Hello all, I'm back for more help. I'm trying to figure out why a clutch is grinding (cluch pushed do the floor and trying to put into gear) on a '74(ish) 1614 powerking. We put in a new clutch disc, new throwout, new fingers on the pressure plate and tried moving the flywheel in and out but it is still grinding. If you stand on the clutch the transmission is still engaged enough that, on level ground, the tractor will still try to pull. I took two plugs out of the bell housing and noticed that the forks are not against the throwout when no one is pushing the clutch. There is about 1/8" to 1/4" gap. could that be the cause? If it is, do you just have the fork for the throwout built back up? This is on my grandpa's machine so I don't really have any pictures to show you all. He just traded for a 2418 that is grinding also. I don't think he has dug into it but I could be the same issue this one is having.
Thanks for any suggestions!!!
