Looks like I might have to put a clutch in my TA. I tried to plow with it the other day(real dry, hard plowing) and in 1st gear it slipped with TA both ahead and back. I am going to have my uncle look at it and make sure it is adjusted right but I am pretty sure it wont be that simple. I think I have a leaking rear main seal(I changed the motor oil and I've noticed that since it has been smoking more--I think the PO had something other than 30 wt in it.). Anyway, I think the clutch job shouldn't be too bad, but I am looking at Bates website and they list 4 different clutch disks for this thing! I am somewhat familiar with the "button clutch". I do a little bit of tractor pulling and my M is believed to have a button clutch in it. It is really hard to feather sometimes and the motor was slightly built in it we think. I really don't like not being able to feather a clutch good. However, as I said, I pull some and want a clutch to hold. My SMTA isn't built by any standards, in fact I would call it weak. However, the plan is to eventually get it to where it will give a respectable showing at the pulls. So.... Which clutch to get? From the looks of it, they have a "stock" full disk, a "standard duty" 4 button, a HD 4 button, and a HD 6 button. Any hints on how to choose? Price varys from $90-135 so I will spend more to get the heavier clutch if I need it. On a seperate note, I have an uncle looking for a 150 hp motor to go into a 400. Anyone know of someone who'd either sell him a crate motor or build his up?? Thanks!! Mike
