I have a 54 DC and the clutch won"t full disengage, when I first got the tractor running the clutch was stuck. I got it freed up and have been using it for light jobs like mowing, raking and pulling a square baler. I have it fully adjusted on the linkage and it still won"t disengage when the transmission is in neutral but if you get it in gear it will stop when depressed. Is there any other adjustment or do I need to plan on splitting?

Does it have a foot clutch or a hand clutch?

Foot clutch, the pulley brake is contacting the pulley but the lining is getting pretty worn down

I will give you odds that your pressure plate is broken from heat stress. You might be able to tell by looking through the adjusting holes.

I have seen the adjusting jam nuts come loose and let a finger get out of adjustment. Easy to check through the side cover

There is no internal adjustment like there is with the hand clutch models. It sounds like you have an internal clutch/throw-out problem. Also, your belt pulley brake should be adjusted to rub only when the clutch pedal is pressed all of the way in. It is only there to prevent the transmission input shaft from spinning to keep from grinding gears when shifting. It is not meant to stop the tractor.

My 54 foot clutch DC had this problem. I split the tractor and found the OD of the clutch plate rubbing against crud. Crud gets trapped at that location in a groove.
