I just got my 1955 Wd 45 in and I'm not famalier with them. I understand they have foot and hand clutch. Can someone explain if they are used for the same purpose. I can barely reach the foot clutch on this tractor and I am over six ftte tall. What gives, Any help is appreciated and andy information about the rest of the tractor would be helpful. thanks in advance

The advice from Duey and Sid is correct- in addition, the foot clutch pedal should have three positions of adjustment- there is a setscrew to loosen, and you adjust the rod on the foot pedal.

thanks guys. I think the problem is the homemade seat on it which does not adjust. the foot clutch is already out in the third position. A previous owner who made the seat must have been one tall fellow.

There should be only about an inch of "FREE" travel measured at the frame level on the foot clutch. Adjust by removing the rod from the forward lever and screwing in or out of the pedal attachment. Also, like Sid said, the seat can be moved forward

The foot clutch or engine clutch stops all power. It is used to change gears and to put PTO in gear. The hand clutch or transmission clutch it used to start and stop ground travel. By using the hand clutch you can stop the tractor ground movement and still have power to the hydraulics and/or PTO . With the hand clutch in there is no power to the wheels. With the foot clutch in there is no power to the belt pulley (if equipped)the PTO and hydraulics. If you look at the pedal you should see some adjustment. I have an adjustable seat on my WD I do not know if Allis Chalmers or someone else made it, but I have seen it on other tractors as well. I do know it was not original on mine.
