Help with Case 310B

This is a 1958 310B frontloader/backhoe without the backhoe mounted. It's a dual range. Starts and runs fine but the gears don't work at all. No amount of shifting the 4 speed gears, shuttle or low/drive lever does anything. No clashing of gears. The clutch pedal moves and the clutch rod that goes into the bellhousing moves but I feel no change in resistance nor is there any change in noise. The tractor has been sitting for a few years - is this the dreaded clutch rusting to the flywheel? If so is there any way to fix it short of splitting the tractor?

I had the clutch arm that works the throw out bearing actually break away at the end where the ball is o0ne time. This was on my 300. So I could not work the clutch but the pedal still worked. Maybe something like that could be the problem. Good luck, Steve

Yes that happens. The knob can wear and break off or the yoke socket can wear through. That just negates the foot clutch function. The clutch remains engaged full time without the ability to disengage externaly. The other symtom is the shaft does not turn.

Drive shaft not turning and no spring resistance on clutch linkage?

There is no single malfunction or broken part that can account for all your symtoms other than the pressure plate lever springs being depressed & seized in the disengaged position. I suppose this could be possible if the clutch pedal were locked down for a prolonged period plus rusting of the pressure plate. How likely is that?

Your clutch is not stuck to the flywheel or pressure plate. If so you would not be able to stop the tractor from moving when in gear. I would guess the center of the clutch disc is sheared, or the linings are stripped off the disc. Bad News!! You gona have to split her. Not a lot of fun with the loader on it. No hand clutch on that setup so thats out.

Yes I saw it. Paint is as yours, my grill screens are not dented, but the bottom back of the fenders have the usual dings. It's a hand clutcher also, with 18.4x34s. and PS. Hopeing to get it together this summer. I need to win the lottery. Had a long time customer call me a bit back and wants me to buy his Big 411 NF and his 711B NF at a really good price. If I buy them there goes the budget for the 930. PS both these tractors are still daily workers.

If the clutch rusted to the flywheel it would only grind as the tranny input shaft would not stop turning I would guess something is broke,center of the clutch plate,shaft,gear, shifting fork ect,,,sounds like you will have to split it, good luck CNT

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Tractors and Farming - by Dave Gohl. I never thought I'd live to see the day, when I could call myself a farmer. What allows me to say this? Well, when our family moved to our 20 acre site near New Prague, Minnesota, I had one thought in mind. You guessed it, farm it somehow. A little history is in order. In my younger days, mom, dad and my brother made frequent visits to dad's youngest brother Pete, who took over the home farm from grandpa MIke. It was the typical set-up, milk cows, pigs & chickens. In the winter, we'd play ... [Read Article]
