#$@%^@% CLUTCH !!!

Thanks for the responses on the Trailer..I will be getting a 20', 10,000 lb rated trailer...I'd rather have too much trailer and not enough..I think My CHEVY 1 ton with overload springs will be enough truck..

Now for the 8n adventures..My clutch had gotten to the point where there was no pedal and no release when fully depressed..So, got a clutch, pressure plate and throw-out bearing..Got the flywheel cleaned up. Installed the clutch. Had to adjust all the way in , and the assembly lasted about 45 minutes..Now, no clutch, no pedal...

A friend says I need to shim the pressure plate away from the flywheel to compensate for having the flywheel cleaned up...I ain't too sure about that. It sounds sorta half-fast...(if you know what I mean)...

Has anyone experienced this,,,or did I just get a crappy pressure plate.or, have I lost my mind..

I have quite a but of work lined up and need this baby rollin'...

Refacing the flywheel will have no effect on the clutch operation or tension of the pressure place. It could possibly have a minute effect if the pressure plate is resurfaced but you would never know it.

The most likely problem you probably have is that the outside linkage where the shaft goes into the clutch housing is cracked and it moving instead of the shaft moving when the clutch is depressed. Carfully inspect the place where the arm is attached to the shaft while depressing the pedal.

Custer, I hope that I get to you befor you break the tractor apart again. I had a similar problem with my 51 8N years ago and spent big bucks for all new clutch. The old one was fine but I put in the new stuff anyway. NO CLUTCH!
My local Ford dealer (before FNH) said to check the external linkage. I did. It was split on the underside. When the pedal was released it would close, When the pedal was depresed, it would open and not rotate the shaft to the throwout bearing.
With the wheels blocked and the engine off, lay underneath while someone depresses the pedal and look for a split. I keep the old part on the shelf as a reminder.

>>>My clutch had gotten to the point where there was no pedal and no release when fully depressed<< That ain't right even if your old clutch was badly worn. When you get it back apart check to make sure the clutch release fork has not started shearing the pin that holds it to the shaft.

Custer..........yer not gonna believe this, but you've installed your clutch disc wrong side out. The clutch hub is offset and will prevent you from releasing/engaging when you put the peddle to the metal. Check it out. You're up on the learning curve, 2nd time split goes much faster...........Dell

It seems to me that any small amount that was taken off the pressure plate when it was re-surfaced would be compensated by the thickness of the new clutch plate. Just my thoughts.

Is it possible to either bend the throwout bearing forks...or for the clutch shaft to spin ?? Has anyone experienced either of these ????
