Hey guys, new to this site, and posting for a friend: He recently bought a '54 Case 311 and the foot clutch doesn't disengage the transmission, but the hand clutch will...is it just out of adjustment, or is it supposed to be this way? I am going to look for a manual for that tractor on this site also, but thought some of you Case buffs might know...me, Im an Allis guy Razz....thanks in advance guys

Jeremy

hand clutch is wet clutch that gives 300 live power, and is behind the The Dry clutch,. which is stuck engaged from what understand ,, Is there an inspection plate on brake side bell housing,,, if so , You are Luckier than the Guy with a 3/4 inch hole on the left of bell housing ,, ANYWAY ,, GET Brake Parts CLEANER and Spray the Whole Can in There Liberally on the dry clutch assembly ,, also, you can block down the clutch and tool around using only the hand clutch ,,sooner or later it is bound to pop loose....

Most likely the clutch plate is rusted to the flywheel. That is common out here in the northwet. I just drive around using the hand clutch and depress the foot clutch now & then until it breaks free. Up hill and/or hard pull helps.

Top pic is factory adjustment of clutch rod to provide 1/8" - 3/16" clearance between the throwout bearing and the pressure plate levers. If you can feel the resistance of the pressure plate lever springs when you depress the foot clutch, adjust the rod free movement as measured at the bell housing hole. That will give you the clutch pedal free travel.

Bottom pic is inside the bell housing as split. If you don"t have pressure plate lever spring resistance when depressing the foot clutch, most likely the knob end of the clutch rod is broken off or has worn through the throw out yoke seat. Less likely the stud has broken on the yoke pivot ball.

There are other things in there that can go south, but if the initial rod adjustment doesn"t provide spring resistance you will have to split.

Good advice Jim, guess this works on any dry clutch. Am I to assume that you developed this method out of a special need one time? (<:

I am going to print this one out and put it in my 630 book. This is a good one to remember and in my advancing years I need a little help sometimes!!

Just for your own info, the 311 was only built in 56 and 57 (round nose) and then went to the B series in 58 and 59. Lots of good info from the guys on this board!

Hello Jeremy,
Welcome to yesterday's tractor discussion board.
I have a 311 with hand clutch and foot clutch. The shifter for the hand clutch has a couple of positions that it stays in. Down all the way engages the foot clutch only. The hand clutch will lift a little bit to another position which starts the live pto if the tractor is out of gear if in gear will allow the tractor to move in this position. With pto engaged the pto will start turning too!
Which it sounds like it doing for you right now. Try pushing down the hand clutch to see if this is working correctly. If you have the pto engaged when you let out the foot clutch the pto should be moving at this time. Good luck Jim Yadon
