Clutch adjustment issues

Postby Zdalrymple908 » Tue Jun 11, 2019 4:45 pm

Hey I’m working on a 154 lol boy. Replaced clutch/brake retainer and nylon pucks because the old retainer snapped and broke.

Put the new one on and put the screw back on, adjusted it to approx .10” and adjusted the clutch rod so there is about 3/32” between throw out bearing and clutch fingers.

Problem is even in neutral it acts as if it’s under load and won’t move and clutch begins to smoke/heat up. Never did this before the retainer broke

Something locked up behind the clutch/towards tractor rear end?

Engine off, tractor in neutral, you can roll the tractor by hand?
I have an excuse. CRS.

What pin is in the flywheel where the pressure plate mounts? If a hd single wall roll pin is used it’s flexing when the clutch pedal is pushed your losing movement.

Never had a problem with shifting first and reverse? Being it might not roll in neutral it could be in two gears at once jammed? A broken first and reverse fork could do that. Just a rough guess with all the facts not being in yet.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

When my 1st/Rev fork broke, it was stuck in reverse, but when the stick was in "1st", the tractor wanted to stall when I let off the clutch, but the moment I moved it back to reverse, I was able to go in reverse. Mine also broke when I was went from Reverse to 1st. I think if I were you I'd take a look at the forks and see if one is broken. I've read where the ball can brake off the bottom of the shifter, and also the rotator cup can brake away as well.

To adjust the clutch it’s .090” between the fingers and the throwout bearing. Then it’s .010” between the flywheel and pucks.
