changing throwout bearing

Postby brichter » Fri Mar 27, 2020 11:27 pm

Again a large chunk is missing from my throwout bearing on the LoBoy and I am mystified why it keeps breaking them. Is it worth trying to change it without breaking the tractor or should I just bite the bullet and split it? Is it even possible to change it without splitting it?

I has to be split.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Has to be split. Everyone wish we didn't have split the tractor. Good luck.

You have to soak the bearing in oil before installing it. Some members set up a bearing or two in a can and just have them pre-soaked for when they need it.

I did switch one cub that I had problems with to an auto-style bearing. It was a cub with a loader on it. With a loader you are on the clutch more than with a cub in standard use.
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

Make sure you properly adjust the clutch fingers while you've got it apart.

Splitting the Cub is not as hard as you might think. I split mine was surprised was a piece of cake, adjusting the clutch was was more challenging.
