My A leaked coolant when I started it this spring. Its coming out through the acess hole under the fly wheel. I don't know where to begin. It starts and runs fine, but no coolant. Do I pull the head? Help

To Dave T (or anyone else); I split my IH A to replace one of the frost plugs. I fixed that problem. The water leak (just above the clutch) made a mess of oily goo. Prior to spliting the A the clutch wasn't fully working. None of the goo got into the clutch as far as I can tell. I have cleaned everything as much as possible without pulling the clutch completely off. There was a lot of debris (goo) around the bearing which I figure to replace. Any suggestions about the clutch itself? I don't want to split it again in the near future. I should also mention that the clutch was working great prior to the leak.

I think perhaps you had a cold winter, and your antifreeze wasn't strong enough. You have a couple of frost plugs behind the block above the clutch. Regardless, you'd have to split the tractor to get at it and replace the frost plugs. It would be a good time to check condition of clutch and replace the pilot bearing too.....Dave
