I need to replace the clutch in my 1850 Cockshutt and I was wondering if I have to split the tractor or remove the engine. I"ve been told to replace it both ways and I was wondering which one is the correct way.

Because the tractor has a full frame, you can remove the engine to do a clutch job. Can't remember how you get the PTO shaft out, but might want to get an IT manual so you don't break anything.

Have never seen a situation where splitting a tractor was preferable to not splitting it, unless its the only way to do a repair.

You can split a Oliver but the bolts that hold the engine frame to the rear end are 12 point and they are one SOB to break loose.

Don't have to split it,don't have to take off the grille. Just take off the fuel tank,pull the radiator,pull the PTO long shaft out the pressed steel plug in the back,take the chain coupler apart. If you need to know how to pull that PTO shaft,somebody can let you know. All you need is an o-ring pick,a pair of snap ring pliers and a piece of half inch threaded rod.

Pull the engine, it not as tough as it sounds once you get into it and although i never split one i would think easier. Split means your gonna have to move one piece forward or back. I removed rad and front grill when I did mine, not many more nuts and bolts and gives lots more room. Rocko.

Everyone here is assuming your model has the hydra power or hydraul shift option and if thats the case yes, pulling the engine is the way to go. I have an 1850 that is delete of the hydra power / hydraul shift option and has a "straight shaft" connecting the engine to the tranny. Some models were equipted this way from the factory as a bare bones option only allowing 6 forward / 2 reverse gears. In this case the straight shaft only needs to be removed as well as the long pto drive shaft from the rear of the tractor to access the clutch. If your tractor has this option you do not pull the engine. Good luck.

I did a clutch on my 1850 a few years back. I pulled the grill, just a few bolts and the engine pull was that much easier. Also look close at the tube the throw out bearing rides on. Mine was worn clear off. Its easy to replace and a dealer item. Look at your chain coupler, easy to replace while the motor is out. Good luck. PK
