I was wondering if there's someway to adjust the clutch on my 440 dry clutch. I have turned in the forked linkage by the pedal about ad much as I can without it pulling the clutch or ask the time. Is the next step sliding the tractor or is there another way to adjust it? Thanks for any help.

Ok, that makes sense with the hands clutch. Looks like I do have a split in my future. Hopefully that last adjustment holds out a while so I can save up for a replacement tractor while that one is down. I'm hesitantly looking forward to that day where I have to split it. I haven't done any clutch work yet, so it'll be a learning experience for sure. I'm thinking it'll make a good time to tear down the tractor and do a lot of work to it and put a fresh coat on her. I'm just hoping I can find plenty of resources out there to help me along the way when I get there.

Haha, thanks for all the help guys. I've run across a couple post by my namesake and had to think twice if I somehow posted on here. Anyway, I guess I do have a hand clutch? It's a lever on the right side for high and low gear. It's not a triple range, just draft o matic.

Joseph

The hand clutch lever is identified in the first picture below. In some of the later series the lever was actually horizontal vs vertical, but it functioned identically. (Forward/Up = Engaged, Aft/Down = Disengaged). The hand clutch should require 45-60 lbs to "snap" over center to engage.

The second picture below shows the the position of the range shifter (triple or dual range tractors)

Joseph, no body ever asks you about the "Mighty Joe Young" thing... Do they?

There should be a small amount of free travel (about a 1/4 inch If I remember correctly) after the clutch is fully engaged. The turnbuckle to do the adjustment is just ahead go the clutch pedal. There is no other adjustment.

Does your 430 have a hand clutch or a live PTO? If it has a hand clutch, that clutch rather than the main clutch might be the culprit. As Jim said, that clutch is adjusted by removing the dual range cover, and making the adjustment by moving the dual pin adjuster clockwise ( I think... From memory).

If there is no hand clutch and your out of adjustment on the main clutch, you have a split in your future.

I don't have access to my service manuals tonight, but if you would like those sections copied, I would gladly send them to you sometime tomorrow.

Welcome aboard.... I've never met a namesake. With a name like that, and a passion for rock island case tractors, ya gotta be ok!

My memory was wrong about the clutch adjustment. There should be 7/8" to 1 1/8" free travel in the clutch peddle. That setting should result in approximately 1/16" of travel of the rod as measured where it enters the bell housing.

Sorry for the confusion.

It is a bit troubling for sure. I do like doubling my odds when dealing with Young ladies however....
