Need help changing friction disk

Guys, unlike some of the newer designs where the hex shaft is open on one end, my 1965 is encapsulated on both ends. I don't see an easy way out. Does the entire tranny needs to be taken out? Any tips or tricks?

Yep, at least as I remember from last summer. The instructions in the manual were pretty descriptive, at least enough that I was able to follow and get it done. I don't have the instructioni me at the moment. I also remember getting my finger caught between two of the metal pieces....that hurt! I followed the instructions in the manual and was able to get it done as a first-timer, so you'll be able to do it.

Hi, I just replaced the disc on my '65. Was worn almost as much as yours looks, but the new one barely made a difference. I've haven't posted a question on what do next, if anything... But, to get it out, you'll need to disconnect all the linkages and the "top" throw-out bearing rod/pin. The big problem I had was trying to remove the pin that runs through the pivot tube. There's a cotter pin you pull out, but mine was severely rusted to the tube and especially the ~2" long spacer on the right side. This is supposed to slide out and let you pull the disc bracket out. I couldn't get mine out and pulled the chain off, removed the gear bolts so they had just enough play to wrestle the disc bracket out. Royal pain! I didn't think I'd get it all back in, but I did.. with no extra parts left either. That's just a quick recap of what I can remember. I took pictures along the way and can post one or two if it helps. Good luck!

thanks for the fast replies. I got the unit out and the friction disk replace. However, when I was taking it out, i did not pay attention to how the spring is attached. can someone direct me where the spring hooks on to?

I took a look at one of my other machines and figured out where the spring latches to. A bit more work than I expected, but she's all buttoned up and as good as new.

Hey Ken,
What was Ariens thinking when they designed that drive system replacement procedure?
That the original would last 50 years give or take....that's what. MH
