When we engage the clutch on the 400 farmall, there is no easing into it. It is real grabby, more so going forward than reverse. Like throw- you-off-the-seat-if-your-not-hanging-on-tight grabby. But it does seem to get temporarily better if you are doing a lot of clutching. It is pretty close to pedal all the way released when engaging, but there is a little adjustment left, it looks like to me. I just thought that maybe with it temporarily improving, the clutch was gettin wet when sitting then drying off when used more? By wet i mean oily. Is this just a wore out clutch or a bad seal? Is there an inspection plate where one could see the clutch condition without splitting?

If you're anywhere near the right amount of free pedal play and you have very little "feel" and the clutch is "grabby," my suspicion is that it is very near the end of it's useful life. In other words it's just about shot.

If the clutch is getting oily then you've got bigger problems.

Either way it's a split of the tractor to get at it.

A little bit of oil on the clutch will make it very "grabby". When you use it a bit it can get hot and it will be better until it cools off again. If you get more oil on the clutch it will not be as grabby but instead will start to slip under load.
