Was repairing a 9n that had set up for a year and had a stuck clutch. I tried the suggestion I found on here from NashRanch and it worked. Just thought someone might want to know if it happens to them.


" Re: clutch problems
The clutch on my 2N sticks also...can't put it in gear with it running. What i do is turn it off and put it in 3rd gear and rock the tractor back and forth. Make sure the clutch pedal is blocked open. It will eventually break loose "

Once the clutch has stuck it will have a tendency to stick again. Slipping the clutch while running will polish off some of the rust. When not in use block the clutch pedal down as ken has stated.

What's a good way to block the clutch down? Mine is an NAA, still it has tendency to stick and I can see how parking it with the clutch down would make a difference. Just have to buy a parking brake.

Use a piece of a board. Stick one end under the radius rod end, on the left side, the other end under the rear axle... and the board over the clutch pedal.
On my 2N, I use a short block of wood between the brake rod and the stop on the inspection plate..:thThumbsU

If I'm going to not use the tractor for a period of time I'd rather chock than use the brake pawl. If you ever taken part one that the brake shoes have been rusted to the drum you'll know why. I'm kind of set in my ways. To each his own.

There isn't any chance that you can have it replaced?

Sure you can replace the clutch. You have to split the tractor then replace the clutch,pressure plate,would also look at the Throw out bearing and seal on the input shaftwhile I was in there. But I would be hard pressed to replace something that might be a perfectly good clutch because it has a little surface rust on it. slipping the clutch a few times while driving will polish off the flywheel once the clutch is broken free.
Some people will not split a tractor and take it to a dealer for repair. Big $$$.
I have freed up many stuck clutches with a can of BP Blaster and a piece of
2X4.
