Chris,

Unfortunately too much going on the next few days or I might look for that elusive bridge. My neck and shoulder should be better next week too. 

I wasn't going to actually burn it off, I was going to get it cherry red with the hope it would require less persuasion. No room for a grinder and I think the sparks would probably give me a bigger beard trim than the torch. The friction disc is at the very end of the splines of the shaft. I hate to think of pulling the engine when all it would take is one solid whack, but it may come to that and I think I found a way to do it on the trailer if it need be.

I got the clutch out yesterday by getting the plate red a couple of times and then beating on it for about an hour. My son and I took turns. This was right up there in terms of worst jobs. Heat, smell and mouse crap! Today is supposed to be the last day of 100 degree weather, It's so smokey here the whole state must be on fire. It was snowing ash yesterday and this morning. I've not seen that here before.

I'm needing the best place to buy them. It also says in the parts book that there was a standard version and a heavy duty version of the clutch. Can anyone tell what I have? I have steiners looking for the parts and my local napa said they could rebuild it the clutch, but they haven't seen it yet. I spent about 90 minutes at least pressure washing and chiseling out the crap in the pressure plate and I didn't get it all out all out either. it was like cement. I'm going to get an estimate from napa tomorrow on a rebuild.

Yikes! You did good hanging in there, getting this clutch apart. Not good that your state is on fire! Stay safe!

without the hood being drilled for the hood latch catch i would say this is a low profile tractor. it looks that it was kept on the machine using 4 bolts rather than the more obtrusive sticking out hood latches.

I got the clutch in a week or so ago, the throw out bearing was a bit difficult to install. Instructions said to replace in the reverse order it was removed. I instead installed the clutch, bolted it up, then found there was a shortage of room up there to get the throwout bearing and the holder in together. So they went in separately and used the clutch pedal to push them together. It took a bit of time to get back to this project, but now everything is back together. 

Today my son and I took the crawlers out of my driveway( they were still on the trailer) and over to the property where they will be used. The crawler started, clutch worked, ran fine, steered great. We used the one that runs to pull the one with the blade that doesn't run off the trailer and into it's storage spot. I was worried that the steering might be stuck, because I couldn't test it on the trailer, but it worked fine. It will be a fun little machine. Hopefully I'll have time the next time I'm up there to make a short video of it moving around. Thanks for all the help and advice.

Greg!

Awesome! What a great feeling after all that work under the machine! You guys did real good! And now have a good working tractor!

Post some pictures when you get a chance. I am still suffering with back problems from being under the TD6 working on the diagonal brace this summer. :( so not much sleep lately. But hope to turn the corner on that soon and get things ready for winter.

Regards,

 Chris

Thanks Chris, this crawler really wasn't that much work. It was my lack of time and the poor place I had to work on it that made for the most problems. It easily could have been so much more work if the engine was bad or the steering clutches were stuck. I'm thankful for the help my son gave laying under there as that clutch was one foul mess. It's all worth it now. As for pictures I might get my son to make a short video of it running around. It now resides a little over an hour away from home so that won't happen immediately, but it will be on my list.

Chris, Yours will be also when your back starts feeling better and you can get it done. I'm now starting on the other T4 as T4Mike has many of the front end parts I need. This  machine(has the blade) is going to take more work to get going. I think it will steer because when we were towing it around it would try to turn. So that would be good as parts in there might be hard to locate. I did get the motor unstuck, and the clutch is clear of mouse nests, so it does have a good upside.

Greg,

 Sounds like you are gathering parts to get the other T4 operational too! I did two tractor (Allis WD's) restorations back to back a couple years ago. Was fun and a lot of work. But rewarding too.

Good luck in the hunt for parts. Keep us posted. I like the look of your low profile cats!

Regards,

 Chris
