We have a 1949 Case DC that's been sitting for close to a decade inside the barn. The tractor is stuck in gear. Is it possible for us to pull start it and it come free. We had the same problem before and my dad says it came free then.(that was before my time)

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see the tractor will shift into neutral and roll. The clutch plates are stuck to the flywheel. The six volt system is not strong enough to move the whole transmission and start the tractor. Even in neutral.

Because the title of your post is Case DC clutch, I thought you were saying the CLUTCH won't release.

IF you actually mean the gear shift lever will not move from 1st to neutral----IF your dad meant it finally did move to neutral at a later time once before--- Because it is winter time--because the gears slide sideways in and out of engagement--because it is headed down hill where water in the transmission would collect under the sliding gears--because DCs are prone to collect water in the transmission from many years of setting outside. MAYBE YOUR GEARS ARE FROZE IN ICE.

One of the DCs I restored was in a barn in the winter time when I went to get it. It would not roll because the gears were stuck in ice.

The 49 DC hand clutch runs in oil when things are right. IF your clutch is stuck engaged, something is dry and needs oiling. Take the plate off the left side of the clutch and inspect. If things look dry, get an aerosol can of roller chain lube. Douse everything inside a time or two and let it set awhile.

DCs are prone to have a lot of sludge collected in the bottom of the crankcase. If your clutch is the problem, it may be caused by engine sludge getting into the clutch. Do your tractor a favor and pull the side plates on the engine and check for sludge. Also clean the oil pump suction screen.

With the transmission lever in neutral, what are the symptoms. In neutral, will the engine turn over using the starter? will the tractor roll if you pull it in neutral?

It will not start in 1st gear. Tires will skid, or something will snap internally. Were the brakes set? If it was left in gear, w/ the clutch engaged, probably not, but the brakes could be stuck on. My guess is the clutch was engaged & now the disc is stuck to the flywheel.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see thanks. If forgot to mention that tractor was parked in first gear and is slanted down hill slightly. We have thrown around the idea that it is just pressure holding it in.

I would bet the brakes are stuck.
