Just started taking my Kohler motor apart to replace the governor cross shaft and looking at the pto looks like there is a friction disk that is brittle and falling off.Is it bonded to the wires?What do you guys recomend?
Thanks,Bob

:sorry1: Just re-read my post and it is confusing.I was talking about the electric pto implement clutch on the front of the motor.I took it off when I was pulling the motor to do other work.The rear half of the pto,the one that the switch wire is connected to,has what looks like a friction disk and that is what was brittle and breaking off.
Digital camera? I just asked a ? about a 35 year old tractor:)
Thanks,Bob

The electromagnet part has no disc attached, but has a metal disc that rides just above & around the electromagnet part. The electromagnet transfers the magnetism through the air to the first disc. When the magnet is energized & magnetizes this disc, it attracts the front metal disc to it & engages the drive. I cannot see these discs chipping off, but then there's always something new to see. That's why I was wondering if you could post a pic to be sure.
Now the electromagnet itself....the coil pack of wires is sealed in an epoxy & I have seen this epoxy crack & chip out. I had one that chipped out so bad that I refilled with epoxy glue because the coil assembly was becoming loose in the metal backing. Maybe this is what is chipping?

You're right Olcow,It is the epoxy.Almost all of it is lose.What did you use to re-epoxy it?
Bob
2-part high strength epoxy in the syringe style tubes, Walmart or most any auto store will have it. Mix well, then work into the cracks/crevices. Oh...clean all GOOD first. Scrub with dishwash liquid water & a brush & let dry, then epoxy.
