I have a TO-30. The last time I used it the clutch would not catch properly. The manual talks about lossening the pedal and rotate the clutch pin and retighen the pedal. Is this a one person job? I am NO mechanic

Yes it is. You'll need a drift or pin that fits in the hole in the cross piece to rotate it. An appropriat wrench will do to loosen and tighten the pedal clamp. You're not working on the Space Shuttle. This is a 1940's technology tractor, so don't be afraid to tackle the routine maintenance tasks. You'' surprise yourself with how easy they are. Holler if you have problems.

Hi .... I"ve just had a tweak at this, its fairly simple but you may need three hands. A spanner on the shaft to control the position of that, then slacken off the pedal clamp bolt - Adjust as per manual spec.

If you slacken the clamp bolt just enough so you can turn the cross-shaft clockwise to take out most of the play in the pedal and then tighten the clamp just a little, then check how much play you have in the pedal, there should be 3/8" between the pedal and the foot rest, if it is less than that just give the pedal a sharp blow with the wrench and this will give a bit more play, do this until you get the 3/8" play and then tighten the clamp bolt.
