I need to replace my clutch cover bushing and can't find a part number for the bushing only. All I can find is the whole cover assembly.

Anyone know if I can order the bushing only? If so, what's the part #?

Thanks

Also, if I have to replace the whole cover, how do you deal with the balancing?

Jump,

Unfortunantly, you can't purchase the bushing separate. You must buy the entire cover. The old cover will make a nice wall hanging!

As for the balancing, the covers are balanced separately, so just line up the marks, and you will be good to go.

Thanks - that's what I thought. Luckily, I have an extra one from a different clutch.

If they're balanced separately, what's the purpose of lining up the marks? I can see if it was balanced as a system, then absolutely you would need to line the marks up. Just cusious.....

We always change ours. Just use a hacksaw blade to split the bushing and then pick it out. The newer sleds dont have a P/N listed for the bushing but if you search some older sleds on browns you should find one. Even better would be going to a dealer and matching it up. Finding one can be a pain, you may have to use one thats slightly shorter.

EDIT: Just had a look on browns. The p/n is 0646-262. Used on the 98's. Should work as far I know. :div20:

It won't work, the O.D is smaller. I have Garlock bushings (the one's Cat used to use on the old 9 post) and they won't fit the new Fcat clutch. I have to find out who the suppler of the new bushings is. :banghead:

There used to be a number floating around that I got from ZR900, but when ordered, it wasn't even close to a valid number. I have never found a bushing that will work. Some of the comet bushings are close, but not close enough. If you use a narrower one, the cover won't slide straight on the shaft, and it will bind. As we all know, binding = lost efficiency = less power. Its a pain to pay $40 for a bushing, but they kind of have us bent over a barrel.

That's why I would like to find out who makes these bushings for Cat now. Have to do some investigative work, LOL! :fluffy:
