I need your help again. My MF 231 has 525 hours on it and the clutch chatters pretty bad. Is is probable that the clutch is bad with these few hours? I tried to adjust and it helped a little. Thanks in advance for your comments. Allen

Does the chatter stop or get less when you depress the pedal?
It could be a dodgy thrust bearing.......

I have switched the valve from remote to 3 point operation before. Then forgot to move the control lever from constant pumping to the normal 3 point operation position. The first time I did it I was getting a loud chatter noise from the clutch area and I thought something was going on it. Now I know what to do if I hear it.

Just a thought. Its hard to believe you would have clutch problems with only 500 hours. I have over 2000 hours on mine and never have touched the clutch.
