9n clutch

tom My clutch sometimes works fine

and others wont engauge or disengauge you can work the rpms and it will finley cut loose but still a little scary sometimes and this problem happens with no attachment or pto shaft on it

Jim Loveridge You must have missed the reply's to your post from last Sunday. It's a common problem with these old tractors. Moisture gets onto the clutch and the pressure plate or flywheel rusts up and the clutch disk sticks to it. One way to deal with it is to block the clutch pedal down when the tractor isn't in use. But in the long run the clutch needs to be replaced. There is a drain hole in the bottom of the clutch housing with a cotter key in it. The cotter key is there as a jiggle pin to keep dirt from plugging the hole. Once it's broken loose, you might try holding the right side brake down and in third gear slipping the clutch to try cleaning the surfaces.
Ed i backed mine up to a good size tree & reved her up,,,slipped the clutch a about 6 times...worked great ever since,,,by sli[ing i mean i let the clutch out to were it started taking hold,,,rode the clutch,,,,dont over do it & becareful
