Hey all ,New guy here joining the forum from Saskatchewan Canada. I recently picked up a fixer upper massey 10. It's spent a lot of time sitting but after some carb cleaning/adjusting, oil change and a new battery, I've got it running really well but it's a work in progress. The Tecumseh has been swapped out for a 10hp Kohler which works well, but they cut a section of the grill out on the side to route a loose fitting muffler (going to eventually swap it out for a stack). Also they cut a large square out of the front of the grill for some reason. So I'm on the hunt for some body parts as I fix it up.
I am having troubles with the clutch though. I can put it in any gear (1-4 or R) no problem if it's off but if it's running it just clashes the gears. I've also noticed that changing the variable speed lever when in use makes no difference in the speed of the machine so I'm going to try adjusting it this weekend if the weather's good. Wondering if maybe the variable speed system being out of adjustment maybe is affecting the clutch not working properly?
Anyways here's a couple pics of the rig as it sits right now
