Hand Clutch

The hand clutch on my Allis Wd45 for some reason will not stay ingaged when pulled back. Nothing looks worn out. Is there some check list that would tell me why it is doing it? Would too much oil in the chamber cause this? Not sure how to cure this. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I had the same problem. After removing some shims I still had that problem. Ended up checking the gap between the clutch plates and found it was not even. My Agco book says there shoud be .065 gap. I ended up removing one bolt to make it easier to remove the shims. Hope this helps.

You can go back a few days for my detailed explanation..........or pull the battery and box, the cover underneath.....LOOSEN, not remove the two bolts at three locations around the clutch, and remove equal number of shims at each location to tighten up the clutch until the hand lever snaps over center. Shims are slotted, so you can loosen, not remove the bolts, and pull shims. If shims are gone, it is time to split the tractor and rebuild the clutch with new plates and shims. Oil level has nothing to do with your problem- it is shims or worn clutch plates.

Probably needs a shim removed. Ditto the need for a good service manual for instructions.

The clutch is out of adjustment. I can't explain it to good.....best thing is to get a manual that shows you how. It is a wet clutch....its always in oil.

It is hard to explain here but in the I-T manual it explains how to adjust it so it will snap in and stay in place. That is the AC-11 manual by the way

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
