Greetings - I picked up this walk behind a couple of weeks ago from a local rancher. It came with 5 implements. The original motor had been replaced at some point in it's life. I was able to get this one started on the 5th pull. My post is mainly about the drive clutches - the left one continuously drives, and the right one doesn't engage. Do any of you have experience with working on these? Any starting suggestions or tips would be great. If I can get the clutches working, I will then replace both tires which are shot. I'm hoping I can locate replacement tires. Thanks much!

Welcome to the forum. The clutches are just a simple cone set up. I believe there is a manual in the manual section for these.

It's possible the friction material of the cone is stuck to the cup portion of the clutch.
It's also possible the cone part or any of the linkage is rusted to the shafts where they slide to disengage the clutch.

Thanks, guys. I'll look for the manual now. I'll try to loosen them up - take them apart next week.

I would spray down the clutch linkages with some PB blaster (not the clutch discs themselves however) Looks like its been sitting a while and most likely has some frozen linkages. The cone clutches are simple units and rely on spring tension.
Manual can be found in the link below:
You may also find this video useful to see the clutch components moving while they are in the ''neutral position"

That big boy is my favorite! When operating, keep your shoe laces tied!!! If you trip and fall it has the power to drag you through brush, over stone walls, anywhere. The gearing and Ag tires combine to make it a great puller.
What engine does it have?
