Remove PTO overrun clutch

Postby MRMNTS » Mon Apr 09, 2018 5:44 pm

Hi,
My 2210D came with a overrun clutch attached to the PTO. The grease zerkes are gone and I'm trying to figure out how to remove this thing. When I look in the holes, I see solid steel. Nothing I can punch out. How can I remove it?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Those pins tend to break and clutch moves in or out. you will probably have to force the clutch off the shaft or move it until you can see the pin in the hole. QD clutch is much better.

Thanks Alan.
I assume it is not a good idea to anchor the clutch to a tree and let the tractor pull itself away from the clutch.
I'll spend some time on it this weekend.

If the pin is, in fact, sheared rust is the only thing holding the clutch on the shaft. Penetrating oil and hammer should work

I have had to cut the outer portion off with a grinder wheel before. Then grind down & hammer out the mangled roll pin and pull the rest off with a prybar and hammer.

Pulling on a tree would not get you nearly as much force as you would get with a prybar and you would 4,000% more likely to damage something.

I shifted PTO into gear and started turning the ORC until I found the hole for the pin. I then pounded the sucker out and the ORC slid off.
All I needed was a little research and a little confidence.
Thanks everybody! I will be ordering a new QD ORC shortly :D
