Cub Cadet manual PTO Clutch

I have my Cub Cadet mod. 86, basket case back together and this morning I mowed some tall grass with it and it worked fine. However the PTO clutch wouldn't disengage when I finished and went to disengage the deck. It seems one of the clutch release fingers slipped out of the groove. When I put it back in all was fine. Does anyone know why this happens. This is the second time it did it. I thought when I took the clutch apart and adjusted it I had cured the problem but I guess not. Does the center button wear and let itself move off center? It seems like this could be it.

It could be that the spring is weak. You can get a kit from cub cadet to rebuild the clutch, It comes with a gauge to set the fingers. Make sure to get the jam nuts tight, sometimes they will back off if they are not tight. I put a drop of lock-tite on them.

The clutch doesn't slip, that isn't the problem. It seems that the center button slips to the side and lets one of the fingers out of the groove in it. Then it doesn't work. I think when I get it off this time I will look at making another that fits a little tighter so it can't move to the side and release one of the fingers. I don't know if it is heat treated yet though. I could case harden one I made and it would probably do if they are hardeded. Or make it out of a 4140 "half hard" prehardened steel. I will see when I get time to take it apart again. I know the kit has a gauge for setting it up. I feel I figured it out from the picture in the manual and some educated guesses. It worked fine except for the center button can move off center. Thanks for the reply though. Tom
