530 hand clutch

Report to Moderator

Found a nice looking (1964?) gas Case 530 that supposedly needs the hand clutch adjusted. It slips when in high gear under load. Is this a regular item to maintain and how difficult is it to change out if the clutch is bad? is there anything "special: to look at/look out for on this model tractor? Thanks.

You'll need to remove (dual range or triple range) cover which is just in front of transmission cover. Once removed, you can see the hand clutch assembly. There are pins (when pulled back slightly) will allow you to turn the over-center portion of the clutch (clockwise) to tighten the clutch. Continue tightening until it requires about 25 - 30 pounds of pressure to snap the clutch into the engage position. Do NOT neglect or allow this clutch to slip. Slipping will cause the clutch plates to warp, then you'll need to split the tractor to replace the clutch disks. One fault of this tractor is transferring oil from the torque tube to the rearend. That can easily be corrected by replacing the rockshaft (three point) piston seal. It's a great 43 horsepower tractor.

Thanks. I took it for a spin last night after I posted this. The clutch will slip and you can hold the tractor without stalling with 1 brake on. Can this be corrected by adjusting or will it likely need replacing? the hand clutch does not engage with a "snap". what is the cost of parts (roughtly)?

Overall it looks pretty good, draft-o-matic 3pt. non-powersteering is "tight" looks like all orignial paint. needs seat and seat springs (of course). The hour meter shows about 3500ish if its working correctly. the needle moved but not where it should have been. tires look like original style goodrich's but worn. they are asking 1750.. thanks again for the info.

If the hand clutch plates are warped badly, the hand clutch will NOT release fully. To test this, find a smooth surface, put the tractor in 1st gear, release the foot clutch, pull back on the hand clutch. With the hand clutch pulled back (disengaged position) the tractor should stop its forward motion. If it continues to creep forward, the hand clutch disks are likely warped and will need to be replaced. If there is NO snap when the hand clutch is engaged, the hand clutch is badly out of adjustment. More than likely, a simple hand clutch adjustment will cure the slipping problem. Good luck.

Thanks Roger. It does stop when the hand clutch is disengaged. I'll take it for another spin though. I'd to think worse case (no pun intended) and assume the clutch is bad. What would that cost for parts? roughly Thanks again.

Casepoor. its in North central IN. about 500 miles due west of you.

Adjusting the handclutch is not usually regular maintainance but May need tightening once or twice in the tractors lifetime. It is easy to do but you will need the instructions in a shop manual. It would be hard to explain here without pictures. It is not a big deal.

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
