Hello, Everyone! I hope you survived our first real blast of winter! We had about 6-8 inches of new snow here in SEMN today, now its just windy and getting colder. All this snow got me to wondering about a good loader tractor. I really like the White 120 or Workhorse 125, but the 14" single-plate clutch gets to be a workout on the old knee after awhile. The 2-105/2-110 are really nice tractors, but they are getting-on in years now, too. I was wondering about the possibility of installing a 13" dual-plate clutch into a 125 or 145 Workhorse. I know that guys have replaced single-plate clutches with dual-plate clutches in Oliver 2255"s. With the installation of a flat flywheel and a longer Over/Under input shaft, can a dual-plate, 13" clutch be installed? The White 2-180, 4-210, 4-225, 160, 185, 170, and 195 all use this clutch. I know it is more expensive to replace/rebuild, but it is much easier to operate and lasts a long time. When it comes to clutches, which is more important: spring pressure, or friction surface area? If I were to take a 145 Workhorse clutch and reduce the spring pressure to match the pedal effort of a 2-105, would I significantly shorten the life of the clutch? I know that clutch rebuilders will build custom applications. What are your thoughts? Enjoy a safe weekend, and a very Blessed Christmas to all of you! Merlin in Rushford, MN
