    Default Splitting a Cat Ten

    I'm about to take the engine out of my Ten to replace the main clutch throwout bearing, but I have a question - the illustrations in the parts book make it look like the 6 nuts & springs have to be removed from the flywheel studs where they pass through the pressure plate, and if I do that I assume the engine can then be removed and the pressure plate and clutch disc will stay on the input shaft? If that's the way it's supposed to go then it looks like I can leave the clutch throwout collar and fork in place for now. Am I on the right track?

    You are correct. Remove the 6 nuts and springs, then split the cases. On the bell housing ,There are a couple alignment dowels on there too that may stick some.

    great job on the video toby!,

    when you were pulling the main spring assembly out I noticed that you have the exact same shop floor that i have! the best part about that type of floor is it makes great fire starter if you get it soaked in oil. LOL

    keep up the good work.

    Excelent Video !!!
    thanks! good tips for other people who have to do a similar job in the future!!
    The brake springs can also use new leater boots, same like the you mentioned the boots on the eq. spring covers. John Hanh is a perfect suplier for the seats and other leather produkts ( if he is still in the bussines).

    Becky Finally watched whole video

    That's how mine come apart pretty much except I left the clutch on the flywheel. Pretty sure because I have a short section of shaft to align the clutch and pressure plate before installing. With the clutch actuator piece removed you can tilt it forward to accept the throwout bearing.

    Progress on this project has been slow with all the distractions I've had lately, but here's another video - installing the new release bearing and also the work I did inside the bell housing in preparation for putting the tractor back together.

    Perfect timing! I am facing the exact same operation on my Ten. Can you tell your source and part number for the clutch release bearing?
    There were lots of important details that I would probably have missed.
    Thanks very much,
