Recently replaced the pto clutch with an aftermarket (Xtreme) one because the bearings on the old one were bad which caused the clutch bolt to first fall out, then the replacement bolt broke off in the engine shaft.
All looks good now, the mower deck pulleys and spindles spin freely and the mower works well.
However, after mowing for about 20 minutes or so, the pto clutch pulley seems to get pretty hot, almost too hot to touch.
Is that normal ? I am thinking it is due to heat from the energized clutch and partly from friction of the mower deck belt.
Thanks for any comments.
