D17 clutch problem

I have a friend that just put a clutch in a D17. Now the clutch will not disengage. It has full travel, and he took the clutch out and put it in a press to make sure that the pressure plate is working. Any Ideas?

Did you mean that he already split the case and removed the pressure plate and clutch? When tractors (and standard tranny trucks) sit around for awhile, the clutch spline can rust a little around the transmission input spline--especially down here in the hot/humid south. The method I use to free up a clutch: Start the tractor in neutral, (get the tractor warmed up). Shut it down and then start it up in 1st gear with the clutch pedal pushed down all the way. (obviously not in your barn or with something like your lawnmower in front of the tractor) Keep the clutch pedal in and quickly throttle the engine up and down until the clutch spline gets unstuck.

If the fellow already split the case then he can thoroughly clean the splines on both the clutch plate and transmission input shaft. I use sparing amounts of anti-sieze compound on the splines--but not too much that it will get on the clutch/flywheel/PP surfaces.

Let us know what you find out.

It's a new clutch. He rebuilt the engine, and replaced the clutch while he had it split. The core is long gone. He got the parts from an AC dealer. He took it back apart again to check the splines, pressure plate, etc. Is there any adjustment to the clutch?

Sounds like he doesn't have the clutch fork/release bearing setup right and the pressure is not being released. Does the pedal feel "normal" when the pressed down? My pedal (58 diesel) has about 2" of free play. Do you have a service manual? It has all the info you need to install and setup the clutch properly.

Today's Featured Article - Search For Spares - by Anthony West (UK). Following on from the aquisition of the old Fordson F, I was very much in need of spares. As a novice though I didn't appreciate the fact that there were so many Fordson tractors made, that all the other makes seem rare by comparison. As far as I was aware a fordson was a fordson and it was only through trial an ... [Read Article]
