ok, we all need to slow down. Myself included.
Pretend Farmer: take a minute, and remove the clutch inspection plate. Get a 2nd person to help you with the next step. You will need a flash light.
Have someone work the clutch while you look inside the inspection hole (actually the throwout lube access hole). It is not very big, so not alot to see. However, you should be able to see the overall condition of the pressure plate and disk. you can then watch as the helper works the clutch. You should be able to see whether or not the disk is rusted and not moving.
Before we go down many different, and potentially correct suggestions, let's start with the simple ones, and get progressively deeper up to and including a split of the tractor.....which is a definite possibility. I am not at all familiar with the 140, but I am assuming it has the small opening for greasing the throwout, which might give enough line of sight to tell if the disc is frozen to the fly wheel or not. I may be wrong, as I said, I am not familiar with anything newer than an A, B, or C.
