Ha! I will of course be looking at the rear clutch LT80 as per your recommendation I am still waiting on my parts for the front cltuch.

As for the rear clutch I took the first part of it off and the shoes look good,will sand them a little as you mentioned, i did not have a socket big enough for the Large reverse thread nut so had to stop there for now until I go buy one, off chance do you remember the size i need?

I have not looked at the bearings that you mentioned as I have not got past the nut yet, but when i free hand spin it it feels very very smooth, and i can move the plate in and out with my hands, it does require quite some force though which i guess is normal?

What specifically should i be looking at other than the bearings?

I been practicing my sarcasm...how am I doing?? LMAO

You did good!
The sheaves should squeeze together smoothly and yes, there is a spring in there causing the resistance. It may need greased.
Stick your finger in the bearings and turn your finger. Any grinding and it's new bearing time.
Big nut::Older machines: 2"...newer is 2 1/8 but I'll look to make sure on that one.
That's about it on the rear.
The front clutch was err ahhh...Terrible..I'm sure that cased the problem.

You'll know if the secondary was the issue when you remove that large nut...if the spring doesn't push the movable sheave off (it should pop off) then it was frozen...I needed heat & forceful persuasion to separate mine...the result of 28 years of neglect!


Jack - how much spring tension are these under? When I service my sleds secondary I use a home made compressing tool...P80s and TRAs are under a LOT of pressure!!! Just curious for safety sake...

Frank, not much spring pressure on the stock springs. I just use my hands to assemble.
The springs I have made are 80 pounds compressed to 1". Things will fly around the garage if not careful with those.
