Does anybody know how I can adjust my clutch on my 2n. When I go to put in gear it kinda grinds occassionally is this a little normal or do I need a new clutch. If so can I do this myself or should I take it in and how much do you think it would cost me. Maybe I can adjust it. Looks like their is an adjusting nut near the back brake but looks like it might already have been adjusted.

I believe the 2N adjusts the same as my 9N. The round clutch rod that comes off the clutch pedal shaft and goes forward to the lever on the bell housing is the adjustment mechanism. The rear end of that rod has a threaded clevis on the end. Screw it in or out to achieve the proper freeplay. Mine was all the way up and I still had excessive freeplay. I thought the clutch was probaly shot but I discovered the drive pin that holds the front lever onto the bell housing shaft was sheared allowing the lever to rotate on the shaft. Check that for looseness - look hard - it can be difficult to detect and it doesn't take much to mess up the freeplay.

For what it's worth, I can tell you what the I&T FO-4 manual says under "adjustment" of the clutch for 9N-2N. You probably already know all of this and more, but just in case ...

"Free travel of the clutch pedal is the only adjustment necessary for proper orientation of the clutch. Free travel is the distance the clutch pedal can be pushed down before resistance is met (the moment the clutch release bearing contacts the clutch release levers). Pedal free travel should be 3/16 inch (4.8 mm), measured between top of pedal and pedal stop. [There is reference to a figure here, that I can send you if you want it.] Pedal should have an additional travel of 1-9/16 inces (40 mm) before pedal contacts brake pawl arm. To adjust the clutch pedal free travel, disconnect the clutch rod clevis [shown in figure] and turn the clevis to lengthen the rod (increase free travel) or shorten the rod (decrease free travel)." That's it. Short and sweet, but I don't know if it helps. Like I said, let me know if you want me to send you the picture.

If you have to put in a new clutch, I am SURE (seeing what else you do!) that you can do it yourself!! Of course, you have to split the tractor...Just let me know if you want any advice on that part. LOL

It is not bad but occasionally grinds when putting into gear I hope I dont have to split the tractor. Yikes that sounds like alot of work.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Black Tire Paint - by Staff. I have been fortunate in that two of my tractors have had rear tires that were in great shape when I bought the tractor. My model "H" even had the old style fronts with plenty of tread. My "L" fronts were mismatched Sears Guardsman snow tires, which I promptly tossed. Well, although these tires were in good shape as far as tread was concerned, they looked real sad. All were flat, but new tubes fixed that. In addition to years and years of scuffing and fading, they had paint splattered on ... [Read Article]
