I searched the archives to see what other posts you had on the M clutch questions. Other than some wobble with the shaft through the clutch housing casting, are you having problems with engagement?

When the pedal is pushed down, it only disengages about 1% of the time. I often have to start it in gear to play with it, and that isn't too smart! A new clutch was installed when the guy restored it and the flywheel was even turned. I think he didn't get it in or lined up right, but I just can't find anyone to fix it, and the next time I get "down on the ground" it will be in a box. I'd do it if I could, because I really like the tractor. If you click the link and see the pictures, you'll know why. I can't believe the fix it that difficult, but I can't find anyone in my area to do it, even for good pay.

Nice looking tractor. I just fixed a M that did the same thing, sometimes worked sometimes not. I bought it and was sitting for 2 years. I took the clutch out throught the belly. Turns out the clutch looked like new, but it was to big in diameter, it was rubbing the fly wheel. I took a sander to the edge and sanded it down just a little and put it back together, works fine now. Clutch disc was just little over sized for some reason. Hope you get it fixed!! Good luck

Now I have never worked on a M clutch, but a man out the road had a 140 that acted about the same way. Everyone told him the tractor would have to be split. It would up that one of the pins that hold the clutch fingers on had worked halfway out. I was able to fix it through the bottom of the bellhousing. Might be something to check.

Have you lenghtened the clutch shaft between the pedal and the lever?

Yup...tried that. A local ex dealer mechanic say it's inside, but he won't fix it for me. Money no longer talks!!!

Sounds as though the clutch disc may be in backwards. Maybe!
