When I pull back on the lever it doesnt stop the track. It bites a little bit, but it's not as responsive as the right side. I really need to get on it to make it turn left. It will turn but it's difficult, especially when I'm going down a hill???Someone said it could be clutch related, what do you think? Thanks Steve

..as the other guy said...check for oil on the clutch assembly...should be none...but if you are pulling back on the lever , and the clutch releases...but the brake wont hold, may have to tighten the brake some.this should be evident if the lever pulls too far back....on older machines which tend to have linkage wear...you cant always go exactly by the book on adjustments....the key is to have the timing right so the clutch releases just as the brake is coming on...so they arent fighting each other...

I don't think it's the brake I tightend up the adjustment bolt and the machine would not move. So I loosened it up a little, and it moves good.
Would the diesel trick work to loosen up a stuck clutch in a 350B, if that's my problem? If so where do I fill the housing, and how do I drain it? Is there a better way? THANKS Steve

I have a 350b and when I first purchased it same difficulty. The seals were bad inside the steering clutch and the faces were soaked with oil; About $1,000 to fix. I would suggest you do a search on this site on steering clutches, Alot of good suggestions. The manual covers the steps to repair. Heavy work, takes quite a while but for those with mechanic experience and tools not a bad job

Today's Featured Article - Good As New - by Bill Goodwin.

Rollins, son of the landowner, used the tractor. In the winter 1985, while in his possession the engine block cracked and was unrepairable. He had told my father ... [Read Article]
