    G'day Zsink.
    The clutch pedal clearance that is the gap between the pedal arm and the footplate support pin should be about the size of your little finger 3/8 Th inch no more,I think it has been mentioned by another member ,the Intermediate plate adjustment,Factory setting is 90 thou If you reduce the clearance to 70 thou this will allow the transmission part of the clutch to SEPARATE more and give the Driven plate more clearance.
    You did check the Transmission plate and make sure it was not twisted , warped or cracked ??
    As you have mentioned the tractor has been lazy for a while and everything may loosen up with use and looking at that big brushhog she will certainly be working , just go gently .
    Happy days.
    Hutch.

    Well I've fixed a few of the remaining issues that I had outstanding. The throttle friction disc (cork) was hard and glazed and once replaced the tractor holds RPM's as it should.

    I think the issue is that the gearbox has so much rotational mass that it I just need to let it slow down. If I press the clutch and let it slow down it doesn't really bite in gear at all. The bad grinding was when I was at high RPM with the clutch out in N and mashed the clutch and put it in High range. (ie, driving on a road at a stop with cars behind and wanting to get moving) I think that my clutch / tranny are fine.

    The only remaining running issue is that I get a miss or back fire it I throttle up quickly, bad when cold, not bad at all when warm. Feels like a lean condition. If I play with the choke I can eliminate it. Carb is fixed jet and the tractor runs very well but seems lean...

    Every time I get back on the old stuff I have to retrain myself on the "manual" manual transmission shifting.

    Sounds like you are good to go. Some tractors are just cold collared and that seems 'normal'. On the 801's I always featured off the choke in cold weather.

    I have only used the bush hog. I'm doing other work on the property and I doubt I'll have a use for the others any time soon. I'm looking for a blade or box blade. The machine works very well but I'd love something with a loader. I don't think that the 135 with a loader is what I'm after either.

    Well I really didn't do too much, all the good looks were there, it just needed a bath and some motor parts.
