Good posts and the correct diagnosis of the noise. Is the blade break clutch pad still if good shape? It not you might have been better off with a full blade break clutch replacement, but that clutch assembly runs about $175 for the part now days. To work on the clutch I’d recommend removing the whole clutch assembly, replace the bearing and reinstall. Do you have a copy of Technical Manual TM1471? I believe you can still find it online for free in PDF format with a Google search hosted on a website called Bionic Engineering. That manual is the dealer repair manual on the silver deck mowers but since the JX75 is identical except for color of the deck if yours has the Kawasaki FC150V engine.
