Iron mule flywheel
« on: January 23, 2019, 08:07:48 AM »
My starter is not engaging every time on the flywheel. The flywheel is worn in spots so I called Rolland equipment to order one so itís on hand when I need it. Well they no longer have one in stock. Said heíd call around and check/dig. I hope he come up with something or maybe you guys can help. Itís a ford based machine. Ford engine and 3 speed auto power shift trans. The part number in my book is 0400-0196 maybe another machine has it also. Iíll post a pic of what my book shows. Assuming itís right. Could I have it welded and machined down?

Just did a clutch in a 5310 iron mule a month back and all the parts came from the New Holland dealer for a ford 5000 tractor. Im nearly positive the ring gear on the flywheel is replaceable separately.

 I think youíre right Chevy Tahoe the only thing is this is a not very common three speed clark power shift most are manual trans. But Iím thinking 70s and 80s technology they probably use the same replaceable ring gear on all of the ford 5000 series

Turn the gear around and put it back on.  

An old car rim makes a good pressing socket.  When you go to put it back on just put flywheel outside and gear hoop in the oven or on the woodstove.  A diesel shop with a flywheel grinder should be able to do this for ya.

Never thought of turning it around. Worst case I can do that. Iíll order one for a ford tractor. Also says 5550 backhoe. Which is what my mule is. 5550. Thanks.

The guys at Roland are usually pretty good about digging into the belly of archives for iron mikes. Mike seems to be the guru about them. Ford used the same parts through the 70ís 80ís and early 90ís across many different models. Iím not sure what year your 5550 is. But a 5000 tractor should have the same parts. Iím fairly certain you can change just the ring gear also. If you have a spare parts book as far as I know all the numbers are still good numbers. Itís just a matter if the part is still available. A 5310 which is what I have was build out of 6610 tractors. But as I said lots of parts are the same on a 5000 and lots of models in between.

Ford Tractor Engine Flywheel Ring Gear

Looking at that I have two choices. Should be simple.

  I resemble that remark. Some of mine get parked by the sink overnight.
