I got a 37 unstyled a few months ago for a father son project.Some key parts were missing when we got it but have been able to get them for a good price.I have posted questions on here with diffrent problems and advice we have been having.Started out with could not get clutch to snap have all new clutch parts and still wouldn"t work.Determind to much end play in crank moved flywheel in as far as possible still no change in clutch or end play the only thing i know could be warn main bearing witch means crank would have to be replaced.Now is it worth putting anymore money in or anything i can check why have to much end play scrap prices are up right now.I always wanted a unstyle A was in 7th heaven when i got one but having second thoughts about this one. Thanks for all the advice everyone has given me John deere people are the best. Thanks

Just a thought on the clutch problem, does that clutch have the three pins that you would install the facing disk on? I know the adjusting plate goes on the bolts, make sure you dont have the facing disk on the bolts. Jim

put it on ebay with a reserve that you have tied up in it anything over that will be money made and you have alot more people telling you what its worth or not worth but Im sure it will be more than scrap price.

Alvin. Can you adjust the rod from the clutch handle to the clutch shorter to allow less play in the clutch? That might give the snap you need. Good luck.

I still think there is something simple being overlooked with the clutch problem. Do you have a good manual to go by? I hate that you guys are having so much trouble on your project together.You might holler out and see if there are anyone close to you that would be willing to give you guys a hand on the clutch problem.

It's Possible the clutch dogs and pivots have enough wear causing your clutch problems.

Dont know much about 37 unstyled but do know the time you and your son spend together is priceless.The end product will hopefully be worth the work and he will have learned one of lifes greatest lessons that things arent always as easy as you hope for.Sometimes you have to find an older expert on these older tractors that has been there before.Of course my kids are grown and now we have Great Grand kids.But I always wanted them to finish what they started or not start.

alvan. I bought a 35' this summer and yours sounds pretty sweet compared to what I'm working with. Right now I've got it in the storage shed, 3 pallats and the rear end. I don't think there's anything that Isn't stuck on it, needs rear wheels (hope to find steel). But man- what a challenge !!!!

You can always buy a running one cheaper than you can fix one.

Please don't scrap a 75 year old 2 cylinder. They're getting hard to find & expensive. Sell it if you must but don't send it to CHINA to make war machines with :'(

No matter how worn the main bearings are has NO effect on having to replace the crankshaft! You just have it turned true & when the bearings get back from being rebabbitted you size them to the crank. You've got something assembled wrong OR missing.

Even thinking of scrapping the tractor just because "you" can"t figure it out is pretty ridiculous. I"m sure someone near you is capable of figuring it out.

if you wind up deciding it is more than you wanna tackle try selling it before scraping it. I too have always wanted an unstyled tractor but havnt found one yet

Pictures would help, but I think you should hang in there and get it going...!!

The clutch should work, if it is assembled correctly, no matter how "worn" the Mains are..

I agree with Bushog, I would re check your clutch. You just overlooked something simple. Hang in there you will get it going. What did you replace in the clutch. Just the disks? Or everything? Good luck.

Often times a new aftermarket driver doesn't go on far enough so you need to put 2 disks behind it. Use a worn one & a new one or 2 worn ones etc. Also, if you remove the whole pulley you can look at the T-bolts & dogs to see if worn excessively. There's a bearing & a bushing in therethat need clean grease also.
