Engine (foot) Clutch Adjustment

Our WD foot clutch has a lot of excessive movement before it engages. The adjustment rod is screwed all the way out to the end of the threads. We have checked all the linkages, taken the covers off and checked the new clutch plates, new throw-out bearing. This play was there when it was bought and can"t figure out how to eliminate it.

One important thing is that the throwout bearing moves back away from the fingers, maybe 1/8". The distance can be called "free play". That phrase can also describe the movement of the clutch pedal from rest, until you feel the resistance of the bearing starting to push on the fingers. One to two inches. It will vary on different machines.

The other important thing is that the clutch disengages enough that you can shift easily without grinding gears.

Usually the fingers are adjustable. That needs to be done before the tractor is put back together. Any external adjustment depends on the internal being correct.

These are generalities. I don't remember any particulars with the WD/WD45.

As long as you have "free play" (throwout bearing is backing away from the fingers) and you can shift OK, you're OK.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
