Clutch Problem

It seems my clutch is not disengaging when the tractor is cold. I have to to start the tractor in gear, it jumps a little then works fine for the rest of the day :?:

Perhaps some moisture?

Do you of did you have an oil leak at the rear main seal or the oil pump that could have gotton on the disk?

Has the tractor been sitting for a long time?

Once it breaks loose, does it then operate and feel proper?

Oil on the disk, sitting a long time will act like glue. It will have to be burned off with some abuse.

A rough spline or bent spline or a spline that is badly worn will want to try to hold the disk from moving.

Have you ever had it apart?

Just some things to think about.
