Im rebuilding a 1650. I am putting a K341 on it. I have what appears to be a slip clutch driven by a pulley about 8" diameter and it has a pulley about 4" diameter. I cant remove it. Ive removed 2 set screws but it still wont come off. Can anyone tell me what it is for and how to remove it. Will valve springs from a K161 be sufficient substitute on a K301. Thanks for any help. Im new at this. Ive almost finished renewing an Original model, putting a 12hp Kohler in it for more power. :confuse: Tom

If I remember correctly there was a thread on this. Underneath the set screws are two more screws.

Yes, the 3 set screws lock against 3 more pointed set screws that lock behind the bearing. These are spaced evenly behind the pulley groove. Gotta get all 6 out 1st. Never had a K161, but I'm comfortable saying you do not want to use those springs in a 301 even if they would fit.

I just joined and I just finished rebuilding my PTO clutch. COOP and OLCOWHAND above is correct; there are locking set screws above the retaining set screws three places. Then use a slap hammer or other hammer to "bump " it off. IE: Bump, bump, then turn clutch/crank about 1/3 turn then repeat until it is off the bearing.

hope this helps,
Jay
