Am i right in assuming that that big spring is going to almost have to be compressed together to get the 2 friction plates, and 2 friction gaskets, and fan onto the shaft?
Does the lock fit in the channel between the 1/16 grooved piece at the end of the fan shaft and the 4in grooved part?

A couple of c clamps and you can draw it right down to put the locks in. They are like valve keepers and go in the end of the shaft and a sleeve with a tapered insides goes on first it slides up on the locks and holds it together.

Tried it. Looked like all that was going to do was break the pulley. I had them on the pulley and the first disc.

Couldnt put anything else on anyway as the bottom of the clamps was in the way.

When going back together if all is clean and right they compress very easy.Something must not be correct. Now getting them apart is ALOT HARDER.

Later JD parts books show great detail and really help at assembly time. Never made an A service manual but the one for B's is really a big help too and well illustrated.I won't work on one without it handy.

Id say all is as clean as it needs to be. I tapped the pulley onto the shaft more or less with no problem. I was bringing the spring together last night ok but it was getting so hard to turn the clamp that I thought I might break the pulley, it being cast. Im going to try something different today. Id tell you what it was, if I was sure I knew LOL.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Before I had a shop press, I pressed many of them together with just a floor jack and an overhead barn beam. On the power steering pumps, which have the same spring clutch, but not much length, I lay them on a floor jack and bring the whole mess up under my 70D drawbar frame. It takes a bit of force, but not as much as it seems you require. I agree that you might have a mixture of parts in there.

Well I fooled with it for round 40 mins. Got to where I was getting hot and decided Id better do something else. I got the spring all the way back and the fan and outer friction plate on WITHOUT the friction pads. I still could only get it skinned back bout 1/2 way in the channel for the lock. All ive got on the splined shaft is the pulley, 2 friction plates and the fan.
