I have a b that just got running. Im very excited! When its running and I push the clutch all the way down it starts to make a loud grinding noise, kind sounds like something hitting the teeth on the flywheel ring gear. By the way, It makes this noise about 3/4 in of travel past the point where clutch disengages the trans. Is this normal?

jpuleo, Had one that sounded like you described. Split the tractor and found the clutch plate in backwards. Put it back together and still had same noise. Split it again and replaced the badly worn pilot bearing in the flywheel and resolved the problem. Dale

i've seen 2 things cause this...first, a bad throw out bearing...2nd, a miss-ajusted clutch that allowed the throw out to go to far in, really made a heck of a racket....must be others have had the same problem , i've seen the clutch ajusting rod cut-&-welded on more than one....by the way, there should be a grease fitting on the throw out bearing, look in the hole on the bottom of the torque tube

It sounds like you have a throwout bearing on its last leg.Best thing to do is split the tractor at the bell housing and check the clutch and throwout.While youre in there I would have the flywheel machined,and install a new throwout bearing with a new clutch and pressure plate.This will save you a big headache down the road and save you from having to split the tractor more than you have to.
