Clutch trouble.

Postby Greg » Fri Apr 09, 2004 7:16 am

I rebuilt a cub (thanks for all the help) and put in a new Bates throwout bearing. I also adjusted pressure plate fingers to specs. It is running great, but after about 4hrs of use, the clutch stopped working. When I look at it, it looks as if the side yokes (of throwout bearing) are hitting the pressure plate fingers when I depress the clutch. Any thoughts on what I did wrong?

I think you put the throwout bearing yoke on backwards. Others may have some other ideas.

Greg, I saw your comment on the ATIS bbs, and I think you may have gotten a faulty one. I've never installed one, but the ones I 've seen extended out the engine side of the case just as the original graphite block did.

you are part of the problem!!!

I received a response off-line from a helpful chap. He had 2 Bates bearings do the same thing. Anyone else have this problem? Should I go to the old graphite bearing?

If you go back to the graphite, get one form your Case/IH/CNH dealer, not an aftermarket one. I decided to save a little money by buying an aftermarket one a few years ago and went through 3 of them in 14 months. When I bought one from my dealer, everything was ok.
