Craftsman has a lot of older and newer machines, they have been making them for many years.

It would help greatly if we knew what the model number is … also, are you referring to the main drive plate that the friction disc rides against, or the actual friction disc. It is unusual that the drive plate would need replacing, as it is the friction disc that is the wear item, even then, they last a long time if properly adjusted.

Your missing one number in the model number.247.886911?. If so the stud may have a slot. Blip you may be able to blip off the nut with an impact.

number 247.886910.
haven't figured out how to get to underside of bracket yet. It might have screw driver slot.

Looks like the drive plate itself is attached with a flanged nut to the swing bracket … an impact gun should take that off with ease.
