Did this problem come about gradually or all of a sudden? I ask this because as the clutch lining wears, the clutch housing moves farther away from the throwout bearing. The result is that when you pull the lever back, the throwout bearing never touches the clutch and it doesn't disengage. It's easy to adjust assuming the mechanism isn't rusted. You look down the hole to the clutch and see a thing that looks like a gear. You also see a bolt (setscrew) that you tighten to lock that "gear" in place. You have to loosen the setscrew and then use a screwdriver to pry on the teeth of the gear to turn it back on top. This will move the throwout bearing closer to the clutch. When the clutch is in the engaged position, I believe the clearance is supposed to be .030" between the bearing and the clutch. When it is adjusted, then retighten the setscrew. If wear on the clutch linings is the problem, this will solve it. However, it could be like you said that it's just stuck together from sitting a long time. I also saw one once ( my own tractor) that was bolted together I suppose because it was slipping. However, it was missing the steel balls that are needed to tighten the clutch up when a load is applied to it so there was a good reason for it to slip. A new set of linings and replacing the steel balls and it's as good as new.
Please let me know what you found out on your tractor. I like my CA a lot.
