Default Help please with a mower slipper clutch assembly.

This is the slipper clutch setup from my OLD Ford 5' rotary mower. How do I get this apart from here to get to the discs? The first picture is from the front and the second from the back. Couldn't find any help on Youtube.

I'm no mower mechanic, so take this for what it's worth (probably not much)!

I think the plate is supposed to just slide off the spline. I'm guessing they might just be rusted/corroded together. Might try soaking in some penetrating oil.

Yea, you might be right. I have some PB Blaster. I'll soak it down well and see what happens. Thanks for the response.

Guzzi,

Can you change a few things so your mower can run without the clutch? They can be aggravating. Used to have one of those, it tended to slip and overheat in the real thick grass. May have been undersized. Ended up removing it and using the shear pin bolt for protection. Good luck!

Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.

It appears that Spruce was right. I don't have it apart yet but have been able to move the rusted looking plate a bit by tapping all around (much clutch disc dust came out), using a very small chisel as wedge and then a punch. Currently soaking it with penetrating oil.
Thanks,
GuzziJohn

just me but if it doesn't come apart with a fair amount of effort,
i'd replace the whole thing.
last time i checked, you can get a replacement assembly or clutch
discs through agri-supply.
i know their pins and PTO hardware and 3 point stuff is way less
expensive than so-called tractor supply and these other places
even with shipping

should just be the common 1 3/8 right ?

We have a people control problem.
