I need to replace the clutch stop on my Cub 2130. This bolts to the block of the engine and fits into the groove at the top of the clutch. It looks like I have to remove or at least loosen the PTO clutch to fit it. The bolt is attached to the same as the drive shaft. The shaft turns while you try to loosen the bolt. Any suggestions??

To replace a transmission drive belt on a Cub Cadet LT1046 you need to remove the deck, preferably put the front wheels up on blocks or stands, unplug the PTO power (directly under the engine, which can be a pain ) You need a 5/8" socket to get the bolt out of the PTO pulley assy.(electric clutch). If you don't have an impact wrench take a spark plug out and push rope into the hole. This will bind the cylinder and keep the drive shaft from turning. Remove rope and replace plug when finished. Battery and/or spark plug wires should be removed for this process for safety.
The PTO may be stuck on there so you may want to tap it with a hammer and a block of wood carefully to release it. Loosen old belt from tensioner pulley. Lower engine pully on drive shaft, below pully "keys". It may be difficult to remove. Spray with "PB Blaster" or similar bolt loosener spray. Remove old belt from engine pulley first, transmission pulley last. Remember how belt goes around pulleys before doing so, make a diagram to help.
You'll need to put the belt on the transmission pulley first then thread the belt up to the engine pulley. Thread your belt back through the pulleys and tensioner (make sure your spring is strong enough to tension the belt or buy a new one).
The PTO pulley is "keyed" on the shaft. Replace bolt and washer. Torque bolt to 38-50 ft. lbs. using the rope meathod as described before. Put your deck back on and you're ready to mow again
First park your mower on level ground and apply the parking brake.
Remove the deck drive belt from the PTO clutch.
Remove the electric PTO clutch. This is done by disconnecting the electrical wires first. Then removing the center bolt using an impact wrench. A pull bar can used but you must prevent the engine from turning by blocking the flywheel.
Remove the tension on the drive belt idler.
Remove the drive belt from around the pulleys. Be careful as the engine may try fall off depending on if it isn't seized on yet.
Installation is the reverse of the above instructions.
After install the PTO clutch tighten the center bolt to 55 ft lbs using a torque wrench (not your impact wrench) with the flywheel blocked from moving.
the best way to get it off is with a 3/4 impact gun after you get crank bolt off unplug clutch slide it off most time it will come off but rare time you might need hammer to hit back to get it off thats what the red neck says
To replace a transmission drive belt on a Cub Cadet LT1045 or LT 1050 you need to remove the deck, preferably put the front wheels up on blocks or stands, unplug the PTO power (directly under the engine, which can be a pain ), use an impact wrench (you need the speed of the impact wrench because the engine will turn) and a 5/8" socket and reverse the bolt out of the PTO.
The PTO may be sized on there so you may want to tap it with a hammer and a block of wood carefully to release it. AT this point remove the 4 engine mount bolts from underneath (1/2" I believe). You will need to remove the left steering nut and arm to have access to the 4th bolt. Do not remove or replace engine mount bolts with impact wrench or bolts may break. Loosen old belt from tensioner pulley. Place pry bar under engine to slightly lift engine and move aft to expose belt from pulley and remove from pulley. Remove old belt from engine pulley first, transmission pulley last. Remember how belt goes around pulleys before doing so, draw a map if needed.
You'll need to put the belt on the transmission pulley first then thread the belt up to the engine pulley. Carefully push engine back into place and exhaust pipes into forward muffler will take some patience. Bolt engine back on being careful not to over tighten bolts. Place steering arm and nut back in place. Thread your belt back through the pulleys and tensioner (make sure your spring is strong enough to tension the belt or buy a new one).
The PTO is "keyed" on the shaft. Replace bolt and washer. Put your deck back on and you're ready to mow again. Give yourself an hour for this one.
The easiest way to remove one is an impact wrench; otherwise, you would block the flywheel of the engine so it won't turn and use a pull bar.
You will need block the flywheel upon installing as you will need to torque the center bolt to about 55 ft lbs and don't forget to burnish in the PTO clutch.
I really need some more info from you...but here are a few things you should check? Since it clicks with or without the belt...it has to be an electrical issue! Check the switch, look for broken wiring, or loose connections. Another thing it might cause this is the battery or the charging system! If there is not enough voltage to hold the clutch engaged or what it is getting is shorting out then that would be your culprit! I hope this helps! "Be Easy!" Neighborsboy
first start by turning ign on,then switch on the pto switch to on. you should hear a click in the clutch. if not use a twelve volt test light,hook aligator end to a good groundand the needle end,,,touch to the pto switchharness to see if you have power to the pto switch. if you don"t, you have to go checkfurther to your power source,(battery) if you do have power there check to see if you have power at the plugin at the end of your wire harness, just at the beginning of where your cluch connects up. you can test you clutch by conneting a test wire from positive on your battery to one of the terminals on your clutch and the other terminal to ground . It willengage if it is good .using either wire is ok as all it will be doing is completing a circuit. hope this helps.
