I just got a WD45 and was wondering what is the deal with the hand clutch and foot clutch... why 2 ? engine is stuck but tractor is nice. another project now. it the 1953 model. was there any up grades to these tractors in the 5 years they were built.? they should be a good little pulling tractor? it has the spin out rear rims is that standard?

Thick transmission oil will cause the multi disc hand clutch to drag which is normal. When the oil is warm/hot you MAY be able to shift using this clutch. Running in oil they will take a lot of abuse-riding, not that I recommend this just saying they are a good rugged clutch. Not grinding gears is good policy too as it can round off the corners of the dog clutches in the constant mesh transmission causing it to pop out of gear.

Like JMS said, the hand clutch was AC's way of giving live PTO/hyd. Some guys can shift with it. My WD wouldn't, but my dad's WD and WD45 you could. Spinout rims were an AC innovation and were standard. Great pulling fun tractors. Not the most operator comfort though.

The foot clutch works like one on any other tractor- stops forward/rearward motion, pto, belt pulley, and hyd. The hand clutch stops only tractor motion, allowing the pto ahd hyd to continue, thus giving live power. It is not independent pto or hyd. Basically no updates during its production run til 1958, but power steering was offered as an option in 1956.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
