My project

Postby bb218hlv » Mon Oct 15, 2018 5:56 am

I purchased this 140 from an auction, machine was locked up. Mice had built a home in the flywheel housing and the Clutch plate is frozen to the transmission spline. I had to unbolt the Pressure plate from the flywheel to get the motor away from the bell housing.
I currently an soaking the spline with PB Blaster , any suggestions on how to remove the clutch from the transmissions ?

I also have checked the motor out and I know the crankshaft rod pins are around .001 out of round, they measure 1.249 so I think in must be original and not re-ground. What is the allowable Out of round tolerance on the rod pins ?

Is it possible to include photos here ?

Mike

Welcome to the Forum Mike!!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:
Welcome Wagon
How to Upload Pictures to a Post
Forum Picture Posting And Other Interesting Things You Can Do
Using the Forum

After your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the free PDF Manuals. They are located via "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals". Through that link, you'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. You'll be able to familiarize yourself with your new-to-you Farmall 140 more quickly. Implement Manuals are limited for that model but are also available. Implements that fit a Farmall Super A, 100, and 130 will also fit your 140, so keep that in mind.

Might also enjoy reading through this thread. Even though it is talking about a Cub, most of the suggestions and practices will also apply to your 140: What to do with a Cub you just brought home

Take some pictures of your tractor and post them. We’d LOVE to see it.

Glad you joined us.
Regards,
Chase

oh wow!! I've not seen a mouse nest and stuck clutch that bad. That sure is a nice looking 140. I wouldn't pull the engine apart until I tried it out first!

I have to confess, I never heard of a 140 before I came here. I blame you guys for me buying my 62 :p and even though it wont start and wont run uphill ATM, I love it!

CONGRATS on your 140, love the front bumper!

Managed to bar the engine over, when I did the 2 inside liners pushed out of the block as they were stuck on the pistons. Good thing is when they pushed out antifreeze came out of the block, so I know it had antifreeze in it. :)

Looks like a repairable situation, probably a good time to check the engine for wear and rebuild as needed.

I agree with Stan. At first glance it looked like the tractor was in better condition (cosmetically) than it is in. Good luck! From looking at the pictures (factory alternator) it is a mid-1975 or newer tractor.......one of the late model ones! It is definitely worth rebuilding!!

Been working on my project, got the clutch removed. Made a puller and used the pressure plate to pull the clutch, put a lot of pressure on the 2 all thread bolts tried to jar it with a hammer but no luck finally put heat on the clutch and that broke it loose.

Decided to take the radiator in to get checked, top tank is full of mice nest :evil: When I got the tractor home the top hose had been chewed almost all the way off, now I find their nest.

Oh wow! I hope your radiator isn't the one IH used while the main supplier went on strike. (see my previous post in the archives about this) Not a huge deal if it is, you'll just have to "make" a hose. If it is the common radiator, then there is a readily available hose. With your tractor being a mid-to-late 70's model; the odds are you have the one that is commonly available. :D
