The clutch won't release when the pedal is depressed. I looked in the inspection hole and the pressure plate is being depressed with the pedal. The tractor has been sitting in a barn for about 20 years. Any ideas on getting it loose with out taking apart? Thanks Tim

I did two C"s over the past two years that have sat over 23 years with this same clutch problem. I started the tractor in 3rd gear and went onto a road on the farm and just kept hitting the brakes real hard, release and hit them again. Don"t try to stop but just hit the brakes and release. Clutch was ok after three or four good hits on the brakes.

Had a 1970 Dodge Truck with the same issue. The clutch plate had rusted to the flywheel. What I did, was had my boy in the cab and depress the clutch pedal, then I got under and split the plate from the flywheel using a screw driver as a prybar..

Might be as simple as spraying brake cleaner into and around the clutch. If it has sat that long theres a good chance that the clutch disk has rusted to the flywheel and because it has done that it sticks. Another way to pop it loose if to start it in a high gear and then drive it around till it pops loose but be sure your out in the open when you do that because you will have a hard time stopping the tractor till it does pop loose
