Dave, I just helped someone with the same problem. I'm assuming you having no luck in adjusting the free throw correctly, because you can't get any resistance from the clutch. If that's the case, the place to look is at the clutch cover and pressure plate. I shudder to suggest it, but you'll probably have to go back up inside and drop the whole rig again. Either the pressure plate is set too far ahead of the cover (meaning you can push on the opedal and get resistance but the clutch doesn't disengage),or (more likely and easier to adjust) the fingers are set too far forward, so that the throwout bearing never reaches them. If the former, you'll need to adjust the pressure plate clearance and then the fingers. If the latter, just the fingers. I'm at the office (read "no manuals here"), but will check in tonight. If no one else has come up with the correct settings for you, I'll look them up. What year is your M? Apologies for the long windedness. Scotty

Doesn't all that stuff come adjusted when the clutch gets rebuilt? Also, I think my problem is the first you spoke of. I get pedal resistance but the clutch just won't disengage. Is there any chacne that if the gear oil was way low (say 2 gallons versus the needed 13) that the lack of fluid drag would be enough to let the clutch disc turn? Let me know whatcha think.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
