I am wrenching on the 47, A. It has the electric start and lighting as a factory option. When I engage the clutch I just feel pre sure and when I disengage I get a good loud SNAP. My next thing to try is to adust the crank shaft end play to see if it helps.:wgtt:
Which tractor do you have?
There is only one "snap." It snaps into engagement and back out of it at the forward end of the travel. It shouldn't snap into the rear extreme end of the clutch handle movement.I have the IT manual and am aware on the clutch adjustment procedure. I have had the fork bearing and shaft rebuilt and the the sliding piece in the clutch was very sloppy on the drive pin so I gave it some attention. The IT manual and some people tell me that there should be a good snap to the clutch going both ways. When I had the clutch apart I inspected the dogs, toggles and operating bolts and although I have never seen any of them new they did not look excessively worn to me so I did not replace them. Last night I worked on tightening up the end play of the crankshaft by moving the flywheel to the right and it seemed to help a little but did not solve the problem. So that is were I'm at.
