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. 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?

Thank you for any helpful responses we are also trying not to spray the clutch disk just the release finger area for now.

      The clutch assy  can be removed from the top.  A clutch coupler sits ahead of the tranny input with 6 bolts at each end, removal allows the clutch splined shaft to slide rearward clearing the pilot bearing [ if not rusty ].

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.

on old stuff like that is dont pay to be waiting on oils to do the job. it takes disassembly and time. and if you would have did that off the bat you would be running it now,lol. plus to free it up you need to be pulling it around. it wont happen sitting there.

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?

...I would suggest  the clutch plate could be relined.......and the flywheel refaced ...a smidgeon   to get it clean........but the pressure   plate and thrust bearing   could present    issues......I guess again.....if push came to shove.....it is the springs that are shot ????

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.

Might want to try ultrasonic or electrolysis on it
