Re: Hand Clutch (Live PTO) on '54 WD45

The foot clutch on the WD series will disengage everything ie transmission, and PTO. Using the hand clutch allows the PTO to remain engaged but allows you to shift or stop by disengaging the transmission. The WD series really does not have a live PTO but accomplishes about the same thing by using the hand clutch.

The WD does indeed have a live pto- but it is not an independent pto. Live means it can run without forward motion of the tractor. Independent pto is one that can be engaged by it's own clutch, independent of the clutch that controls the transmission, and thus forward/rearward motion of the tractor.

If you shift the gears and stop the tractor using the hand clutch you have live PTO power. Use the foot clutch to engage the pto, then use the hand clutch to start, stop, and shift.

The WD/WD45 is meant to be shifted with the foot clutch. Sometimes you can shift using only the hand clutch, but that is because of years of wear of the gears.
