both clutches on my wd are "tight" Both the hand clutch and foot clutch are either engaged or disengaged. There realy is no between, or slippage. Is there a problem, or is it because it's not been used much. It's a little embarasing when you have to pull the front wheels off the ground to get started out, and that's with nothing on back.

I have a WD45 with a good clutch. It does the same but it will not pull the wheels. Dads 45 is a 55 all orginal its clutch is very smooth. It could need to wear a little.

There are shims in the hand clutch that are used to adjust it- check the operator and service manuals for details.

The foor clutch on the WD's has always been pretty "quick". Once the oil is warmed up well in the hand clutch it should give you about any amount of slippage you want. It is made to slip but when the oil is cold and stiff or to heavy a weight it will creep and it will be jerky. The foot clutch works best for changing gears,that sort of thing.

Unless there is another problem....it sounds like you need to put a load on it.....work it.....use either clutch several times.starting under load.....it may be just fine.. WD's & WD-45's are pretty "peppy" and, with those quick governors, can be a little touchy to back...!! Most of these old tractors were never meant to loaf all day..!! They are at their BEST when the carbon is kept burnt out...!!
