I just finished a job for a Gentelman that had that same feeling when he saved $150 on that gereric pto clutch.

That feeling was quickly trumped when the local dealer called him and said he needed a new crankshaft. The top bearing seizes up on about half of thoes awesome clutches. Others have experienced zero issues..

Im all for saving money. I try and steer clear of dealership parts. I was also just trying to save you the headache. For some reason maybe you thought i was trying to say deere parts are gold or something?

I've got a couple hundred hours on it since then. I wonder what causes the issue really with the generics some of the time. Maybe the company I got mine from actually knows what they're doing.

Who knows, it could be the people installing them. The biggest thing ive found is they just are a pita to remove. I would always look at the brand/type as soon as i was fighting one. Either the clutch would pull away from the bearing leaving just IT on the crank. Or the bearing would come apart and leave the race on the crank. If they come off easy then you get nervous. Thats when you see the top bearing spun on the crank snout... Just dosent happen with an oem Warner or Ogura.


The extreme is the better of the 2-3 ive seen. I cant member the names off hand as i dont work on mowers much anymore.

A hellcat style ram srt would be a fun whip, with a manual or even those paddle shifters. But as mentioned, an NA V10 manual truck is rarity, not just all about the performance numbers
