I put this here because it is for the Bolens and troy built GTX series tractors. We have some of the new electric clutches in now. These are the complete clutches not just the field coils.

The gap for the clutch should be between .010-.015 with the clutch in the off postion.

I realize this is a very old post but Bob recently sent me a 1744401 clutch for my GTX18 and the old girl is back in business.  Kudos to Bob for the outstanding service too.....ordered the clutch on Monday and had it in my hands Thursday evening. 

 

I'm new to this site and stumbled on it looking for the clutch.  My fleet:

'47 Farmall "A" (w/72" Woods underdeck mower)

'94 Troy-Bilt GTX18 (48" mower deck)

'95 Ingersoll 4020PS (60" mower deck, 48" snow thrower & winter cab)

Welcome to GTTalk.  Don't know if you remember but I've PM'd you at BITOG as I also have a GTX-18.  I haven't been real active over there lately but I just saw your PTO clutch thread yesterday and was going to respond today.

 

My clutch went out immediately after I bought the tractor.  I found a resistance measurement for the coil somewhere and mine was about 1/2 what it should be.  At the time, Bob had just the field coil part of the clutch so I was able to get off a little bit cheaper.  I replaced that, set the gap and it's worked fine ever since.  I believe that was in 2010.  There's a member on another GT forum that has had luck replacing and re-potting the windings in the coil case.

I have a TroyBilt GTX 18. It was originally purchased in 1996 by a friend of mine in St Louis... I bought it from him 7 or 8 years ago.  It is still going strong but I have gotten really good at fixin' it.  It must be the only one in Texas! 

 

The Field Coil went out this weekend.  I have seen places that will rebuild the coil but how can I tell if the whole clutch assembly should be replaced? I assume the 1744401 comes with the field coil correct? Any 1744401 assemblies available anywhere?  Is the Ogura OR-26 any good?

 

Sorry for all the questions.

 

~Mike
