Clutch

Postby Mr Joshua » Tue Aug 21, 2012 8:46 pm

I can't seem to get my clutch adjusted. When I press the pedal it bogs down the engine. I have adjusted it to the book with 1 inch of pedal travel at the top of the pedal. Does anyone have any ideas?

It's brand new with a new carrier from Steiner. I also replaced the pilot bushing and had the flywheel turned

Tractor runs great till you press the clutch. When you press it in the engine bogs and will even die.

When you had the tractor apart, did you have the clutch shaft out :?: Or, did you just split the tractor at the clutch housing and engine :?:

Can you shift gears without grinding when you depress the clutch?

When I split it I never messed withe shaft besides cleaning it up and putting some fresh grease on it. When I first got it started I was able to shift in to gear with barely any or no grind at all. But it bogged the engine down slightly. I adjusted the clutch a bit cause of the bogging and it was slightly burning of the clutch. I have not gotten it adjusted that we'll since then. I have tried to adjust it quite a few times since then.

You have not commented on the pressure plate assembly and clutch disc. Were they in good condition :?:

Just thinking. Throw out bearing installed backwards? ??But that should squeal like a banshee when you depressed the clutch pedal.

Tractor in neutral. Engine easily starts. Depress the clutch pedal and engine bogs down. Previously same circumstances - also transmission could be shifted with no or very little gear grinding.

If pressure plate was not releasing the disk - wouldn't be able to shift gears.

Either engine is very weak or throwout bearing.

Is the clutch a Rockford or Auburn? Might be a case of mix and match parts.

Clutch is brand new from tractor parts. Com. Throw out bearing came with it. New carrier is from Steiner. Pilot bushing came with clutch.
