I have noticed a groaning sound coming from the clutch in my 1960 530. It occurs when I put a heavy load on it. Like getting it moving in high gear, or pushing the snow bucket into a large hard snow drift. It never slips. It just groans until I get the load moving. Has anyone else experienced this?

do you have the correct free-travel on the pedal? if so you may have a worn disc/slippage also have seen a throwout bearing make noise, they are greaseable,, but sure sounds like its slipping to me

It only groans when I'm slipping the clutch to get it moving under a heavy load. Like getting it moving in 4th gear high range. I can feel it in the clutch peddle and hear it also. It doesn't slip at all after I get it moving. I'll check the throw-out bearing the next time I use it.

CN , there was a serial number break in the design of the torque tube, the early had no cover to remove , My 530 is the old tube I'm sure, in addition to those things that you mentioned, that old of a 530 probably has the bronze bushing in the crank and that will cause a chatter on engagement and sitting with the clutch depressed

Good Catches mEl,, I had forgot about the bushing on the early style clutches,, but would that make it growl only when in high gear taking off? I also had a thought if its a later one that has a button clutch like my 69 530 has,, but I cant think of one of them making noise off hand either
cnt

Should never try to take off in 4th high. If triple range, start out in 4th low, take up to 1/3 throttle, nice gentle shift & double clutch into direct, back up to 1/3 throttle, gentle shift & double clutch into high. Same for dual range.

The last time I took the tractor down the road I had the big snow bucket on the loader. After I had it rolling full speed I had quite a time keeping in running straight down the road. So I shifted down to 4th direct. 14mph was much safer than 20mph. Didn't have any steering troubles with the smaller bucket. Anyway, I'm going to keep your suggestion in mind the next time I need to drive on the road. Especially when I can use 4th high range.

Also check to see if oil is leaking from the hydraulic pump drive in the front of the torque tube.I have had some experience with that sort of thing on my 300b.

Probably a dry pilot bushing, once the load is moving the flywheel and the input shaft are moving at the same speed.
