    Default 1963 Forson Super Major

    My 1963 Fordson super major with "live power" has a two-stage clutch. Without warning the transmission quit working. There was no smell of a clutch burning up. The clutch pedal has the same feel as before. The shifter will go into gear. The PTO engages and releases when the clutch is fully depressed, as usual. Before I break this monster in half, any idea what could be wrong?

    Pto does work.. but no movement at the wheels when in gear?

    My Guess would be hub of the clutch.. or the friction material is worn out on the tranny part.

    I know the FSM is similar to a ford 5000.. but the 5000 is independent pto.. so I can't help you much there.

    Hop over to the ytmag ford board.. lots ford/fordson people over there..
