    Default Clutch adjustment

    Hello All,
    I was reading a post concerning a clutch and I figured I had better get mine checked because it does not feel right. My clutch actually feels good, it is just that it engages very late anbd when I engage the PTO, it grinds a few seconds before going in. I have a loader, not sure what kind it is, but know for sure it is not a factory unit, or a koyker. It has a label on it that I think reads something like AC3 (I beleive they were out of Texas somewhere. Anyhow, the loader looks like a bear to take off if I need to, which I think I do in order to adjust the clutch. How tough is this and what type of tools will I need. The tractor has 180 Hours on it and was bought from an independant that I do not feel did a good job of prepping before I got it. I did all the flushes myself just to be sure and am not sure about how to do the clutch. Do I need to drop the entire loader?
    Thanks all in advance,
    Rick

    Oh Yea, Affordable or other tractor dealers, If you know of any service centers in Southern California, I would love to hear from you.

    When I adjusted my clutch I simply parked the tractor under beam in my barn, you could use a big tree limb, and supported the FEL's weight with a ratchet strap. I then removed the FEL bell house mount to do the adjustment.

    The basic clutch adjustment procedures are actually in your tractor manual. If however you have difficulty in following the Chinglish, there are other 300 series owners here who should be more than willing to help. If for some reason you don't have all four manuals, I strongly suggest you order those that you are missing. Even though the Chinglish is difficult at times to digest at times, I'm glad for the times they've helped me track down a problem that I may never have encountered before.

    Hello All,
    I guess my biggest concern is getting the loader off the tractor, but, and correct me if I am wrong, does not really sound like I have to remove it.
    When you say take the weight off the loader, does that mean having the bucket in the air?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    No, bucket on the ground and the rear bell housing supports braced up in some fashion to take the weight off.

    It is easier to work on it if the loader is off but not necessary.

    Would a Cherry Picker do the job? I have one I can use, how do you move the bracket where it bolts to the bell housing?

    Thanks again all in advance,
