I have a to-20 that sat through the winter outside and now has a stuck clutch. What is the best way to correct this? Any good ways to prevent it?

Do you mean it is stuck engaged? If so, there have been a few methods mentioned on this forum from time to time. Some work, some don't, some are dangerous. You might try just popping it into 1st gear a couple times while idling. My TO-35's clutch was stuck and after trying a couple other things it just unstuck after I popped it in gear. Also, I've heard of getting it going down the road at a good speed, then stepping on the brakes hard to break it loose. Other methods that involve drawbars, chains and trees have been brought up, but I don't recommend that, unless you like going upside down backwards. Maybe others have some other suggestions. I guess if nothing works the tractor will have to be split. As far as preventing it.....my TO-35 sits most of the winter, so I take some rope and tie the clutch down part-way whenever it is inactive more that a couple of months.

I HAVE FREED CLUTCHES BY STARTING MOTORS RUNNING TO OPERATING TEMPERTURE AND GETTING INTO HIGHEST GEAR POSSIBLE WITH FOOT ON BRAKE DEPRESSING CLUTCH PEDAL UP AND DOWN WHILE MOVING

As others mentioned, some methods could be dangerous. Not sure of exact situation, but if you can get it in gear and start it in gear (bypassing safety switch) you might try hooking it to a plow and starting it in the highest gear you are comfortable with in a field where you can't hit anything, drive off with the plow and then drop the plow into the ground. That was the method Big Dean suggested to me, and although it didn't work for me at the time, I did try it and didn't get hurt and I can see how it might work a good percentage of the time. Does the 20 have the small hole in the bell housing for timing the tractor? Is yours open? Mine was, and that was how a mouse got inside my clutch and built a nest, putting moisture in there over a winter, which caused mine to seize.

Prevention - make sure your start switch housing is sealed good on top your bell housing. I've heard several guys say they leave a brick, or other heavy object on the clutch peddle over-Winter to keep clutch from rusting together.
