    Evening-I have a toro wb and I had to replace the clutch (electric). There is a large metal tab that bolts on to the frame that keeps the entire clutch from spinning. Well, in the interim between removal of old clutch and ordering/installing new clutch, I have forgotten how this bolts up, and have not had much luck reinstalling it.

    Would someone mind taking a pic. of the underside of their toro wb with an electric clutch so that I can see exactly how this things mounts in reference to the clutch?

    I'd surely appreciate it.

    If it is easier you can send it to actionmatthew@gmail.com

    Thank you,
    Matthew

    Hi, what year mower do you have. I might be able to help with the setup they have on some older models, but not on newer models.
    Is this what your braket looks like?

    Here is a parts diagram that might help.

    As long as the bracket does not contact a moving portion of the clutch and does not rub the belt it does not matter how or where that bracket(or other torque restraint) is attached.

    Yep thats it. I might just be able to figure it out from that diagram but if anyone has an actual picture of theirs mounted, that would be awesome.

    Thanks for the help lcpullman!

    By the way, since your replacing your clutch, make sure you get the crankshaft bolt (holds the clutch on) torqued real good (around 50 lb-ft). If it is allowed to loosen up, you can wreck your crankshaft.

    I ran into that on my mower, had to replace the crankshaft and the upper part of the clutch. Rather expensive mistake!

    After I replaced all that, I got an impact wrench to get that bolt tight.
    The only other option is to somehow hold the flywheel really good and then you can torque the bolt up without the engine turning.
