I just picked up a 314 and it seems pretty good mechanically except for the clutch. When I move the idler pulley it has a lot of play in it side to side in particular. Doesn't disengage really well to put the tractor in gear and I have a lot of belt clatter. 

 

Does it sound like something needs replacing or adjusting? The pulley itself seems fine its the linkages where the play is. 

 

Thanks,

Doug

The PTO clutch right?  314's are beasts!  

 

The PTO bearing is either AN111537 if it's a Warner or if it's an Ogura

Its an Allis Chalmers 314. Sorry, I should have said that. Its the drive clutch assembly that has a lot of play in it. The belt there makes a lot of clattering noise too especially when the clutch pedal is in.

Get the manual and go through the brake and clutch adjustment from start to finish. I take it that you have a Vari-drive. If so a lot of your issues can be coming from the pulley halves, but adjusting the brake and clutch should go a long way to eliminating the issue.

Thanks Phil. I will take a look at the things you mention. The machine seems to be in pretty good shape mechanically other than that.

BTW, making adjustments on the 300 and 400 series can be fun with that stationary fender pan in the way.

Yeah it looks like at least it would have be raised up and a back wheel taken off to get access to it. I have worked on machines, autos, etc. but this is my first garden tractor. So some models of the Allis Chalmers have removable fenders? That would be a really good design thing.
