busted clutch bearing
« on: 01 Sep 2023 at 13:17 »
This looks like a difficult part to replace  or make since my clutch does not engage I guess it is the bearing that it pushes against
 this is all I have found so far  :wink:It is from my 1926 350 EW. Is it a part that is common to many models? is there a work around? does any one have one?

Hi TCK,

I've used this needle roller thrust bearing from Simply Bearings on my M32, so search for this and see if it's the business.
NTA2840 Needle Roller Cage Thrust Assembly with 2 TRA2840 Washers 1.75x2.5x0.1406 inch. Other sizes are available.

I needed to make up a bit of space, and found that, of all things, digger bucket shims come in different thicknesses, so with a selection of those a solution can be made up.

Cheers for now
Doug

Thanks Doug I will investigate
I must say turning a ring seemed doable but the thought of drilling all those radial holes......:-)

Hi I replaced mine with an oilite washer which I bought from   getyourbearings.co.uk/oilite-washer/aw234002.html
