your hand clutch has nothing to do with your right wheel it is the same as your foot cluutch in as far as operating the tractor if it dont nothing will work . you can set them up by removing houseing cover n take out shims there are three sets of shims .010 n .020 thick . take them out of one plce n put them behind the bolt head .

This is a ca not a wd or wd45. The ca has a dry clutch that is located in the right axel housing. When the hand lever is pulled it separates the axel and stops forward motion and lets the pto and hyd. Pump continue to run.

Mine works super in heavy mowing or when pulling a baler and you need to slow the feed rate.

The hand clutch on the CA is mounted on the right hand axle. When you pull the handle back, you're effectively "breaking" the right axle. This would be just like jacking one wheel off the ground. THat wheel would spin and there would be no power to the other wheel because of the differential and you wouldn't move. Having this clutch is a rather neat way to get live PTO in an older tractor design that wasn't originally designed with live power. If the hand clutch won't disengage, not really a problem unless you want live PTO. It would be just like a C or B in that regard. On the other hand, if the hand clutch slips, you wouldn't be able to pull much with the tractor, but the PTO would still work fine.

My father has a CA and he has just found out that his hand clutch does indeed slip. I won't actually work if you pull the handle but it slips under load.

How big of job is it to rebuild this and are the parts available.

Today's Featured Article - Gettin My Old Tractor Home - by Clayton Sweeney. My name is Clayton Sweeney. I am from Southern Maryland in a small town called Lothian. I am 20 and my father and I are the proud owner of a 1954 Allis Chalmers WD-45. When I was 18, I dated a girl in the next county over. Her family are tobacco farmers. It was a cold Thanksgiving evening, and we were going up to her Grandparents house. As we passed one of their barns, I noticed something orange in the corner of my eye in this old shed. It was pretty dark and I asked what it was ... [Read Article]
