If you had the owners & repair manuals, you would know that they are supposed to be cleaned & repacked Every Year. Whenever it's running & the clutch is disengaged, this bearing is whirling away on your crankshaft.

My 51 B has never been rebuilt. Bearing sounds awful. The previous owners didnt know squat about this type of maintanace. I dont run it much. I just keep limping it along, with the clutch engaged while idling. Someday I'll have the time and resources to do a rebuild.

The manual also says the clutch is to be ALWAYS engaged when engine is running. Take it out of gear & engage it. Always. There are two reasons for this. First is SAFETY. If a floating disk breaks in half- and they do- it will lodge between the drive disks & engage the clutch without warning & with no way to stop. This DOES happen. The tractor takes off in whatever gear the operator has it in, VERY dangerous- deadly. The second reason is to avoid massive wear on the clutch bearing, clutch bushing, & Crankshaft. It also wears the locator pin due to rattling around. I cringe walking around shows & seeing all the 2 cyl JD's idling away, with the clutch disengaged ;-(
