it has the two holes. Does that mean that it has a double clutch?

Yes it is a "Live" (Double) clutch. It will come as a complete assembly, usually, you will also need pilot and thrust bearings. Watch the thrust bearing as the original was a double row of ball bearings and the replacement is a single row. This makes the bearing much thinner and the operating levers on the clutch will foul on the bearing carrier. I made a spacer to go behind the bearing and bring it forward to the correct position on mine.

Clutches are available here in England but should also be available in the US. You can also put new plates in but I have found this to be false economy as the linkage will be worn and you have to have the proper tools to rebuild and set it up.

The easiest way to see if you have a "Live" clutch is to look at the clevis where it goes into the clutch housing. If it has one hole, not a "Live" clutch, two holes = "Live " clutch.

If nothing turns in the gearbox then suspect clutch. They are not too bad a job to split with jacks and blocks as long as you take your time and jam the front axle with wedges to stop it flopping from side to side.

Check that you have about 1" free play in the clutch pedal. The clutch may be bad but it would still turn the PTO if it had no load on it.
