D14 : Hi-low clutch heating up

I recently bought a D14, and I have noticed that the housing around the hi-low clutch gets pretty warm when I use the tractor. I have not really noticed slippage, but I have not pulled it hard yet, either. Is it normal for this to heat up under use. Also, when you check the oil in the hi-low clutch housing, should it be to the full mark when the cap is screwed down or when it is just set in place? On my tractor it is to the mark when the cap is just set on, but that puts it well past the mark when you screw it down. Could this have anything to do with the heating up?
Thanks for any help.

The clutch you are talking about is actually a combination high/low range and live power clutch. It was designed to be used with the roto bailer that AC made for years. It is a multi-wet plate clutch not unlike what is used on Japanese motorcycles. They are very durable. They will generate heat. They ocassionally need adjustment but as long as it is working with no unusual noise there should be no problem.

Thanks for the info. I used the tractor to do a little plowing and disking this weekend and the clutch seemed to work fine (no slippage), so I guess the heating that I noticed is normal for this tractor. When you say that they need adjustment, do you mean rearrangement of the shims in the clutch? How do you know when this is needed?

Should be at the full mark when cap is screwed down on trans case. If oil is at full mark when dipstick is just set on case then its to full. That will create lots of heat if the oil level is high enough for the rotating clutch to whip the oil. Drain some out and try it again.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
