I've seen a couple times either on here or the other YT forums about people keeping the clutch pedal depressed so the clutch won't stick if left unused for awhile. Instead of blocking or wiring the pedal down, someone showed me this years ago. Just depress the pedal with your hand and then put a 3/8" nut between the adjusting bolt head and casting of tractor. Works perfectly. When ready to use the tractor, just put your hand under nut, depress pedal, nut will come free, and your ready to go. Hardest thing I've found is finding which pocket I put the nut in to put it back when I'm done for the day.

Maybe paranoid, but I wondered if keeping the clutch depressed, stresses and weakens the springs on the pressure plate.

I just try to start and run once a month or so.

I did have my clutch stuck on the 4500, but it had set unused for many years, before coming to my home.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Be sure to run it long enough to heat it up or you will be putting condensation into your oil

Question:
how long does this tractor set unused: before the clutch freezes to the pressure plate?

a few days, months or ??

I do not remember having that problem, but today as I walk by the old tractor, I will give the clutch pedal a kick and be sure its move back and forth a few times.

Sorry, but I have to ask -- Which pocket do you keep the cement block in? :wink: :lol:

Well most of the time when I am done with that tractor it gets parked close to where it was so no problems with moving the block far

When I remember to do it, I use a an old broom handle from the pedal to the steering wheel, and put it on shelve right where I park the tractor.
