TD6 TD61 TD62 STEERING CLUTCHES
|In repairing the TD6 (same as TD61 and
TD62)steering clutches you have a couple of options. If your clutches are totally trashed,
or completely frozen, you will probably have to resort to cutting some of the discs out to
save the inner driving drum, the brake drum and the pressure plate. That means replacing
all of the fiber discs and probably most of the steel discs. Be careful with your
hammers! If you do accidentally break your clutch pressure plate or brake drum, we
have replacements, but try to avoid that expense. You can do a lot to clean up the
steel discs with some heavy duty cleaning, wire brushing and sandblasting. You will want a
clean smooth surface so that the steel disc surfaces will not chew up the new fiber or
bimetallic discs with their roughness.
The TD6 normally uses 12 fiber discs and 11 steel discs for each clutch. If you do not have to change all of them, and can get by with only changing a few fiber discs, then by all means just replace the bad fiber discs with more fiber discs. If you have to replace all 12 fiber discs, or at least 12 of the 24 fiber discs required for both clutches, then you should consider upgrading and improving one or both of your clutches by using bimetallic friction discs instead of the old style fiber discs.
Because of the different thickness of the discs, upgrading to the bimetallic discs requires 14 bimetallic discs and 13 steel discs per clutch. The bimetallic discs are of course a little more expensive, but you end up with a clutch less prone to having your clutch discs sticking or bonding to each other, a longer clutch life, and an increased friction surface area, resulting in a higher coefficient of friction, and no broken teeth! The bimetallic discs are not nearly as affected by moisture as the fiber discs. You can certainly expect to run your machine a lot longer without having to go into the steering clutches again!

NEW STEERING CLUTCH SHAFT NUTS........Your steering clutch shaft usually has a retaining nut that has been used several times over the decades, resulting in pulled/rolled threads and a locking ring that has been used so many times that finding a good spot on the locking ring to bend and lock is not always possible. You DO NOT want these nuts backing off or coming off of the threaded end of the shaft. Coming up with good used nuts was becoming more difficult, and very labor intensive to just get a nut, so we had these made to solve their lack of availability. 258278R1 24.00 ea.
