That is ashame!!! At my last company they scrapped so many of these when they moved to China.

 

The company I am at now uses Torque Limiters on everything. But I don't think any are that style? I'll check to see just in case.

 

And you are right, these work opposite a clutch. These you want them to slip when to large of a load is applied (so nothing snaps), where as a clutch you don't want it to slip.

Scott & Daniel, a suggestion. Scott ship the damaged part to Daniel and let him fix it for you. I'm sure there is something you two could work out for trade to do this!

That would be fine with me Scott.  Nothing to work out....I'll just do it!

Scott, good thing I hadn't shipped you the NOS clutch just yet.  Turns out the NOS had a female receiver tube on the universal instead of a solid male shaft like you need.  Your old shaft's round adapter plate was beat out of shape, so I got it all hammered back flat & cleaned up a bit & bolted it to the NOS slip unit.  I'll ship it out next week.   This NOS slip clutch didn't have any hole drilled or tapped for an allen lock key, but right after I got it from you I took care of that.

We're mighty fine Scott.  I kinda wonder if you ended up with this NOS one because it wasn't built right from the start, so it could not be used.  Not drilled or tapped, then the tube welded on the wrong shaft end???  Your clutch likely got busted because someone used a square headed lock bolt instead of an allen set screw.  You can really torque down the square lock bolts.

  It doesn't matter what type end is on the shaft I use, as I have to build the other end of my shaft anyway, as I didn't get any part of the shaft/clutch with my tiller unfortunately.

I am running into something similar with the assisted lift spring kit. The crank will not go into the nut on the spring.....what is interesting is I have 2 more springs with nuts- the cranks will not fit them either. What I think happened is these springs actually fit the front plow. I am pretty sure I checked at some point and these nos springs fit the plows bolts/screws....where ever you call it. So I am guessing mistakes were made along the way?!

Daniel I was looking at the ST-32 manual tonight and the slip clutch in the diagram is set up like yours with the female end. Hmmmmm, maybe mine was the one that was made the wrong way!

That is a hollow square tube isn't it?  If so, I'd say you have everything correct.  With the geometry of the lift angles & such, I don't think there is much extension needed in the shaft at all, but then I've not set my tiller up yet to know.  In any case, you needed the clutch set up as I did it.  Maybe I need to wait to ship it??

Let me go back and get a measurement- Daniel measure the shaft on mine and let's see if they will slide together- never checked it since it all came with the tiller

Your original shaft that is now mounted the the NOS clutch is rectangular, 3/4 x 7/8".  The tube that is welded to the NOS clutch part as it was has a perfectly square ID of 1"
