Topic is Cub Cadet wide frame PTO clutch bearing removal. This one has me concerned... I have been lucky enough to get the clutch engagement mechanism removed and the PTO pulley off the bearing with minimal effort, or yanking the engine. I need to get to the generator pulley to repair it. So anyway, I need a bearing removing tool/method that fits the 4" gap between the bearing and the front of the frame. Also note I have not removed the grill, and don't want to. I feel like this has been apart before based on ease of disassembly so far.... And it's a 71 engine in a 73 tractor. Suggest away, hope to get more done on it this afternoon. Thanks.

We have an excellant manual for that in our Manuals Section. I have found that it is easier to pull the generator off the tractor than to fight with it in the tight spaces. It also usually means less blood loss when working on the bench. I'd take it off and overhaul it while it is off. Good Luck with what you decide, Rick

The starter generator pulley with the problem is the big 7 inch one one the engine crank that has the PTO clutch basket. It will most likely become a regular pulley since I'm planning to eliminate the PTO clutch.... Anyone need one?

I would take the nose and hood completely off. Then it wouldn't be that bad of a pull. Good luck. Tom

Modified a truck brake line flaring tool slightly and removed the bearing. The pulley is wallowed, so it will be replaced. As for the crank shaft, it looks ok, except for one side of the key way took a hit. It is wallowed about 1/32" ... So I will have to repair it with JB Weld very delicately when I have the patience to clean it up and paint some on the key way damage. Meanwhile im going to buy a regular pulley to use in place of the clutch. Cause of all this is the set screw above the key was gone, and it's only in there by two threads to begin with....
