My '49 WD has clutch problems. Can't seem to get the clutch to release when I take my foot off the clutch pedal. Sooooo... I put it in gear, disengage the hand clutch and take off!!! Any suggestions? Thanks

I"m more than a bit confused with your explanation. I think it is just bass ackward. When you push in the foot clutch- it should release, if the fingers are adjusted correctly, not broken, and the linings are good, and not bound to the flywheel. When you engage the hand clutch, you pull it towards you, it engages, and the tractor should move. There is a cover under the foot clutch- take it off, check for broken parts, set the fingers per the service manual, that contact the release bearing. Might have a broken finger/spring among the three of them.

You're right, I did say it backwards. I shove in on the pedal but when I take my foot off, the peddle is floppy. The clutch plate did not return. I have checked through the plate below and all looks well. Also greased the throwout bearing.

On my WC I adjusted the tension on the springs. And that sure helped. But don't remember what I did. I'm having senior moments I guess at 88 years. I only have 12 running tractors, oldest a '29 JD/D and newest a '72 Ford 2000. Of course I have 7.5 acres and a guy needs the equipment to farm all that land!! Have to learn how to run each one as I get on a different tractor. They are all different, personalities and all.

Today's Featured Article - Upgrading an Oliver Super 55 Electrical System - by Dennis Hawkins. My old Oliver Super 55 has been just sitting and rusting for several years now. I really hate to see a good tractor being treated that way, but not being able to start it without a 30 minute point filing ritual every time contributed to its demise. If it would just start when I turn the key, then I would use it more often. In addition to a bad case of old age, most of the tractor's original electrical system was simply too unreliable to keep. The main focus of this page is to show how I upgr ... [Read Article]
