I have to replace a clutch disk on the bosses 900 bolens. I am getting one from a member on here. So my question is how are these installed. I understand the clutch comes all apart but how does it attach to the clutch plate?

They should always come with instructions when you buy them......

Depending on what year the discs were manufactured determined the temperature and amount of time required in the oven.

With the bearings out and clutch completely disassembled you need to clamp the clutch tight together then bake in the oven.

Often a long threaded rod can be used to tighten down the clutch.

Pick up a cheap 110v oven at a tag sale. I've used mine for 25 years now. Bakes soil samples, shaft collars, press-on bearings, and connecting rods. Good Luck, Rick
