The clutch assembly kit consists of a new
clock, a clutch drum, and the washers needed for mounting it to the engine. Over time, your tools clutch will wear. It will begin to slip under load, and you
will notice the tool will perform less and less like it once did. Replacing the clutch assembly is a repair
that you can do yourself, and I’m going to show you how. Hi, I’m Mark Sodja. Do-it-yourself repairs like these are easier
than you might think. From lawn machines to cordless drills, kitchen
mixers, outdoor grills, our how-to videos walk you through each repair from start to
finish, so doing it yourself means never having to do it alone. Let’s get started. I’ll begin by removing the rear cover from
the motor. Next, I’ll remove the side cover from the
throttle trigger handle. Now remove the throttle assembly from the
shaft, now remove the three screws to secure the shaft assembly to the engine. Now remove the clutch drum. Now remove the clutch. The clutch is graded on to the crankshaft. To remove it, I’ll place a screwdriver on
the edge of the clutch, and then strike the screwdriver with a mallet to break the clutch
free from the shaft. Now I can install the new clutch. I’ll place the large washer over the crankshaft,
and then thread the clutch in place. Again, I’ll use the screwdriver and mallet
to tighten it up. It will tighten itself as you use the tool. Now, place the two thin washers over the crankshaft
and reinstall the clutch drum. Now reconnect the shaft to the engine. Now realign the throttle handle with a shaft
and install the other half. I’ll secure the two halves together with the
screws. The last screw secures the throttle handle
to the shaft. I’ll make sure the hole is aligned and then
secure the screw. I’ll finish up by reinstalling the rear cover. That’s how you can install a new clutch assembly
in your small engine. Be sure to check back often for new videos
