|Sean in PA said: (quoted from post at 15:23:20 04/17/13) In any case, you should be able to replace the clutch and/or PTO brake by removing the rear end/hydraulic top cover and pulling the PTO shaft out the rear of the tractor some, without having to split the tractor.|
You ever actually done that on a 3 cylinder Ford? Not going to happen that way. The PTO clutch drives from the transmission bottom shaft and will not clear the transmission output shaft, coupler, and differential pinion shaft to come out the top. The brake pad can be changed (with some difficulty) by removing the brake piston cover from the rear axle center section, but the real answer to servicing the 3 cylinder Ford IPTO clutch is a rear split.
