9N Clutch Issues?

Did a bit of a search and I'm still not clear on what the heck my issue is.

Finally got the pull behind brush hog (Ide Inder...weird as heck brush hog) hooked up via the new PTO and an ORC. I guess now that I think about it there are at least 2 issues.

1. When depressing the clutch to activate the PTO and put it into gear it "sometimes" grinds a bit and doesn't want to do one or the other. The higher the RPM the worse the issue. Doing just one is no problem.

2. After getting everything going when I depress the clutch to stop or slow down etc, it feels as if the clutch will not disengage properly and I'm getting some "feedback" from the PTO shaft through the tractor that will continue to drive the forward momentum. Pulling back the RPM's will eventually allow me to stop and disengage.

Is this a clutch issue? I feel no slippage in the clutch once engaged and the clutch lever is making the complete stroke as I pulled the linkage off and compared it by hand. Would appreciate some input.

First error I have already found in my first post is that I am not using an ORC but a 1-1/8" to 1-3/8" adapter. Sorry.

Skirider..... ....yep, found yer "issue", NEED ORC (over running coupler) on the PTO output shaft to keep yer brushhogg centrifical engergy from back-feeding into yer trannys when you push yer clutch pedal down to slowdown to go around the corner of the barn, fencepost, lightpole, ditch bank, creek bank, wifes car (don't ask). $60, (cheap)

ORC's even come as 1-1/8F to 1-3/8M adaptor at the same time. tip: you will haffta shorten yer brushhogs slip driveshaft about 4" to use yer ORC

As for yer "grinding" when engageing yer PTO dog-clutch lever behind yer leftheel, thats semi-normal for dog-clutch. DOESN'T HAPPEN when you lower yer engine RPM's first..... ...Dell

Yeah after reading a bit more I suspected that this might be the problem.

The shaft length won't be an issuse with this pull behind type as I've got plenty of adjustability with the new shaft I had built.

Any idea where I can find a 1-1/8" to 1-3/8" ORC? I've been searching and found nada so far.

Skirider..... ..ORC's are common tractor accessory (and NECESSARY for N's) Bettcha ain't checked IN-PERSON yer local tractor stores have you? Ask a clerk, thats what they're there for. (besides taking yer money) ORC's are also listed by many on-line tractor parts stores too..... .....respectfully, Dell

Well as usual there isn't much that a little money can't fix!!

$59.99 + Tax @ Orschlen's for an ORC and I'll be in business tonight!

Thanks for the help. This forum has been great...and I'll probably be asking dumb newbie questions for quite some time.
