Hey Everyone,

 

              I have been looking for a while now for a driveshaft/clutch system assembly for my old 800.  I was able to come across one today that has good bearings, but had a clutch disc fall out and break into pieces for a friend of mine.  Upon disassembly of the shaft I found the other to be nonsecured as well, but this one didnt break at all.  A little while back I had bought a NOS drive pulley from Ricks Bolens Tractor Parts and had the intention of just swapping out the old pulley with the NOS one which had new clutch discs installed on it, but when I looked at the 2 in comparison I found the NOS one to be missing what looks to me like bushing that run through the middle of the pulley.  I also have the smaller clutch disc that was originally on my original pulley in good shape and I was able to find a NOS bigger clutch disc which I recieved when I bought my 900, the only problem I have is that there are no "sticky" material left on either, so here are some questions I have...

 

1.  Can I buy something to stick on the old discs to reattach them to my old pulley and what is it and how do I do it?

 

2.  Can I buy the bushings to install in the NOS pulley?

 

3.  Can I remove the old bushings from my old pulley and install them in the NOS pulley?

 

4.  Can I still get New Discs and just install them on my old pulley?

 

Thanks for any and all help, I took several pics of what im dealing with so everyone can see as well so here are those,,,

I would have to check and see if i have the bushing new but you can press out the old and press it into th new one. As for discs i do have them here.

1 i used J-B weld on the brake pads on my H14 that broke where the rives go in 2  Personally i would bring the shaft and pulley to a Bearing-driveline shop they should be able to match something up rather in the bushing or bearings (i would get bearings) 3 You might get away with that but normally bushings are Over sized so they can be pressed in then you would run a ream thru the Id of the bushing to make it a few thousands over sized from the shaft 4 you might be able to find new disks I know there was talk of reproductions but i don't know much more than that ..

You best bet would be to go to a drive line place and explane what you need  oe go to a machine shop ..

Have to agree with Bob,you should be able to use your old bearing,I'll also check for the bearing incase Bob doesn't have it

Looks like Bob and rick have you on the right track.

While everything is apart I'd check your bearing behind the pulley and see if it needs replacing.

I looked and do have the bushings in stock and they run $3.66 each and takes two of them. As for glueing the disc back on you can use a 2 part epoxy that can be gotten at your local auto parts store as i have used that with no problems.

I am going to try the epoxy once and see what happens, i never did that before is there anything special I need to do or just follow the instructions they give on the package.  Also I am going to send you a PM...
