Parry,
Welcome to the forum.

I truly hate having to sorta jump on a brand new member on their first post but........it's my job, I'm afraid. :lol:

At the top of every forum on this site, you will find what we call a STICKY message because that message stays put. The sticky has the title READ ME FIRST PRIOR TO POSTING. Each Sticky tells you what that forum is for and how to use it. We ask all new members to check out those stickies first.

This thread belongs on the main Colt, Case, Ingersoll forum and I am going to move it there. Then I will have one of the MODS delete it from this forum once we see you post a reply in this thread again.

So now.... let's move on to your questions.


On this site, we have an extensive library filled with manuals. Go to the LIbrary area in the middle of the Board Index page and click on SERVICE MANUALS , then click on PTO CLUTCH SECTION. Most likely, your tractor is equipped with what we call the EZ ADJUST clutch. Click on the red icon for that model and read, read, read,

New clutches are available from one of our resident dealers but they can cost upwards of $500.00. Your clutch may only need an adjustment and the manual tells you how. BUT.......perhaps it needs to be rebuilt. New parts are also available. Here's the problem. None of us are there at your house to see what it is you are working with. All we can do is point you at the manual first so that you become acquainted with your clutch. Try adjusting it. If you cannot get the adjustment to hold, then you are going to have to dismantle the clutch entirely so all the parts can be inspected. Good photos can be posted within your thread and we can give you opinions on what we see there.

The rest is up to you. If you own one of these tractors, then it is mandatory for you to master the clutch adjustment process. Practice is what it takes. No one ski's like a PRO the first time they strap on a pair of boards. It's the same thing with these clutches. There's a learning curve. :thumbsup: Thanks for joining.

When one has problems adjusting these it's tempting to 'just get a new one and be done with it".

the catch 22; New ones must be dismantled to instal. thus must be readjusted. Be, jst course of action in my opinion, Try an adjustment. If that is ineffective, dismantle and inspect, replace the worn parts, . Now you're ready to adjust, just as if you had bought a new one, but with a LOT less spent.

Just go to the files Tom referenced. Read them, read it again. Then get your hands dirty!
