Club Car Driven Clutch


New Member
Hi All,

This is my first posting, so please bear with me. I recently purchased a used cart from an auction. The auction notes said that the clutch needed to be replaced, but I didn't have any time to look at it until after I won the bidding. It turns out that I bought a 1984 Columbia, based on the serial number and some cross-refference information that I found on line. As I understand it, Columbia bought out the cart business of Harley Davidson, and was later bought out by Club Car, so I guess that I have a Harley/Columbia/Club Car cart. The body has the Club Car badge on it, the serial number identifies it as a Columbia, and it has Harley parts on it. If I can figure out how to ad a photo of the clutch to this posting, I will do so. Anyway, the driven clutch needs, at a minimum, the spring and ramp installed, and probably the ramp buttons. It looks as though the retainer clip popped off the hub and the ramp and spring took off too. By the time that I bought the cart, the pieces were long gone. I have found a source for the parts, but I want to take the driven clutch to the parts store to make sure that I am getting the correct parts, and to have the mechanic check the remaining pieces for damage. I have never removed a cart driven clutch before. My question is...How do I remove the driven clutch when the outer sheave is just floating on the shaft, and the inner sheave is apparently fitted onto the cart drive shaft? I would like to get the remaining pieces off without damaging them. I'm assuming that there is some type of tool that is used to remove a fully assembled driven clutch, but I haven't been able to find any information on it, and I don't know if it would be applicable in this situation. Thanks in advance for any help that you can give.

I can help you with the picture posting, but not the clutch.

It is very easy to post pictures. The easiest way is go to a FREE site like Photobucket and get an account. Upload your pictures to Photobucket, then move your cursor over the picture you want to post. Move the cursor down to the box next to IMG CODE. Left click on the words in the box to highlight them, then right click on the words and choose Copy. Then in your Cartaholics post, right click and choose Paste. The main thing is getting the pictures hosted, you can't just add them from a file on your computer.

the driven clutch should just be a bolt on clutch.......columbia and C.C. are just about the same so there should be just 1 bolt in the center that you take off and pull clutch should be simple......................................
