I'm going next week to look at and maybe purchase a ca.I just glanced at it before but did'nt get to look at it close. I saw a hand clutch and some sort of lift . It has a wide front and very good tires all the way around.I have heard about transmision problems (jumping out of gear) are something to look for. What about the hand clutch .Is it like a WD or is it a dry clutch? Where can I get some information on the CA?
thanks all..

The little AC book was very interesting,and helpful.along with all the information. One more question. Are the dry hand clutch disks still available,either new or rebuilt? without the hand clutch the whole tractor is'nt very useable,at least for me. I plan th use a 5 foot bush hog and a finish mower and a hay rake.Mowing mainly,and the hand clutch is a must.

The hand clutch is spring loaded and must be pulled towards the operator to disengage....it operates dry and is a weak link in the CA drivetrain. Many slipped due to improper adjustment or leaking axle seals and were replaced with a solid axle or bolted together. I have 4 CAs and only one has a working hand clutch.
Also check rear rims for rust...they can be expensive. The wide fronts were a little weak and may be bent or welded up....the pivot point on them was a wear point as well. The hydraulic pumps can get sticky and take some time to work, but are easy to work on. Snap coupler hands (if a sc version) can be hard to find if they are missing. Also check for slop in the steering box....good luck!

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]
