Curious as to what size your control rod is and what you used for the bushing it slides through ? I used 5/8" rod but couldnt find any tubing that I could slide it through without being somewhat sloppy.

I use 1/2" iron pipe for the pin, but I run a 41/64" (just over 5/8") through it, You do not want to 'pin' that plow so it can't s
swing. Let it have a little movement (swing). It will center up when it goes in the ground.

  

You have a nice tractor and the hitch came out good too . You might want to start a thread in the Tilling and Plowing forum for setting the plow correctly . That plow on a walkbehind will swing side to side out of the ground but if set up correctly will plow straight behind . My garden is on a slight slope so I made stops so when I got to the end and turned the plow it wouldn't swing so far . Others with sleeve hitches might have some good ideas for you.


Aw ok. So it does need to have some swing. Ill check that subforum. Thank you!

Hey Captaindemo, I used a 1/2in sch40 pipe. The id should be close to 5/8". Like Kenny said, if you can find a 41/64 bit. Run it through or use a 5/8 bit and wiggle it around on both side so it stays uniform until the rod can slide through. Which is what I did since thats what I had on hand. It doesnt take much since the original hole is almost the right size.

Thanks for looking and your help guys!

I don't think it needs to swing but maybe members that have done a lot of plowing will be of some help

Yes, sleeve hitch plows do need some swing. If you do take all the swing out, how would you know if the plow is straight behind the tractor? A plow will find that by itself. You just need to limit the swing so it stays close to centered. 

Another issue with locking it is it won't drive down the furrow straight, tries to turn the tractor left or right.

Ok, So I've been messing with it and reading up on plowing. I do need to make a bracket to keep it from swinging all the way to the left or right but I think I am on the right track.

 

Thank you guys!

 

I also went and order some things. First! Thank you Bolens1000 for your fast shipping!

Just a good rule of thumb that I should have known, install the new throttle cable and measure it that way, I used what was on there which was also a replacement and because I never really payed attention didn't realize that it was a little to short but... it still works! Just have about 1/4" less travel.

 

And second! Got some clutch liners from Samsbolens. Fast shipping from them too!

Now, I have searched a bit but nobody explains how to remove the remaining old clutch liner. Could someone explain or point me in the right direction? Also, these liners seem a little on the thin side compared to what the old pad used to look like from my google search. I hope I wont have to replace them again in like 3 months.

 

Thanks for looking!

GhoSt!

The OEM discs were about 1/8'' thick  I believe

The originals  were made of asbestos so a wire wheel to remove them is not the best option, A cold chisel usually is good to break the discs free then all you have to do is clean up the glue residue.

Oh ok and thank you! Working pretty good!

 

Here are the pics of the clutch taken apart. At first I thought it was stuck so I was pounding away with a mallet and a 1x2. Turns out all I had to do was unscrew the one side that has the threads lol :wallbanging:

I do have a question, if you look at the brake plate, it wore out uneven. Although its not much, there is a groove on the side that looks cleaner. Would that be an issue or is it safe to use it like that?

 

I will also be replace some bearings. The needle bearing are good but since I am going to press them out, might as well replace them. And the bearing on the press plate stops almost as soon as I spin it so Ill be replacing that one as well.

 

Thanks for looking,

The plate dosent look too bad the main thing is getting the surface flat so the adhesive sticks to it.

I guess you were right about the discs being wore out!

 

If you have trouble sourcing the bearings local I stock all of those if needed.

What I did was to chisel the remaining liner off and make sure I was not getting the chisel into the metal. Then I ended up using a hand style sandblaster and going over the area where the disks would be mounted. The blaster cleaned the remaining clutch disk off and also at the same time giving me a nice rough area for the glue to stick to once you bake the new ones on.

Hey Bolens,

 

I did source out some bearings but I will be getting the ones I didn't from you. Thank you!

 

 

Nice work! :-)

 

Coming from you and what you are doing with your Bolens, I have to say thank you! Your tractor looks really stout with its new tires and spacers!

I am chiseling off the liner but I have no access to a sandblaster. :( Was thinking of hitting it with a wire brush afterwards. Hopefully that's not to aggressive on the surfaces. Thank you for the tip!

Hey Guys,

 

I am going over what I need for the clutch since I have it removed and as I was looking under the tractor to see why the brake lever doesn't return back, I noticed I was missing the torsion spring. Does anybody have one to spare that they are willing to let go?

 

Ref. No.    Part No.    Description

 272           1721253   Torsion Spring

 

 

 

Thanks in advance,

GhoSt

No sir, not under the part number. Do you think its listed under another? I tried searching it under torsion spring and nothing either.
