‘47 Clutch

Postby trekrider69 » Tue May 14, 2019 5:20 pm

Work on the Cub has been slow, but I’m getting a few things done. Front rims are painted and curing, new 90w in steering box and transmission. Engine oil and filter have been changed. I have the final drive pans off and soaking to clean the inside. What lube that was in them looked like 150w and black as coal.

Now my clutch question, I have the free-play if I hold the pedal up and 1/8” gap for the TO bearing. But the pedal falls forward and the TO bearing lays on the fingers. Should the pedal stay up touching the foot pan? I have not checked the finger height yet.

Hi,
The clutch pedal and the brake pedals are supposed to have return springs under the platform. There are 3 springs. The return springs holds the pedals up against the platform.
TM Tractor has new springs.

http://www.tmtractor.com/new/cl/864fp.htm

Below are pics of where the springs go, there is a small hole in each pedal for one end of the spring, and notches in the platform for the other end of the spring.
The pic is of a brake pedal, but the spring is the same as the clutch pedal uses.

You may need to clean the dirt out of the notches to hook the spring in it.
To install them, I connect the pedal end of the spring to the hole, then use a vise grip pliers on the straight area of the spring just ahead of the rear curved end. Get the pliers tight, the springs are sort of tough to pull. Pull the end to the rear and hook it in the notch.
The 2nd pic shows one notch in the platform, above the hole in the pic. :)

Thanks Glen. I thought there should be springs, but I didn’t see any and no holes. I will have to get 3 springs ordered.

Being a weany female, I am unable to stretch those springs with brute force to get the end in the platform hole. I hook the spring into the pedal first, as well. I then use a long, flat-blade screwdriver: hook the spring over the shaft of the screwdriver, put the tip of the screwdriver into the hole and carefully pry back, stretching the spring and let it slide down the shaft until it is at the tip. Then maneuver it into the hole. It usually takes a few tries, but is the only way I am able to do it.
