First of all: welcome to gtt, rowder. :wave:

 

In JDPC you'll find 13 different electromagnetic pto clutches listed. Click here to find the details. I think, when your are skilled in manual work, you can chance the seal. The drawing from John Deere Parts Catalog may help you.

 

And, a picture of the clutch will be nice.

 

Edit: forgot the abridgement Attached File  John Deere 285 - Parts Catalog - e-clutch .pdf   42.15KB   370 downloads   :loosing_it:

Have a look at JDParts.com and do a model search for GT285. The diagrams should show you how the clutch goes together and if JD sells the bearing alone. They are usually replaceable on the older tractors and are a standard sized bearing which is commonly available and cheap. Not sure about that on the newer GT285.

hi guys thanks for the link but mine has a warner electric , clutch its close to the other but mine don't have the snap ring it just has a bearing pressed in the end ,then it has 3 little spots ,looks like the factory took a air chisel with a punch and just dimpled the the ouside of the pully to hold it in , but mine has a sealed bearing , the bearing is good not seemly wore just something got in there and hooked the seal, but ill have to change the bearing thanks guys

They can sometimes be hard to remove if you don't have access to a press. If you can find a press to use it's a whole lot easier than pounding it out.
