    I have pulled a clutch of my mower that is a closed design, the lead wires are sheared and I need to replace the clutch. I am wanting to find a more pratical design to replace this. Since I am Fairly new to this game what information is needed to seek a replacement, since the dealer is of no help where can I find models to replace it, any web sites or names will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Josh:confused:

    Probably not much you can do about changing the style of clutch you have without a whole lot of design changes. Elect. clutches dont go bad too often unless something else causes it to do so.
    what kind of equipment are you having trouble with?

    It is a Country Clipper Jazee, It's a homeowner version that is getting beat-up in my part-time gig. I was looking to change the type of clucth so this wouldn't happen again. Do you know of places to get clutches at a cheaper price than through a dealer?
    Thanks Josh.

    I can get you a part number if you want to try giving shivvers(maker of country clippers) a call and see if they will send you one.

    Try J Thomas. It seems like they have elect. clutches kind of cheap. They are all expensive.

    See if it has a Warner number on it and maybe I have one or can tell where to get one. Also need to figure out why the wires pulled out, did the mount break that keeps it from spinning when its engaged?

    Thanks to all of you for the replies,

    Eddies, I have a Warner 5219-22 loos like it was made in June 24, 2002. The wires have sheared at the plastic. There doesn't appear to be any pulling, but I would like to know more about the mount. This clutch attaches to a rod with just a bolt. The wires run up through the frame and attach to a switch behind the seat. I suspect the unprotected under-belly of this machine is the culprit. If you can let me know about the clutch I sure would be obliged. Thanks, Josh
