I have a 214 w/K321 with an electric PTO that needs to be rewired. I got it off but have no idea how to get it apart. Anyone know if there things can be taken apart without breaking them? At the cost to replace I might just tighten it down to engage. I am only using this tractor for snowplowing now and tilling in the spring. Thanks.

Is the windings bad, or the wires going into the clutch?

can you take a picture of it, I want to made sure I know which one you have. Some can be taken apart, some are sealed. They can also be repaired, but it takes a lot of care.

I was told they just pry apart originally...that did not work. Found out that person assumed it was the same as their 110 electric pto. I don't think I hurt it but...Theses are the only pics I have. I just put it back on, had to use the tractor for snowplowing. Thanks.

I have repaired them broken off like that, but it is tedious & tricky. You have to dig around the broken off wire down in that hold to expose enough of it to solder the wire back onto it. Once you have a good soldered repair, then some epoxy glue to fill around the repair & insulate the connection from the metal casing. More than likely the other side where the coil lies will be encased in some sort of sealant, so repairing this connection through this little hole is about your only option, short of a used clutch or new clutch, which is expensive!!!!!!

Daniel, I've done the same thing. I used a die grinder to enlarge the hole some.

It's tedious, but if done well, it will last a long long time. The last one I did was for my FIL when he owned the Allis 416 that I used to have. Must have been 12yrs ago that I repaired it. My BIL, member meangreen has the Allis now & the clutch is still working great to this day!

Wow, I figured you meant it was a temporary fix. That is awesome.

When I soldered my wire back on, first I did take and cut a thin piece if a tin can & made a tiny tube out of it to slide over the overlapped broken ends before soldering. This gives the joint a lot more strength. If there is enough room, you could cut off an end to a small electrical squeeze connector & use that instead. It doesn't have to be crimped at all, just slid over the overlapped ends, as it just gives the solder a solid home. If you attempted to crimp it, you could break the wire off again.
