Berlin, I think we can safely say that you're tougher than the tractor.

Thanks. Bob and Bernard , It got me good, but I have been very fortunate , had an excellent trauma team , good doctors an the rehab center that I was in is top notch. I got home two weeks ago today and am walking with a cane . I go back twice a week for physical/ ocupational therapy. I consider myself very fortunate to be alive an am very thankful for each new day .

Glad you are up and moving, looks easy to work on the clutch with that big chunk missing from the housing

If that's what a tractor looks like, after it messes with you, I'd hate to see a motorcycle, after trying to get you!

Berlin, I am glad you made it out alive and are recovering. Prayers still being said for you my friend! We lost a very dear friend just over a year ago to a tractor roll over and I witnessed a man get killed by a round baler years ago, neither was a good thing for anyone involved. I am glad you are still with us and I hope you recover to 100%!
God is good, all the time!

Old tractors are a dime a dozen. Good people like you are hard to find. Glad you came out of this mess better than would have been expected.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
