I am trying to install a new transmission on my Power King, As I was trying to get the front of the transmission into the clutch I noticed a small piece of rubber with a metal ring around it jammed into the hole.
I looked it up in the parts diagram and it appears to be a "snap ring" that goes on the engine side of the clutch bushing.
It looks to me that the only way to get it on again is to take the clutch apart, put the clutch plate and bushings on the transmission then put the whole assembly back into the bell housing.
That seems like a lot, since Im not really sure what it does.
What is the snap ring for, and is it worth the trouble of disassembling the clutch?
