I inherited my grandpa's 1949 Oliver 99 some time ago. I just got it back out and had some work to do with it on our farm and the clutch is out! Yesterdays tractor parts dept is telling me they will either have to match parts or get the clutch rebuilt because the clutch is no longer available. Wondered if anyone has done this on one of these?? I would really like to know what I am getting into before I start splitting the tractor!!

Not on a 99,but the last two clutches I've done,Super 55 and a 1020 Deere,I sent them to Clutch Dynamics in Lansing Michigan and had them rebuilt. I think they were $75 each if memory serves me right. I don't see why the 99 would be much different.

I will need to look to make sure but I don't think you split it. Do you have a shop book? That pulley assembly is heavy!I don't remember if they all used the same clutch either! J.

Don't think you split, you just remove the belt drive housing to get at the clutch. Have you adjusted the clutch (not the pedal and rod)? There is a fair amount of adjustment if it hasn't been worn too much and might save a lot of work and cost.

My 90s have a big spiral spring.

How do you adjust the clutch?? I have adjusted alot of semi and 4 wheel drive tractor clutches (versatile), but I cannot figure out how to get to this one.. It looks like the engine, transmission and rearend is in one framework that is nearly solid.. What am I missing??

You are missing the clutch adjustment cover, held on by 4 bolts. Destructions are in the operator's manual for both the 80s and 90s with dimensions for the clutch setting (flywheel to clutch cover face). Half a dozen bolts to loosen and then turn the clutch cover (one way or the other). Simple job.

My Dad adjusted the linkage of ours back in the 1950's and when I sorted it out after I acquired it, I adjusted the clutch as per the book. The book says do not adjust the pedal linkage.

Semi as in a spicer (Eaton now ) clutch. Those are pull type clutches, you are working on a push type clutch. I will look it up but not tonight.

As I said before, the operator's manual is exactly adequate for adjustment details, but not for replacement. Workshop manual would be required for that, if you are needing the extra details. It is 1920's technology (if the spiral spring type) so not that complicated. Just built like the proverbial brick bog.

Would like to talk to someone that's adjusted the clutch on an Oliver 99. Mine has been slipping and haven't had any luck trying to adjust it. Thanks. Don 573-445-0118 don@mppa.net
