Have a WD45 and think that I need a new clutch soon. I feel capable but didn't know of any tricks/shortcuts. AND what is the clearance from the throwout bearing that the disengaging arms are to be. I've purchased several (prettywell worthless) manuals and there is little to no information.

Any secrets or tricks that you could share? I've done this on cars and trucks but never a tractor.

I agree with what has been said if you need to change the engine clutch. If you need to change the transmission (hand) clutch then you will need much more time and need some way to support and align the two sections of the tractor. I suggest the use of 4 LONG bolts as guide rods when seperating the two sections of the tractor. Be sure to adequately support the two sections of the tractor while working on the transmission clutch. Review the service manual before you start this job. Good luck, Gordon

Hi Pete

The arm as you called them I set them about 1/8 " . After I check out the other things etc, I double check it again. If they were worn too badly that maybe the only thing not working right as far same the clutch goes. But the throw out bearing that maybe be shot. To change the clutch I would say and 3-4 hours if you don't break any thing. I broke a steering shaft sirport that goes on the frame one time, so take it off. I also had trouble getting the steer u-joint to come off of the shaft.

Good Luck !!

Good working space and engine hoist you can do it in 3 hours. Just allow about 1 1/2 inch free play on clutch pedal
