Got the new flywheel / clutch / pressure plate mounted. New bolts to attach the plate to the flywheel.

Knocked out the old release bearing by suspending it btwn two pieces of lumber and struck it with a bearing driver. Tapped new one in.

I went with a double-seal output shaft housing from Georg at Valley Hybrids. Great to work with. Greased the seals before mounting it up.

Reattached the PTO cover and rear shaft cover.

The parking brake drum was slightly scored. Applied some loctite and a speedy sleeve after some measuring to cover the affected area.

This is the sleeve I used:

Curious on how that parking break drum gets scored that bad. only the seal sleeve touches it, right? perhaps rocks or brake debris?

That’s what I was thinking. Grit and grease rubbed in there over many miles.

Big day in Cleveland

I cut the heads off of some 12 x 1.25 bolts to use a guides. Chamfered the edges to help guide them in and cut a slot to make removal easier.

Used my harbor freight transmission jack to navigate the beast into position. If you happen to have the same one, I added a nut to the front to adjust with a wrench; the front/back tilt as the knob is difficult to work where it is placed. Used a ratchet strap to pull on clutch fork and center the release bearing. I was prepared to drop the back of the engine but thankfully didn't have to.

I felt like I was docking a capsule to the space station. The last 1/2" would not engage easily; I had my wife hit the clutch a few times at it went right in (thanks @Pin_Head). I thought a band might play or confetti would shoot out the tail pipe. Alas the only sound was a single tear of mine hitting the cold garage floor.
