    I have an 02 bobcat 52" ZTR....clutch went and i bought a new one....checked 2x it is the right part


    put the new clutch on, but the bracket that holds the bottom half in place (you know...the bracket that slides onto the 'stud' then bolts to the clutch) doesnt line up with the bolt holes in the new clutch


    so....so i need a new bracket....or did i get the wrong clutch? mower shop swears its the right one....but the space between bolt holds is 1" greater than that on the bracket


    ideaS?
