I got a 1960 fordson power major that needs a clutch.
How hard are they to replace?
How do you support the front and the rear?
Does any one have pictures of the ways to support the front and the rear of the tractor?
How hard are parts to get in America?

This was my grandpa's tractor and been un the family for years and i really like the tractor but always been told cant get parts for it? Where do you get parts for it?
Thanks

I used a 20 ton bottle jack on the rear.



And a heavy duty 4 ton floor jack on the front.





Make sure you put wedges on the front axle before you split it to keep the engine from tilting after splitting.




A google search brings up replacement clutches and while you have the clutch off it would be a good idea to change the upper rear engine seal.

Sorry about the poor quality of the photos.

a single clutch is when you press the clutch pedal down everything stops and a double clutch when you press down halfway the tractor stops moving but the PTO keeps turning until the pedal is pressed down all the way
is there a badge on front grill that says LIVE DRIVE if there is no badge it is probably single clutch... by the way there is big difference in price of each clutch
what is condition of rest of tractor the engine sleeves are prone to corrosion

Was using it and pushed the clutch in and the tractor kept going.
Most likely the bearing went thur the fingers is what I have been told.

The easiest way to tell if you have a "Live" clutch is to look at the High-Low
selector lever.

If it is up for High then you have a "Live Clutch", if it is down for "High"
then you have a standard (Single) clutch.
