is correct? My list goes from 917.575131- 917.575144, it skips anything in between.

It's one of the last 5 made.

The last 5 were the 138, 139, 142, 143, and the 144. I have part of a 144 out back.

Yours was made about 1962.
