just replace both bearings. cut rivets and replace with bolts and red locktite. don't worry about the ring. it is actually very easy to do
The 'ring' is a thin piece of spring wire that snaps into in a groove on the outer circumference of the pulley drive assembly.I started hearing a noise like a bearing going bad and traced it to the PTO clutch, I think. In getting to the bearings I have a couple of questions.
1. Which bearing is more likely to fail the one on the Pulley Assembly or the Ball Control Plate?
2. Can the bearing in the Pulley Assembly drive be replaced individually or do you have to replace the whole assembly?
3. In looking at the parts diagrams I see a ring that fits on the PTO clutch, Honda part 75119-758-801. However, I can't find a similar ring on the Pulley Assembly. Any ideas on where it is
4. If I have to replace the Ball Control Plate bearing how does the Plate Drive come off?
Thanks in advance
Yeah they're a total PIA to deal with. It was 3 or so years ago I did the one (rebuilt it) I had so honestly don't remember how I resolved it.I recently tried changing the PTO on my 4514,no matter what ever way I put the whole lot back together I cannot get enough thread on the cable and also it seems to engage where it should be disengaged.
