  • GEARBOX CLUTCH STOP SURFACE

    Hey Guys,
    Whats up? Has anyone ever replaced gearbox clutch stop surface with bearing retainer. I have been doing so because I have some cracked ones I can not get to stop leaking no matter what.and I don't think they can be purchased anymore. I don't see a problem with replacing them with bearing retainers, I make sure I shim them correctly, and they seem to work nicely. So has anyone else ever done It and how do you feel about It and have you had any sort of trouble because of It?
    Thanks, Mike

    Did all 16 of mine. The only thing that changed was that some gearboxes where the clutch was tricky to adjust became easy to adjust. No adverse effects whatsoever. If I still had any old ones, I'd take the old plates off as quick as I could get the new ones:

      Yes Kevin,
      I agree, definitely makes for a smoother adjustment.

      I thought you had a2's though, must be converted and had the stop surfaces.

        I have no problems with our old plates, or using the newer version retainers in its place.

        Only thing to be careful of is using the correct retainer seals. You cant use the A-2 rubber gaskets on a machine that was designed with the paper gaskets originally. Keep using the paper gaskets, and shim the new retainer, just like it was the old stop plate.

          yes,
          you are correct. use just the shims and not the rubber gasket.
