Hand Clutch for CA

The hand clutch in my CA slips BAD. So bad that it won't pull itself up hill. The PTO still runs and doesn't slow down, but the tractor stands still! I know there is an adjustment, but I can't get it to move. My question is, where can I find a complete hand clutch for it? Is the tractor even worth fixing? It's complete, runs good, the hydraulics work good. I haven't been into it, at all, so I don't know what I need. Are these hard to change? Or, should I just get rid of it and find something else? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance, Todd.

Todd, most likely if you persist you'll win in getting the adjustment ring to move for you. When you do it'll likely fix your problem without any further ado. You just have to soak and jar it until it gives up, and it will if you hang in there. It doesn't take much turning of the adjuster usually to bring one around, even one that will hardly pull itself now. Of course, as always, there's a chance it has gone too long this way and is gone but adjustment is certainly your easiest way to find that out before you get into the heavy of changing it out for that's no picnic. God Bless.

The hand clutch isn't hard to repair, just a royal pain. The final drive must come off and it is heavy. You will need a service manual, the IT one is good enough. Some parts are available new. I had mine overhauled at a local clutch shop. I would not recommend getting rid of it. I use mine all the time while brush hogging.

I am not much on CA hand clutches. You will have to get this information from someone else. I will tell you that a CA is a fine tractor. With more HP, 4 speeds, and the hand clutch, it is the best of the B, C, CA line. Never get rid of it, fix it. And know you have a fine tractor.

Today's Featured Article - Field Modifications (Sins of the Farmer) - by Staff. Picture a new Chevrolet driving down the street without it's grill, right fender and trunk lid. Imagine a crude hole made in the hood to accommodate a new taller air cleaner, the fender wells cut away to make way for larger tires, and half of a sliding glass door used to replace the windshield. Top that off with an old set of '36 Ford headlight shells bolted to the hood. Pretty unlikely for a car... but for a tractor, this is pretty normal. It seems that more often than not they a ...
