Traded for a pretty nice Cockshutt 540 everything works but it has a loud screech coming from the clutch/front shaft area.Sounds like maybe a bearing or the PTO and drive shaft rubbing each other?

Ours has been back in service for about 10 years and it is a loader tractor. Lots of clutch use. Good luck. Let us know what you find.

While this may have been the bread and butter of the belt work in the past (since this is what made the money on many farms), the smaller tasks may have been and still can be its real claim to fame. The thresher would bring in the harvest (and income) once a y
