I have broken apart the engine and transmission on my CAT22 so that I can install a new flywheel ring gear (see photo). I was able to remove the throwout bearing and cage, and found a new bearing (BCA 209S) on ebay for $17.95 with free shipping.
Judging from the parts manual I am assuming that to remove the flywheel I just loosen the eight nuts, 2B6309, and springs, 2B4824, so that I can get to the six bolts, T532, that hold the flywheel to the crankshaft, correct? DO I need any special spring compressor to do this, or do the springs lose all compression by the time the nuts come loose? When I reinstall the springs and nuts does anyone know what the proper torque spec is?
Does anyone know what the proper thickness is for the clutch disk, and what the minimum allowable thickness is? Who sells new clutch disks, or who can reline them?
Are there any specs on the allowable wear of the throwout bearing cage, 1A1311? Can't tell if mine needs to be replaced or not. If so, where is the best place to get one?
The lining on the clutch brake, V407, looks like it is a little chewed up, but not down to the rivets. Again, is there a wear spec, and who can reline the brake? Do I need to remove the large nut on the transmission input shaft to get the brake flange off, or are the two cap screws, T102, all that hold the brake flange in place?
Finally, I do feel some play in the transmission input shaft bearing. How much is too much, and how difficult is it to take it apart to replace the bearing. Not sure I want to go there.
Thanks for your help. Ray
