TO35 Clutch

Postby TomE » Sun Sep 13, 2015 3:39 pm

I'm looking at a '55 Ferguson TO35. The PTO keeps running with the clutch fully pressed. I'm thinking this will mean a new clutch. Is there any chance of making an adjustment to solve this problem?

Owner said it was live. The PTO keeps running with clutch fully depressed. The serial number designates it's live with a two stage clutch.

Yep, that's live PTO. The PTO will continue to run with the clutch disengaged. Much nicer for mowing and other chores.

Shouldn't it have a two stage that would cut it off?

A MF135 with live PTO two stage clutch releases the PTO when the clutch petal is depressed half way and releases the transmission when the petal is completely depressed. I'm not sure about the TO35 but I suspect it's the same way. I think there is only one adjustment but you can do it without splitting the tractor.

EXCEPT i GOT IT BACKWARDS~~~Clutch depressed half way stops the trans/tractor so the PTO can keep running. Example is when rkunning a bailer, in heavy hay, stop the tractor forward motion so the bailer can keep working. SORRY.

You got to shove the pedal far in as possible, really stand on it to stop both tractor motion and pto turning. It is 2 stage and adjustable . If I remember correct it is done with linkage adg. Until it's worn out then replace time. On 1000 series Fords it's 2 separate clutch disks. Adg. Or release fork wear\failure causes your problem.

Does the To series have the 3 position pto?? One position normal pto operation Second position off and third position ground drive snchronised If so try moving pto lever to opposite position

It is does have engine PTO and ground PTO.

I'll lay a heavier foot on the clutch and see if it stops rotating. It hasn't been used in the past year and may be stuck. Hopefully it will release or an adjustment will help. I am already embracing the idea of a new clutch.

Thanks all, Tom
