47 did not have that, it was added in later years, you will need to oil and oil and oil, patience needed, the pivot is probably rusted in to the housing,

I know they didn't have it on the early tractors, but I read on here some where you could drill a hole and add one of sorts, just not sure where to drill

Well, that’s a different question, thanks for the clarification. I’d just pick a spot that looks workable and drill. Install a grease zero fitting to get the most benefit from it.

Hi,
If your clutch pedal is stuck and won't move at the base, you will need to soak it with penetrating oil probably many times, and work the pedal until it works free again.
It should be free the whole travel, except for the return spring under the platform pulling it up against the platform, and the pressure plate fingers take effort to push.
A 1947 Cub clutch pedal should have 1 3/16" of free play at the top of it's travel, measured at the surface where you put your foot, the 1947 Cub owner's manual shows.

Below is a pic of the grease fitting for the clutch pedal base.

The 2nd pic below, from TM Tractor, shows the clutch pedal base. It fits in a hole made in the clutch housing that is about 2/3 the length of the shiny part of the base. The 1/3 on the left of the pic sticks through the hole.
There is more to lube than is visible from the outside.

When loose, the pedal base will usually pull out of the housing about 1/4", if you do that, you can use an oil can, and work motor oil into the base. Then push the base in when you are done oiling it.
I would do that, it is easier than putting in a grease fitting. :)
