As many of you know, my plow tractor is a Satoh Beaver affectionately known as "the Beav". This little tractor is a beast of a machine and can power through just about anything. In short, you just wouldn't believe some of the things I do with this tractor. Well the Beav is getting to the point where I might actually have to do some heavier maintenance on it. Since 1978 it's been nothing but oil, filters and one new set of glow plugs. You just can't ask for a better return for your money. Heck it still has the original fan belt (although I do have a new one that travels with me to plow days.)
Anyway, I think the Beav might be in need of a new clutch. Parts are no problem. What I need is to pick the brain of someone who has done this before. I hear its no big deal but I get a little standoffish with this tractor because, well, I don't want to screw it up as I depend on it for much more than plowing. If worse comes to worst, I'll purchase a shop manual but they are over $100 for a copy, not even an original. Anyone own one of these that may have done this job before and can tell be what to watch out for? What to do/not to do?
