Hey everyone, I'm new. I was looking for some help at another forum and Bolens 1000 helped me out big time. Thank you Bolens 1000

Here's a pic of my 850



I thought my brakes went out since I couldn't stop the tractor or get it into gear. I put new pads on (the old ones were shot) and it didn't fix the problem.

With some help, we figured out the smaller friction disc in the clutch wasn't working. Whe I took it apart today, it turns out I smoked both of them! Hahhaha




Anways, I'm patiently waiting for the discs to show up. I have one question though, when I bake them in the oven, do I have to get the bearings out of the pulley assembly?

I got this tractor when I bought my first house 2 years ago. The owner of the house was the original owner of the tractor. I've put some new parts into it and rebuilt the carburetor. The tractor mows, tills and pushed snow for me! Great tractor!



I can't wait to get it running again and hanging out there.

Thanks,

Jeff

Hey! Nice to see you made it over to GTT! :wave:

I have only baked one set of discs. And I decided to leave the bearings in, I found out that that was a bad Idea. Started the tractor up and the bearings got toasted! it was really loud!. I'd take them out just to make shure you dont have to replace them....

Thanks for the nice welcome.

What's the best way to pop out the bearings. I've used a dowel rode slightly smaller than the diameter of the bearing and then just tapped it out with a hammer.

Any better ideas?

Thanks again,

jeff

The way you both do it is the best way to remove the bearings.
