Default BMT 941 Active Clutch Bearing HELP!





If you look at the picture, the blue "smaller" clutch bell is to a BMT 941 Active the other clutch bell's in the picture are all BMT clutch bell's but the 941's blue clutch bell take a diffrent size set of bearing's. alittle smaller than normal offroad clutch bell bearings, and alot smaller than the other bmt clutch bell's.

normal "offroad type" 5x10x4 bearing's "almost" fit but i have to force them in and im running into cracking the outside case of the bearing once i get them seated.

im thinking mabey a 5x10x4 flanged bearing may work?

i ordered a set to find out for sure, but i figured i would ask and mabey somone out there has the answer for me?

thank you for taking the time to post the information,


i dont see how a 5x10x10 needle bearing will fit, i ordered one found one on Ryobi's website, part for a eletric lawn mower LOL...

Are you sure that the small clutch bell is for the BMT 941 Active. The bell referenced 868 is the one for the 941. The others are for a BMT 950 and a BMT 757.

the centex style is for the 95r (i have one now)

The other is identical to the clutch on my 933 austin 3 speed car

The gold and red clutch bell's are to my 891 2 speed car

the 941 has the updated "smaller" 2 speed transmission like the 95R and unlike the larger diameter 2 speed on the 891 and 933.

i ordered a bunch of diffrent bearing's with the hope of finding the right combanation to match the "factory" clutchbell to the car.

i used one of my serpent centex clutch's on the car it is a perfect match but i dont want to rob it from my 950

im going to take the clutch off of my 933 tonight as it has the same 292 bearing in it, if it fit's then im on the money if id dont... ill have a new needle bearing. lol jesse

i finally found a 5x8x10 needle bearing for the clutch, the 292 5x10x10 is for the larger 891/933 clutch bell's. after ordering all the bearing's i just did may have been cheaper just to buy a mrx or serpent clutch.... lol


got it, they were 5x8x4 flanged bearings, now time to trim/paint the body and go play with this bad boy!
