Usually replacing a clutch on a tractor involves splitting the tractor - a big job. To do it you'd need to have or make the necessary support jigs to separate the two halves and put them back together.

Thanks, I looked at it a little bit yesterday and came to the same conclusion. Looks like a time consuming task.

If you have all the parts and tools (including the supports mentioned) at hand, and know what you're doing, it can be done in a day, but it would be a long day!

Best of luck.

The parts and the tools are not a problem but the supports would have to be made first. I have access to a automotive lift. I think the way to go for me is to fabricate some attachments to the lift to hold both parts of the tractor. Either way not a job that I will tackle until it cools off some here in south Texas. Only problem I have now with the tractor is shreding, it still has enough to rake with. Thanks.

The problem is you will need to not just disconnect them, but physically move them apart.

While you can do it by just spreading them a few inches it's a PITA to do it that way. It is FAR easier if you can move them far enough apart to physically get yourself between the two halves to do the work.

Most jigs I've seen for doing it are made by making a short track (like a train track) and one rolling stand to move the rear end back away from the front end that stays stationary.

The problem is not just one of getting the old parts out and the new parts in. The clutch has a lot of friction material on it and there is usually a lot of debris to be cleaned out of there also.

Best of luck.

Thanks, Murf. I've replaced auto clutches before but not a tractor. Debris can't be as bad as the Kawaski I rebuilt. It had a rotary valve intake and it blew up. Bits of fiber were stuck to everything in the engine.
Made me think twice about 2 cycle engines.
