Hi,let's see if we can work together to get to the root of your problem! will try my best to help!

Does the clutch have any freeplay? Does it feel like it is engaging? Does the PTO turn.

It feels like it’s engaging
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Are the gears grinding if you don't push the clutch in and try to shift? Did it quit underuse, or what is the rest of the story?

It seems like the gears go in but the tractor does not go fast at all it almost seems like the clutch stays engaged and I get no speed on it
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Do you have freeplay in the clutch travel? If not the clutch will not grasp the flywheel fully and just slip.

What do you mean by that?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Your clutch pedal has to let the clutch come back all the way, for it to have maximum grip on the flywheel. This is why the pedal has to have a slight amount of slack at the top, called freeplay.

# 8 is the clevis to adjust the freeplay,

Thank you sir I’ll try this tomorrow and keep you updated. Let’s say the clutch does need replacing would you have a diagram for that and torque specs?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

No specs. The tractor has to be split behind the engine, and if you have never done it, a service manual from eBay would be a plus.
