I have been looking at a AC D17 series III and have some questions. Is it normal for the tractor to creep slightly even when the power diverter (big stick) is in the neutral positon. As soon as you apply the brakes the tractor stops and does not seem to pull the motor down. Second has anyone installed a Bucket loader on a D17 series III. I know that they have a remote to raise wheeled implements but how do you tap the tractor hydraulics. Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

Regarding the Power Director (hand clutch), the "creep" you describe is normal. It could be slightly out of adjustment, but this usually occurs when the tractor is cold. As the cold oil in the Power Director circulates, this causes a "drag" between the clutch discs, making the tractor creep forward. After you drive it for a while, the oil warms up and the effect lessens. This is why you won't notice it as much in warmer weather, or after the tractor warms up.

Good luck,
Brian A.

Brian, We have a model 400 Allis loader on a series 1 D17. It has a pump that mounts on the front, and is run off of the crank shaft. The loader has it's own oil Tank, because the tractor doesn't have enough capacity. As for the creeping, ours does the same thing, if I remember right my Grandfather was told that it is tricky to keep the hand clutch perfectly adjusted, not sure though, maybe someone else can shed a little more light on that subject.

I have an endloader on my D-17 IV. It uses the remote hydraulics to run the loader. The clutch thing is not unusual, mine has a slight pull when in neutral but does not move. John

I have a D-19 that pulls some in neutral. I don't think they did this when they were new but it seems to be characteristic of their age maybe. Mine does it less when after it warms up.
