 Stripped bolts in clutch case TC24DA

I always had problems keeping the bolts tight that held the frame for the mid mount mower (914A) to the clutch case and finally the mounting points cracked.Dose anyone have a idea what this might cost to repair? I already tried Helicoils and they pulled out.It ,the clutch case,would have to be welded or replaced I think

Or you could get a rear mower and sell the mid.

I'm not familliar with your tractor, but I assume the housing is either cast iron or cast aluminum. If the cracks are accessable with a welder then perhaps it can be repaired. Both can be welded, but it takes a better welder than me to do aluminuim. Frank.

Kevin, it sound like you're putting the cart before the horse.

You better find out why the bolts wouldn't stay tight and what caused the cracks before you worry about fixing it.

If all you do is fix it without solving the problem that caused the damage in the first place it will just happen again.


Best of luck.

I am pretty sure bumping into trees and the occasional rock growing out of the lawn is the reason it broke! I thought about the rear mower suggestion but I want to investigate all my options first.

I'd be more than surprised if the odd bump from a rock or root did any damage at all to it.

Don't forget, the mower hangs down on linkage, there's lots of room for movement in the whole thing before it gets to the point of putting much stress on the mounts.

Also, unless I'm missing something, you said it's the mounts in the clutch housing that broke. If the damage was from stress caused by bumping into things it would show up first in the front mounts, not the back ones.

That is unless you cut the grass in reverse. Wink yeah right


Best of luck.

I think you'd have to drain and preferably remove the housing before welding.

I believe the housing is dry inside.The front bolt holes are cracked from the deck rotating on the loose bolts

If the maker or a dealer won't specify what it's made of, it's likely cast but a magnet will tell if it's aluminum. Bring photos to a specialty welding shop for an opinion.

You're going to have to have it repaired or replaced anyway so you might as well take it apart and get it off the machine.

A picture might help, but no one will be able to accurately determine if they can fix it just by a picture--if they do they'll likely either give you a cheap quote (and later inflate it) or double it just be sure they're covered. A good repairman doesn't quote off a picture.

If it can be welded whether aluminum or iron it will have to be evenly heated in an oven or by open flame so it will have to be stripped of any parts and off the machine.

A few years ago on TV there was a specialty aluminum rod that required only a propane torch. Never used it myself but looks like it may do the trick. Anyone used this product?
