I can't seem to get my clutch adjusted. When I press the pedal it bogs down the engine. I have adjusted it to the book with 1 inch of pedal travel at the top of the pedal. Does anyone have any ideas?

In what condition is the throw-out bearing
Tue Aug 21, 2012 8:53 pm
It's brand new with a new carrier from Steiner. I also replaced the pilot bushing and had the flywheel turned

What happens when you clutch the tractor

Tractor runs great till you press the clutch. When you press it in the engine bogs and will even die.

Have you or someone else looked through the inpection hole while all of this is going on
Tue Aug 21, 2012 9:07 pm
No not yet. Kinda hard when you are working alone. Do you have any gueses on what it could be?
Tue Aug 21, 2012 9:11 pm
At this point, no.

When you had the tractor apart, did you have the clutch shaft out
Or, did you just split the tractor at the clutch housing and engine

Can you shift gears without grinding when you depress the clutch?
Tue Aug 21, 2012 9:55 pm
When I split it I never messed withe shaft besides cleaning it up and putting some fresh grease on it. When I first got it started I was able to shift in to gear with barely any or no grind at all. But it bogged the engine down slightly. I adjusted the clutch a bit cause of the bogging and it was slightly burning of the clutch. I have not gotten it adjusted that we'll since then. I have tried to adjust it quite a few times since then.

You have not commented on the pressure plate assembly and clutch disc. Were they in good condition

Just thinking. Throw out bearing installed backwards? ??But that should squeal like a banshee when you depressed the clutch pedal.
Tractor in neutral. Engine easily starts. Depress the clutch pedal and engine bogs down. Previously same circumstances - also transmission could be shifted with no or very little gear grinding.
If pressure plate was not releasing the disk - wouldn't be able to shift gears.
Either engine is very weak or throwout bearing.

Is the clutch a Rockford or Auburn? Might be a case of mix and match parts.

Clutch is brand new from tractor parts. Com. Throw out bearing came with it. New carrier is from Steiner. Pilot bushing came with clutch.
