WD45 Engine Clutch

How can you tell when a clutch is wore out and in need of replacing? I always thought it was when it began slipping under a load. I have the opposite problem with a '45 I recently bought. The clutch doesn't begin to disengage until the very end of the clutch pedal stroke. According to the book, these things aren't adjustable. I have trouble shifting into a gear (sometimes it grinds a little, sometimes it just won't go - my WD with the earlier style trans shifts much better) and I think it is because the clutch isn't disengaging all the way. I'm considering playing with the linkage (lengthening the clutch rod), but I don't have a lot of threaded material to work with. This tractor is scheduled for a tear down / restoration this winter, meanwhile I'd like to keep using it till then.

Any insight, advice, etc. would be appreciated.

Good Day!

Could be many things causing your problem...

I would lean toward expecting to find a bad clutch plate, warped pressure plate, or just plain a BAD pressure plate....

Be sure to get the 9 spring pressure plate, when you replace it.!! I suppose you could have 3 springs added to the six spring set up, but I like the 9 as it comes....won't slip, and has been flawless for about 15 yrs now....!! I would suspect that a "finger" has started to wear on the old pressure plate....If it was a "diaphram type", I would say it was a failing diaphram...I don't think AC ever used that type, tho... Hope ya can get it thru the rest of the season.. Pulling the engine is not all that bad of a job, for a clutch, tho... Ron.
