Maybe possible a clutch disc is “stuck” on the drive shaft.

Your have to gain access to the throw -out bearing area and depress the clutch and see what your problem is. A fix maybe is a little penetrating oil on the drive shaft, emery cloth the drive shaft surface or maybe a tap on the clutch disc with a soft object.

This is a link that John *.?-!.* cub owner posted on a clutch asm. http://members.aol.com/pullingtractor/clutch.htm
Hope this helps. If it doesn’t they’re many people that read this forum that will figure out your problem.

The clutch disk may be stuck to the pressure plate from setting a long time. This is not too uncommon. Sometimes they will break loose from running them. You might have to dis-assemble it to break it loose.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I soaked the shaft with penetrating oil lastnight and will go work on it some in a little. Thanks for the link if I have to take it apart I will probly upgrade to the alum clutch disc while I have it down.

The clutch on my 73 stuck this summer. It hadn't been all that long since I had run it, but it was stuck pretty tight. To get it loose, I finally had to unbolt the engine and slide it forward to get a little working space. After I got it pried loose, everything cleaned up OK. Since the fiber disk wasn't torn or otherwise obviously damaged, I just put it back in. It seems to be fine.

Now I try to more careful to leave it with the brakes locked (which holds the clutch disengaged).
