My left side clutch inner turns inside the out so I'm guessing that either the teeth are off the plates or the hub is flogged out


Not an expert but I do know you're gonna have to tear it apart to find out

Not only am I going to have to, : ) but I made a lot of progress yesterday. Got the split master pin out, pulled the track outside with the lawnmower, took about an hour to get the track frame off as the inside was dry dirt, and the sprocket was loose. Now it's time to weld some heads on to the rusted out bolts and see if I can get the final drive assembly loose

Cheers,

Good luck on your final drives. Seems I have another one to tear down also. The 5u I just got had a broken brake pedal on the left so they used the right side for turning both directions. Left side is stuck and the right side is past totally wore out.

Sounds like mine Gary. My left side brake pedal shaft was broken, and the brake band itself is broken. Just about every bolt on this unit is seized so I've been getting plenty of practice at extracting them : ) My wish list would be a drill, mag or something with a ten-way adjustable mounting block that can center and align into any angle and position and can take 1/8 twist drills up through 3/4" annular cutters (that need no lube or coolant) - ah dreams.....
I'm guessing the teeth being missing is a combination of wear on the brake hub splines and the plate teeth, and/or the plate teeth and the inner hub splines. Either way, all of those parts will be replaced with new, that's no problem. The bigger problem is my track frames are very flimsy from being rusted out - previous owner obviously never cleaned the track gear at the end of the day - so I need to find a wreck that is 5U13273 and up for the correct length.

My 5j track frames are pretty bad, but I have another 5j for parts and it will probably be track frames springs and idler
I considered building my own but the bronze bushing in the axle worried me. A friend is a metal fabricator and he said no problem. So might be an opinion for you

Winter projects all lined up. All you youngsters take note it's all fun and games to visit uncle Joe or gramps with a cat, but addiction is just a small step away.

Darn. A video of the lawnmower pulling the track outside would have been cool.

Been working on getting my parts tractor disassembled.
Not much of a fight with anything, actually pulled the sprockets off by hand.
So far I've got the track frames, sprockets, water pump, radiator, oil fill tube, equalizer spring, and engine front cover for my 5j. The clutches will be going in the 5u
