Remove the main clutch bolt,thread in the appropriate clutch puller,tighten with an air gun,smack the end of the puller with a bfg! Make sure you obtain the right puller. you dont want to strip the threads out of the inside of the clutch or it will never come off.

Where can we find a drive belt for a 1967 Massey Ferguson Ski Whiz snowmobile. The number on the old belt is 521965M2.


Hi Brenda:
I Googled the snowmobile gurus and this was on one of their comments.

Called my massey man again. He came up with a size.1 3/16x46 which would be the same as a LMX 1036.

Hope this helps.

Keep those old toys working!

How do i remove a primary clutch on a 1973 344t massey fergusson ski-wizz snowmobile?


No, it does not thread on. You just need a large 3 jaw puller. It is pressed on. Pretty easy to pull off with a puller and a socket. Depending on the clearance you have between the outer surface of the clutch and the side of the belly pan, you may need to unbolt the engine and lift it to gain clearance.

How do I fix a clutch on Massey Ferguson 165 1979 tractor. I need a manual to do repair on farm


This is easy. If you live on a farm i assume you have some mechanic abilities. the tractor needs to be split in half. I have done these tractors in as little as 4 hrs. The easy way to seperate the tractor is to sleightly jack up the middle of the tractor,put a jack stand under the front of the transmision. Now move the floor jack forward to the rear of the engine. take roughly half of the weight off of the jack stand. this will allow you to roll the front half of the tractor away from the rear once you remove the trans.bolts,hydro.lines and brake rods.

I know where to add the oil and transmission fluid but how do i drain and add my primary chain fluid


On the underside of the primary all the way to the rear of the primary just under the clutch area is a pipe plug. Remove the plug to drain the oil. To refill the primary, remove the round derby cover from the primary over the clutch. Stand the bike straight up and fill the primary with 20W50 engine oil until the level just comes to the bottom of the clutch drum. Do not overfill or the clutch will drag.

Good Luck

Removal motorsprocket


I'm going to assume that you are talking about how to remove the engine sprocket from the sprocket shaft in the primary cover.

First, disconnect the battery and drain the primary. Look underneath the primary and loosen the locknut for the primary chain adjuster and loosen the primary chain by turning the screw outwards a few turns.

Then take the derby cover off the primary and remove the spring and locknut for the clutch adjustment. Remove the screws from around the primary and break it loose from the engine. Turn the clutch adjustment screw clockwise while removing the primary cover. Lay the primary cover aside.

Now, there is a plate in the center of the clutch assembly held in with a circlip. Remove the circlip. Now you'll need either an air wrench or a locking bar to lock the primary to prevent it from turning so you can get the clutch hub nut and the engine sprocket nut off. The engine nut has right hand threads and comes off normally. The clutch hub nut has LEFT HANDED THREADS and you must turn it in reverse. Once you get the two nuts off, you can usually grab the engine sprocket and the clutch assembly and lift those two units and the chain off at once. Sometimes you may need a puller to get the engine sprocket off but usually it just comes right off.

Installation is the reverse with the engine nut being torques to 150 foot pounds and the clutch hub nut torqued to 60 foot pounds left handed.

Good Luck

How do i change my clutch and plates


Harley changed their clutch in 1998 and I don't think they've changed it since. To change the plates in your clutch:

First, disconnect your battery, Remove the floorboard on the primary side and drain the oil out of the primary. Remove the outer primary cover. Remove the six screws in the clutch assembly and remove the clutch plates and steel plates. Soak your new clutch plates in oil overnight. Replace the old parts with the new parts in the exact same order. Rinstall the bolts using Loctite 242 (medium strength blue) and torque the bolts to about 20 foot pounds. Adjust the clutch according to factory specs and reinstall the outer primary cover. Add oil and reconnect the battery. Put the floor board back on and you're ready to ride.

Ride Safe.

Removing primary cover on 04 1200c


To remove the primary cover from you Sporty, you'll have to remove the shifter and foot peg. Then loosen the locknut for the primary chain adjuster and turn the adjuster downwards to loosen the primary chain. Then remove the plug at the bottom rear of the plug to drain the oil from the primary. Remove the clutch release mechanism cover from the outer primary. Remove the spring and locknut. Turn the clutch adjuster screw as far clockwise as you can turn it. Then remove all the bolts around the outside of the cover. While pulling the outer cover gently away from the engine, turn the clutch adjuster screw clockwise until the cover comes off.

Good Luck

Removal and installation of 1988 harley sportster clutch


In order to remove the clutch from your bike, you must have a special tool. You'll need H-D #34761 in order to remove the snap ring holding the clutch together.

Disconnect the battery, drain the primary, and remove the primary cover. Once you have the primary cover off, you can remove the nut from the compensator sprocket at the engine end of the primary chain.

Install the H-D 34761 or equivalent tool and compress the clutch spring. Remove the snap ring and then back off on the tool to release the pressure on the clutch spring. Once the pressure has been removed, remove the adjusting screw assembly, the outer clutch spring seats, the clutch spring, the inner clutch spring seat, and the pressure plate.

Then you can disassemble the rest of the clutch. Remove the remove the four friction plates and three drive plates. Then you can remove the spring plate and the remaining plates after that. Remove the snap ring that holds the clutch assembly onto the transmission clutch gear and remove the inner and outer clutch shells, the primary chain, and the engine sprocket as a group.

For this job, I would recommend that you purchase a service manual. It's has pictures that show you what you're dealing with and in this case, a picture is truly worth a thousand words.

Good Luck

Whats it take to install a clutch hub for a 1988 police bike flhpt


To install a clutch is not what I call an easy job but not an extremely difficult job either. You are going to need some special tools however.

The tools you'll need are an impact wrench, a large socket to fit the compensator nut and one to fit the mainshaft nut, a primary locking bar, torque wrenches that will torque to 150 foot pounds and 70 foot pounds in the left handed direction, and a special tool required to disassemble the clutch assembly.

First, disconnect the battery, then drain the primary and remove the outer primary cover. Use the impact wrench and appropiate socket to remove the compensator sprocket nut from the engine shaft. Remove the snap ring holding the release plate in the center of the clutch assembly and remove the LEFT HANDED THREADED mainshaft nut. Take the nut off the chain tensioner and remove the primary drive (engine sprocket, adjuster, and clutch assembly) as a unit.

Now, using the special tool, compress the clutch spring and remove the lock ring holding the clutch assembly together. Disassemble the clutch and reassemble it with the new clutch hub. Reinstall the primary drive. Apply one line of Loctite 271 inside the mainshaft nut and torque it to 70-80 foot pounds LEFT HANDED. Apply two lines of Loctite 271 (red) to the compensator nut and torque it to 150-165 foot pounds. This is what the locking bar is for, to keep the engine from turning while applying the torque to these two nut. Adjust the primary chain and reinstallt the outer primary. Add about one quart of lubricant to the primary. Reconnect the battery. Adjsut the clutch and cable.

Good Luck

Need 2 replace clutch on my 2001 softail duece


Remove the outer primary cover on left side. Don't forget to drain the oil first. Using a large pair of snap ring pliers, remove the clutch adjuster plate from center of clutch assembly. Remove compensator sprocket nut (very tight) and the clutch hub nut (left handed threads) and remove nut from bolt on primary chain adjuster. Grab the compensator sprocket and clutch assembly and lift out of inner primary.
