Report to Moderator

Looking for opinions on what a 1969 3400 might be worth.
-gas engine

-4 speed transmission

-tractor hydraulics work

-bucket hydraulics work

-steering working good

-runs pretty good

-needs some finish work on the wiring harness

-bucket and steering cylinders leak some

-NEEDS CLUTCH WORK! (no adjustment left in linkage)

It took quite a bit to make this tractor work but the other day I started it with the clutch pushed all the way in, put it in reverse and was backed out of the shed with the clutch pedal still all the way down before I fully understood what was going on. I don't have the tools for a job like that or a slab to work on so I am thinking splitting the tractor isn't a good idea therefore I am looking into selling it.

I have removed the 735 loader from my 3 cyl 4000 by picking it from the grill guard. it actually balances pretty well at that point; I had to add some ballast to the bucket to make it perfect. This allows the proper up with the front/down with the back and reverse necessary to clear everything. Alternatively, one can block the loader frame and remove the axle mount hardware, then make the front split and roll the trans & rear end away from everything.

Thanks for the help. It looks like the clutch was just stuck. I hadn't seen that before, not without a failed part anyway. This is the first time I was glad I didn't have my shop built yet because I probably would have tore into it without driving it again.

A stuck clutch is a scary thing since this tractor can be put in gear with it stuck. I rolled about a tractor length before I got it stopped the other day. If someone had walked up behind me it could have been very bad.

Not to discourage you but...
It is a big job to get that loader off of that tractor. After you get the bucket and lift arms off you will need to lift the frond end of the main frame up while trying to dip the rear frame arms down to get under the brake and clutch pedals.
And all the while the Radius rods and steering are very much in your way. My pal Kenny had the use of a gantry crane And a forklift and still managed to scratch up the paint putting one of those loaders on. I honestly don't know how you'd do it without overhead lifting equipment.

nice tractor

tough situation

tractor is easily worth $4000+ in my area.

But a bad clutch will have lookers beating you down on the price badly.

try to get it loose.

I'd just split it and fix the clutch and keep it...looks real handy.

Splitting outdoors, I move the rear, keep the front stationary.

Some plywood or boards laid down will be enough to use your jack.

The rear, on its wheels doesn't really put that much down pressure on a jack.

(and if you use Hobo's trailer jack idea on the rear...they make em with wide tires for outside rolling)

Don't let the loader scare ya. A loader is a bolt-on accessory...unbolt it, take it off.....ok, maybe it's not that easy :) but you know what I mean.

I'd have to look at it closely, but that one looks like it might be possible to move the back, just unhooking the loader at the rear....

Not that easy, they are the worst loader ever to take off!

I'll try working it loose. It has been sitting for several months. Not afraid to split it, just have nowhere to do it since jacks don't roll well in soft dirt and I don't have a lot of time for unwanted projects. I would buy the tools if I had a place and some spare time. Heck, I don't really have time for the wanted projects (like that CJ3A in the picture).

Clutch may just be stuck from rust or oil. I wouldn't panic they split easy, hardest part is getting the loader off!

Where are you located, and for a value I don't know.

You should keep it. It's a good one. Get an old pro to come out and help you get the clutch loose,
like driving it around with the loader on the ground, with the pedal pushed down. Or pull a heavy dragging load. Highest gear you can manage. Value depends on condition and location and what else is available.
Probably $3K to $4K.
