Cluch for John Deere 4040
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Very little free play on clutch pedal on John Deere 4040
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

What is problem? Quad rang transmission, or power shift? Quad range has conventional clutch, which free play is adjusted with the clutch linkage.

How much freeplay do you have?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Free play is basically clutch peddle right out very uncomfortable to operate .That said ,clutch dosen't slip.Tractor has a 158 loader use it for loader work and pulling a rotary mower conditioner.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

As Long as clutch will release, you can freeplay, or lower pedal , to see if it is easier to operate. Th e only thing you don;t want is no freeplay, which can keep pressure on the clutch parts.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Their dosen't seem to be an adjustment on clutch rod,just the hex bushing with the offset hole in itself.but this doesn't change peddle very much . Maybe clutch is wore out?

You have had the valve off and checked all the springs?

If,so I would expect the clutch to be worn excessively.
