Yesterday, I used a friend's press to re-assemble my clutch. I used the sequence from a picture I took upon getting the tractor. My friend suggested that I had it backwards....So, I am including pics of how it was when I got it and how we decided to put it together. As a fail safe mechanism, I decided to ask about the sequence for verification. There are two (2) disc pieces, one with a solid collar(310-10443) and one with a split collar(310-10444). As seen in the picture of the broken throwout bearing; the split collar disc is nearest to the clutch yoke. I am also including the pics of the completed re-assembly. All suggestions, advice and verifications welcome. Also, how does the Drive disc get centered, since it is just pressed between the two(2) disc assembly pieces. Thanks. ken

Download the manual from our Manuals Section and look it up. Good Luck, Rick

boyscout862: I forgot to mention the obvious; I have the manuals from multiple years and none of them have a picture or describe exactly where the discs should be placed except the one picture that has the assembly parts listed by number that I cross-referenced to the clutch assembly parts list. That is how I have it put together. I was just seeking verification. ken

Good to see you are making progress! Looks like everything is assembled correctly, the grooved plate has to be adjacent to the spring for the clutch disc to release.

The drive pins center the fiber disc, make sure that the right angle box is in line with the engine before you tighten it down. Keep the pics coming!

Many thanks, MolonLabe. Just wanted verification. Now a bigger decision; do I drop and open transaxle. Gut tells me yes as the shift lever is loosey-goosey when placed in the Reverse-second-First gear positions.  Peerless 2315A. Thanks, again. ken

You might want to post that question in the http://gardentractor...-tractor-forum/

Lots of other makes used the 2300 series transaxles so I'm sure you would get plenty of responses there. Good luck!
