Well here is my first case. I got a snow blower, wheel weights, and chains included. I am having a bit of trouble with the mower clutch. It wont always engage or disengage. Why is this?

Nice solid Case! About the clutch, often there can be a problem with the switch or with the connections at the clutch itself. I'm not familiar with the Case tractors but some clutches have an adjustment on the gap. If the gap is too wide it may not pull in. You could also have a worn out clutch or a coil that is failing. I'd try checking all the connections first. Someone who has experience with the Case clutch will probably be along soon to help out.

Bob, you need to download the manual per serial # of tractor, adjustment of clutch is in it. You either have a EZ adjust or shims.

One thing most "new" case owners have to get use to is it takes a good push to engage the clutch. Also the proper tension on spring on the mule drive is important too.

 

P.S. I can't stress enough the important of getting the right manuals per serial # of tractor, many changes within same model #'s

Brian, most Case / Ingersoll tractors have a manual clutch, not 12v. :thumbs:

Congrats on the Case. I think you will find it a real work horse.

Also ditto on John@reliable the manuals are your friend.

Be careful Bob. These things are addicting. I also think they reproduce. Mine seem to multiply and I think they are burying my John Deere's. They are great work horses. The hydraulic system is about the strongest you can find on a GT. You don't need extra pumps to run accessories like a loader. Enjoy!

Also on the PTO's. I'm still learning about mine. They do need adjusted due to wear. Its a pretty simple setup. I have manuals for both types now and will scan them here soon to post up if they are needed.
