Rule #1 of clutch work is that you always replace everything. Bearing, pilot bushing, disc and pressure plate.
Rule #2 of clutch work is that you always replace everything. Bearing, pilot bushing, disc and pressure plate.
Rule #3 you don't talk about fight club.

Google "b6200 clutch kit" and you'll find lots of places to buy the parts. There is one on eBay for $150.

The reason why you replace everything is because there is so much labor involved in separating an engine from a transmission. So unless you're taking things apart because you screwed up a repair made yesterday (I once put a disc in backwards and that made the tractor pretty much useless), best practice is to replace it all and get the full lifetime out of a clutch assembly before you have to do it again.

Ok got it apart clutch and bearing seem to be new, but the shaft is not centered. When i pulled it out all that was holding it halfway centered was the disc. Am i missing a bushing or is the bearing to big>? :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

Back in 1983, a guy GAVE me a 2 year old 12 HP Cub Cadet garden tractor, with mower and blade,,
because it had developed a "horrible vibration",,, :dunno:
He was convinced the engine was shot,,,:flag_of_truce:

I got it home, took out the clutch, the pilot bushing was gone,,
I guess the vibration destroyed it, once it started to wear,,
I spent $2 for a new one, pressed it in the engine, and reassembled it,,

That was the nicest mowing Cub Cadet I ever owned,,,

BUT, someone with TOO much money wanted it more than me,,,,:laugh:

Picture? Sounds like you have the wrong part. Does it fit on the pilot shaft?
