This is really "taking the long road" to get to the clutch. Start at Radiator & rear tail light and disassemble until you get to the clutch!

:lol:

I have to unhook the wiring harness either at the dash or from the front to split it, I have a new wiring harness and you have to pull the water pump off because it's tucked up behind it so I figured since I had a couple small water leaks and want to replace the hoses may as well start at the front and work my way back.

I had to re-split my 140 yesterday (just made a post about it). It took me exactly 55 minutes to split the tractor from start to finish working by myself. :{_}: I feel like that is a pretty good pace. That includes removing battery, draining fuel line, draining hydraulics, and actually pulling both halves apart. If I keep going like I did on this clutch, I'll be able to split one blindfolded in record time!! :lol: :oops:

Clutch is as bad as I’ve ever seen. Luckily the flywheel isn’t grooved like the pressure plate.

I talked to Norman’s son, he said this is the original clutch.

Golly Shane. You got in there in the niche of time. I guess the original clutch unit was made to last. With all that wear, the splines look crisp and not wallowed out.

Shane, I assume you'll be re-surfacing that flywheel? Be sure to remove the same amount of material from the mounting face as you remove from the friction surface.

Starting putting new wiring harness from brillman in today. It’s a wonder this tractor was even charging. I haven’t turned the lights on since owning it for fear of a melt down.

The brillman harness is nice. The only complaint I have this far is it had two terminals for threaded studs or bolts on the ignition switch wires and I had to change them to a spade type. No big deal though.

Cleaned the gas bowl today. Oven cleaner is the only thing I’ve found that works. It works great on glass light lenses as well.
