    Default Ford 1710 wont move

    I have a ford 1710 that i used today for about 10 minutes. I backed it in to where i usually park it and now it wont move at all. I have tried every gear and it doesnt do anything. I can actually shift between all the gears without pushing the clutch in and There is no grinding at all. Is the clutch stuck? I know that the gears would grind a little before when i didnt push the clutch all the way in. There have been no issues at all until now.

    It actually stopped moving after i backed up and noticed that the 3 point arms were down. I had disconnected my disk and forgot to raise them. After i raised them the tractor would not move. 3 point, pto and loader all work.

    What kind of tranny do you have? Is it between ranges or F-N-R?

    I don't have an answer but I'll help rule things out (well actually try to learn from others). The PTO spins so unless you have a double clutch then it couldn't be stuck, right? If you do have a double clutch I wonder if you lost half of it? Or I wonder if maybe the yolk that moves the gears could have broken? Also do you have the synchro transmission? (The one with the gears on the steering shaft or are both of yours on the floor/transmission housing?

    It has the double clutch, not synchro tranny.

    When you move either of the gear shifters do they feel like they are working properly. Can you engauge the pto without using the clutch.

    Both levers feel like they are working properly. Im not sure about the pto, never tried moving it without depressing clutch. Will try that later.

    I've got a 1720. It has the double clutch l-m-h on the left by the seat, f-n-r up by the steering wheel on the left, and right side of steering wheel is 1,2,3,4 gears. How about your 4wd. Is that fully engaged 2wd or 4wd? Can you pull or push the tractor slightly with another vehicle to see if the wheels are locked?

    the 1710 has the two shift levers on the floor. I tried shifting between two and four wheel drive and it didnt matter. I actually had to pull it out from behind the garage with my truck so that i could have it loaded on a flat bed to deliver to dealer. It pulled fine with the truck with both levers in neutral.

    Problem solved. Dealer picked up the tractor and told me that when i installed my coldwater fel the clutch lever was hitting the loader support. This caused the clutch to not be fully released and thus it was constantly on. His fix was to grind out a section of the loader support so that the clutch pedal was free. He told me that the clutch finally wore to the point where it wouldnt grab anymore so thats why it wouldnt shift. He stated that i probably wore off 5 years worth of the clutch.
