wd 45 loud noise and vibration

I have a wd 45 that will make a loud noise and hard vibration when the tractor is in gear with the hand clutch not engaged. When I pull back on the hand clutch it goes away. when the tractor is in neutral it is quiet also. I know that the main clutch is about worn out because when I push the pedal to change gears it takes a while for the trans to slow enough to shift. When I first got this tractor I could shift the gears after I released the hand clutch. Is it a hard job to replace the main clutch? I have done many automobile clutch jobs. Is it similar? And what is the best source of technical information for this tractor. I saw on ebay a guy selling the manuals on disc for computer use.

It is a bit of a job because of the frame. Not as easy a B or C were you just split the tractor.
Allis Chalmers manuals and I&T manuals are good.
I would buy both.
CD manuals are ok but I like the books.

Personally, I think it"s easier to pull the engine than splitting the tractor and hassling with splitting stands. Back home, all we had was a wire stretcher, not even a hoist for lifting. Lift it up, lay it on the frame.

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
