I have read several posts about stuck clutches but I can't seem to figure out what is wrong with my 9N. I just purchased the tractor a short while ago and when I first got it there weren’t any problems. But shortly after that it will not go into gear, it just grinds. I can fiddle with it (jam into gear and slam on the brakes) and then it goes into gear smoothly but wait 5 minutes and it will start grinding again. My only guess is that the clutch is stuck or maybe something is not adjusted correctly. I have adjusted the petal to depress the clutch all the way back. I also just changed the hydraulic fluid and it was milky. So maybe the clutch is sticking because of the water?? Or is it stuck?? I don't really want to split the tractor but I want to fix it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Graham, First off your clutch does not have anything to do with your hydraulic oil. The clutch is a dry clutch and is enclosed in a bell housing. I have seen the clutch disk splines stick on the trans. input shaft if the shaft is rusty but that usually happens when the tractor sits for a long time. If your adjustment is correct I would have to say your release bearing may have siezed up and ground off the fingers of the pressure plate in which case you are going to have to split the tractor. By jamming it into gear you are going to break a tooth or three in the trans. and believe me its alot easier to replace the clutch than to rebuild the tranny.

Thanks for your help. I thought it was a wet clutch? When I open the timing hole cover I see hydraulic oil all over the flywheel??

There's your problem... you have a sticky clutch.. not a stuck clutch. Most likely you have a leaky tranny input shaft seal. And you are alos probably overfilling your tranny sump.

We like to only fill with oil till fluid will dribble out the lowest hole in the round side inspection cover.. that keeps oil from puddeling at the tranny input seal, and axle seals.
