140 Clutch Question

3658 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  nick4030
I was reading through the service manual for the 140 (30,000 and up) got to the section on power train and so I went out to look over my tractor and make sure I could find everything and I certainly cannot find the throwout arm and bearing.

I've searched here and on WFM and cannot find anything definitive. Did JD get rid of the engine disconnect on the later model 140's? Any body know why?

First, what year is your 140? I assume it is a H3 model or an H1?

The late model >30,000 have the clutch / trany/hydro / engine disconnect. The functionality is different between the early model <30,000 and the late model >30,000 140 H3's. Some say by depressing the clutch only returns your throttle arm back to Neutral. I think it actually disengages the engine from the hydro/trany, just based on how much easier it starts the tractor when depressed, and during shutting it down takes the stress off the engine.
