Clutch problem for Allis C w/ WD45 engine

I put a WD45 engine on a C and am having problems with the clutch.

Yes, I know the engine has a lot more horsepower than the transmission is rated for. Or the engine was designed for a frame and the C is frameless. I did it because I got the WD45 engine cheap and the C had the crakes between cylinders and sunk in the middle and thought Iíd try this before having the engine milled.

I had the C flywheel milled to fit the WD45 engine and the engine is securely bolted to the frame. Where the flywheel mounts to the WD45 crankshaft sticks out farther that the C. Iím using the C clutch and drive shaft, which was working. Iíve adjusted the release fingers four different positions. Engaging the PTO does not work.

What could be the problem?

Sounds to me like your throw out bearing isnt traveling far enough.

You haven't really said what the problem is, yet. All you have said is that you have a problem and also what you have done.

I have not had the engine running yet while attached so Iím using the starter. While starter on and clutch and brake pedals pressed, the drive shaft continues to turn grinding the gears when trying to put in gear. I can try the starter in gear with the clutch and brakes on and have a little movement and can force it out of gear but not back in. Iíve even tried with PTO engaged with no effect.

You might also have the clutch disc installed backwards, so the offset is binding on the flywheel or pressure plate???
