Hello,
I am working on restoring a Case 444 that my Grandfather bought new in 1972 and has served us proud over all that time.

I have to replace the PTO friction disc and putting in new replacement shims. Sadly, i am stuck at removing the fan bolt. I have used a lot of penetrating oil, but the lefty loose is not working. i actually get the entire kohler engine to shift.

Any super secrets on a bolt probably not touched since 1986?

Thanks,
Paul

It's amazing the emotional change in 5 seconds. Bolt turns, fan off, ... Notice bolt broke :(.

I have tried to follow the manual, but any help on how to remove the 2 Allen bolts and what ever is next is greatly appreciated.

Too late for your broken bolt but the shim adjust fan bolt is a left-hand thread bolt. Once you get the broken piece out of your shaft or source a new-used shaft the bolt is likely available from a dealer. Looking for a new-used shaft may be your easy way out.

There are many documents available with a simple internet search. Your owner's manual, the shim adjust clutch manual is pretty easy to find and download. The shim adjust manual would have noted the bolt is a left-hand thread. You can search the library files through the forum, but that is what Google does, and does it better.
