Brand new to the forum but a great source for information. You guys know you stuff.
I inherited a Snapper 1855 a few years ago and have had very few issues other than general maintenance stuff. Great tractor. I primarily use the tractor with a dirt scoop for yard work etc but also for blowing snow. This year after mounting the blower and engaging the electric PTO I noticed that there was a lot of slop in the front pulley causing the clutch / electromagnet to not engage. It appears that there was a bushing in front of the armature that may have worn out causing this loose fit. I attached a photo looking down at the armature and shaft. The bearing appears fine but has a lot of slop on the shaft.
1. Can I source just the armature and bushing?
2. Does anyone know where I can source a new or used electric PTO clutch complete?
Thanks in advance for everyone's help. It is appreciated.
