if you have all the bolts out they have dowel pins to align the housings, they can fit tight, you will have to pry the housings apart some times

It has been a while, but I seem to remember an extra bolt along the bottom that is easily overlooked.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

6 bolts tranny to torque tube 2 or 3 bolts on the floor pan. Take a chisel and drive it between the tranny and the torque tube and it will split.

Well, I split it today, wow, that's a job. So now I have to find out why the clutch pedal is sticking. First find are two looks like metal caps of some sort. 1/2" in diameter and about 1/2" long. Any thoughts?

Are you also split at the bell housing?

Since you're messing with the clutch pedal, you need to have it split at the bell housing to realign the clutch disk. If you just split it at the transmission, and you push the clutch pedal, the clutch disk drops down in the pressure plate and won't align with the transmission input shaft anymore. Then when you go to stab the tractor back together, you will damage the clutch disk, and it will explode on you 5 minutes after you start mowing. After that, you get to drive out in the field with your pickup truck and drag the tractor back to the parking lot, then push it up on the trailer. Ask me how I know.

Hi,
If you mean the clutch pedal works tight, it probably needs oiling where the pedal base goes into the clutch housing. They can get tight if nobody oils them. The pedal should work freely, and return to the platform edge when you let go of it. There should be a pedal spring under the platform, on all 3 pedals. Maybe you have the platform off though.
Put oil on at the top and let it run down and into the casting.
Here is a pic of the pedal base, the shiny area is inside the casting.
Like he said above, do not push the clutch pedal down when the clutch shaft is out of it. You can only move it in the free play area, should be 1 inch at the top, if it is adjusted right.

There are supposed to be 2 dowel pins that align the cases together between the clutch housing and the transmission. That could have been where it was tight when you couldn't get it apart. They should be there. :)

Thank you for that post, it really helped. I pulled the clutch shaft out and it was caked with crud. Now I have to reinstall it and my hands are just to big. Also thanks on the two pins, I didn't realize there was one on the bottom. Thanks again.... You guys are a huge help....

Hi,
Here is a pic from TM Tractor of the front of the transmission, you can see the 2 dowel pins.
They are at the upper left and lower right. Clean them if they are rusty, so it will go together better, if it was tight when you took it apart.
If one pin is not there, I would get one and put in.

If the clutch pedal was really tight, use some penetrating oil and keep putting it on for a few days so it soaks in, and working the pedal, but don't push it down fully when it is apart, only move it in the top free play area, like I wrote above.
When you put the shaft in the clutch again, you can push the pedal fully down.
When the pedal loosens up, then use oil. :)

Thank you so much for all this help you solved another issues that I haven't talked about which is where is the trans drain plug. I see at in the pic. Also I have everything split the engine, the torque tube and the trans are all separated. Now it's cleaning and reassembly. Thanks again
