    I was on the BOP site recently looking at parts and they list the spindles/spindle housings as unavailable, but you can get them directly from Noram, just like the clutches.

    Thanks for the heads up on the cables.

    Does anyone know what the BOP paint code is? I know we can order a can from BOP but Im thinking of buying a quart.

    I got a quart of BOP green by having Lowe's scan the color from the discharge chute on my machine !! If I can remember, I'll try to get the code for you.

    When you say "smashed a fire hydrant", by my way of thinking that should only damage the deck, wheel or handle bars ... I really don't understand how the engine was damaged being mounted in the middle of the unit the way it is !!

    anyone know offhand the direction of the bolt to loosen on these multi-disk clutches? i'm thinking counter clockwise or opposite the direction of the clutch rotation. anyway, should figure it out, need to replace one this afternoon and if had issues with how tight it was installed didn't wanna make it more of an issue. thanks in advance.

    CCW to loosen like any other usual bolt. Air tools make this chore a LOT easier...both removing and installing. Otherwise, you'll need a plumbers wrench to hold the shaft from above. Use red(?) Lok-tite to reinstall.

    The single-disk clutch is easier than the multi-disk due to the anti-rotation bracket location.

    You'll have a tough time finding a plumbers wrench that is narrow enough to fit (at least I did have a tough time)...this is where the air tool will allow you to just spin it on and off.

    valk, appreciate the help. now need a little bit more help. just got around to taking the bolt off, that went smoothly but now cannot remove the clutch. could it be wedged or siezed on the spindle? idk, don't wanna start banging on things. also book says to remove engine bolts to rotate but only for single disk, no mention on the multi-disk.

    Spray e penetrating oil on the bolt hole and the top. I changed mine once and it came right off, but the tend to get rusted.
