I would pull the cover off and take the clutch apart. Look for lots of rust and be sure to note how parts came out. It almost sounds to me like it is just slipping. There should be two dry disks, one on outside of cast driver,the other behind. Now the best bet would be that the driver wil come off hard. Use two 5/8 bolts with nuts on the backside to act as a puller. There are notches built in for this purpose. Witha little patience it will come. Dont break it as they are expensive! Removing that is the hardest part. Disks are cheap, and as far as being a common problem, no it is not.

Thank you very much. I guess, as I have no experience with John Deere"s, I am just trying to confirm if I am on the right track. My suspicion is to check the clutch first as the only time I drove the tractor several years ago, I could not get the clutch to engage properly. I did take the cover off and the inside is full of black powder, smells strongly of gasoline, though I cannot imagine how gas would be in the clutch housing. That is what I will try first. Thank you so much for the advise on pulling the cast disc.

The black dust is what prob remains of the clutch discs. As for the gas smell, chances are it could have flooded once or the needle stuck on carb letting fuel into the crankcase. Drain all the fluids and fill with new before you try much else. I have a 49 completely tore down in the shop and its getting every last thing it needs before i put her back together! If you have any other concerns or questions just let us know. . .good luck!
