  1. The evapo rust and a vinegar soak are good ideas but the main issue i have is 3 of the 6 pressure plate bolt holes have cracks going through them and im not sure i would trust the casting unless it was throughly cleaned and welded back together, that is why im still looking for a replacement. I work at a peterbilt dealership and spoke to all of our local rebuiders. We can probably save the flywheel at our shop, i have some leads on clutch disks, but the main issue is the pressure plate. No one locally has a source that is willing tackle the project, i am going to start soaking it in some
  2. Thanl you guys for the replies. Sorry i didn't get a notification and jave been away for a bit. I have spoken with john at general gear and he does not have a pressure plate or a flywheel. According to the parts book he has the clutch disk from a 35 that is the same but the flywheel and pressure plate are different, but we are not sure what is different. So far i have not found any parts that will fit and looking at some of the td14 clutches they are different with part of the pressure plate and clutch disk go inside the flywheel. Where as on the td40 the flywheel is flat and everyt
  3. Thank you for the replies. I have spoken with john and he has td35 parts but not td40. We are trying to get part numbers to verify they are the same. The flywheel i can machine at work, i think i have found a local company to relign the clutch disk. The pressure plate is siezed and has been soaking in diesel and atf to try and get it freed up to where we can get it apart to resurface it. If the clutches are the same td40 to td35 we will hopefully find a good replacement instead of taking the pressure plate apart.
  4. Im having a difficult time trying to locate parts can someone help me with part numbers. Im looking for the pilot bearing, clutch disk, pressure plate, and flywheel. Thank you
  5. After knocking out a few projects a head of this one i was able to remove the clutch today and found its FUBAR. I tried to find a parts catalog that would give me part numbers but i haven't had any luck yet. Does anyone know of any other model that uses the same clutch and pressure plate? Possibly a td-35? If i can't locate a decent replacement does anyone know how to disassemble the pressure plate so i can clean it and free it up?
  6. Just an update on the clutch, it is still stuck so far the penetrating oil hasn't freed anything up. We are going to keep try to free it up but more than likely the clutch will be coming out to get disassembled and cleaned.

    Td40 clutch

    Thank you for the responses i have posted another thread on the construction side of the site. We did remove the top cover plate and tried to tap on the brass arms but with no movement we did not want to risk breaking anything with blunt force and will let it soak for now. We are also trying to not spray the clutch disk just the brass arms and pins that they rotate on.
  8. I had originally posted this in the general ih but was suggested to move it over here, by GT&T, so i am reposting the question here. I am helping a freind sort out a large lot of tractors that she inherited. Among them is an international td40 serial number 5694. The engine starts and runs really good for sitting for at least 10 years. The problem we currently have is the main clutch is rusted engauged and will not release we have started soaking it in penetrating oil to try and free it up.

    Td40 clutch

    I am helping a freind sort out a large lot of tractors that she inherited. Among them is an international td40 serial number 5694.

The problem we currently have is the main clutch is rusted engauged and will not release we have started soaking it in penetrating oil to try and free it up. But if it comes down to removing the clutch do we have to remove the engine or will the clutch come out the top of the clutch housing?
