Hi There was wondering if any one knows what company manufacture the rear pto clutch assembly for the Ariens GT line. I am in process of replacing the bearing in the rear pto however, the nachi 6206r6ds bearing is not available thru NACHI the maker. Furthermore I called Nachi the rep. told me the bearing is so old that the records are long gone My question is. How hot does the rear clutch coil get while in operation. This r6ds bearing is located on the inside of clutch and next to coil. The bearing NACHI recommended ( but the company was not sure of the operating temp of the electric clutch. the size is the same between both bearing numbers.) was the 6206-2nse9 c3 However the max operating temperature for that bearing is 160 degrees F. I have already sourced out the other three bearings installed on the rear pto.. Thanks MUSTANGMAN

there are bearing application guides online, the 6206 is the important part, the rest tells specifics about "that" bearing... tighter clearance version, open one side, or both, sealed one side or both, groove on outer race (or not) things like that. SKF, Nice, Browning, Timken and many others out there I'm sure you could cross that number into any of those brnds maybe more.
GLGrumpy just had a thread on a PTO clutch bearing, might be same number? I know that bearing number sounds very familiar from things I have worked on before... check EPay... just punch in "6206" without all the extra letters and see what comes up.

My concern is the grease used inside the bearing. if the grease is not rated for the heat I would think it would dissolve and the bearing would fail.

I would think something like that would not get as hot as an electric motor would. also if it is a sealed bearing even though the lube gets thinner while running, it will harden up when done running... notice how motor oil thins when an engine is warmed up vs when the engine is cold? I think youre overthinking it. at least you HAVE a rear PTO... many are looking for them to fit these machines....

Yea I am over thinking it I do know the electric coil does get hot. But I have decided to leave the original bearing alone Thanks Mustangman
