Report to Moderator

my dad has a ford 3000 and the clutch is stuck in the release position. when you step on the clutch pedal, the clutch rod just wants to bend and the bell crank wont move. this leads me to believe either the bell crank is seized or the throw out bearing is stuck on the input shaft collar. my question is there any way to access the clutch area for a visual inspection? if you remove the steering box, is there an opening to the clutch area i am an automotive master tech with 25 years experience but have not done much work on tractors. any help would be appreciated

thanks

First, disconnect the clutch rod and make sure the cross shaft is not siezed in the clutch housing. If it is, I'd get it freed up without further disassembly. It should rotate somewhat freely until the release bearing contacts the clutch fingers. You can access the clutch from the top as suggested, but you can't fix much of anything from there. Splitting the tractor is the best access to the clutch, and you don't have to remove 1/2 of the items the other poster claims. I could split a 3000 in less time than it would take me to get the tank and steering box off it. And then if it needs clutch work, it needs to be split anyways.

Yes-Unplug the wiring harness in front of the fuel tank, shut the fuel off,disconnect the fuel return, remove the bolts that fasten the fuel tank bracket to the back of the head, remove the tied rods, remove the four half inch bolts that hold the steering box to the clutch housing, go through the steering wheel to the housing with a suitable rope, chain, belt, etc and lift the whole unit intact off the tractor. You would be advised to remove this if you were going to replace the clutch anyway, so, you will be that far ahead of the game. Good luck.

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
