The people on here recommend soaking a new throwout bearing in light motor oil for a day, before putting it in, and grease the grease fitting with cheap grease also, so the oil in the grease absorbs into the graphite. Below is a post I wrote on, with info about replacing the clutch. So, I would appreciate some advice on where to get instructions on tearing it down and separating the tractor, and what parts I should replace and where I might get some high quality parts for it? And if I need to replace it how is it removed and then replaced? It may not need the bushing replaced, if it is good. Or is it not a common need? If the rear engine seal leaks any, while you have the Cub split is a good time to replace it. Fill it the last time, after it is working again, with the arms in the rear, or down position. This would probably work for installing a bushing too.
Contact Ron Baker, MidMo on this site. Thanks so much for the help on this Cub clutch problem. Below is a page from the Cub service manual, showing the clutch shaft size, and the running clearance in the bushing. Read the post about the pilot bushing in the info I posted above.

Then you have to clean all the grease out of the hole, before putting the new bushing in.
The clutch is in section 5. I have a 1959 model year International Cub Lo-Boy with a bad clutch. Remove the Touch Control filler plug, on the left side, before removing the drain plug, on the right side. Be the first to review this product! There can be some pressure in the system, even with the engine off. You will just have to look at yours with a light, and see if it looks good, and measure it too would be best. For tractor models Cub, Cub Lo-Boy.
But now I'm uncertain about where the grease goes. That one has a support that someone made, bolted onto the implement attaching holes. How do you rate this product? Hi, Boss Hog has said on here that clutch pilot bushings do not always need replacing, when you replace a clutch, some are still good. It shows all of the parts you would probably need, you may not need as many as are shown. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Then a custom reamer to size it after its driven in.

Hi, Below is the Cub service manual, it has lots of info, you could read it also. If you buy them, maybe you could ask first if you can return what you don't use. Dale Finch has shown pics of using a socket, turned backwards on an extension, to install new oil seals. And I would't know what parts to get before going to the CubFest. I adjusted the fingers several times and recently it still does not let pressure off the driveline to allow the transmission to be put into gear. It looks like it would require some sort of special puller, and then a custom driver of some sort.
I had the pressure plate and throw-out bearing replaced about 25 years ago when I had the engine rebuilt. Below is a page from the 1957 Cub LoBoy owner's manual, showing the clutch. The Cub owner's manual tells how to fill, and remove the air from the system. After gaining a new wife about 24 years ago and her 13 year old daughter which I determined was old enough to mow the grass with this Cub the clutch has been failing. Hi, Below is a post by Dale Finch telling about splitting a Cub. You may have to add more grease, as the bushing comes out.
Below is a pic of installing a seal. Perhaps he can schedule a tractor split and repair the clutch. The flywheel may need sanding with fine sandpaper, where the clutch disc runs on it. Join thousands of happy customers who have purchased parts and more for their antique tractor from us! I now understand that the graphite doesn't spin in its housing. Attachments What are the chances that I would have to replace the clutch pilot bushing? The info begins part way down the page.
Parts, I would get a new clutch disk and throw out bearing. Hammer on the end of the extension. The old one bearing sure doesn't spin any more. If needed, a reamer the right size would be the best, engine shops probably have them for their use. Found the graphite throwout bearing was worn down to its housing. Does it just penetrate the graphite and lube between the graphite and the pressure plate? Hi, Below is a pic of the throwout bearing and parts inside the clutch housing when you split a Cub.
Use a socket that fits well on the end of the bushing. I know the only real way to answer that is to take the Cub apart and measure the shaft and the interior of the bushing to find out and then calculate the clearance. You have to remove the flywheel to replace the seal. You can probably buy one somewhere. The housing had even started wearing out the fingers on the pressure plate.
