How to Repair your John Deere Hand Clutch

Have you been grinding the hand clutch on your John Deere two cylinder? Do not worry, the specialized design of these tractors makes for accessibility and repair of the John Deere Clutch. Unlike with many other tractors. the clutch on the lay down John Deere tractors will not need splitting the rear end of the tractor from the torque tube, to get to the clutch components. Built in Waterloo Iowa these tractors are referred to as "lay downs" by tractor enthusiasts meaning the engine has horizontally opposed cylinders. Waterloo two cylinder assembly includes the A, B, D, G, GP, H, R, 50, 60, 70, 80, 520, 530, 620, 630, 720, 730, 820, 830 and many associated variations. To reach the clutch take off the clutch cover from the side of the tractor. These covers attach with compressions and are often dented from the force necessary to replace the cutch cover. If a new clutch cover is necessary check out the availability at Steiner Tractor Parts (STP). Their most sought after cover is the JDS543 which fits late models A and G up through the 630 and 730 tractors. After you remove it you will need to un assemble the clutch. Consult your manual if needed. If you are missing yours STP can help. A replacement is likely available on their web site: Steiner Tractor Parts. Once you get it apart, take a look at the clutch facings and bonded clutch discs. These parts will wear out as they bear the friction to engage the transmission. After inspection, examine the teeth on the slider disc(s) and the clutch driver for wear or damage. Either one or two slider discs are used, depending on the model. If needed, replace. Next inspect the clutch dogs, springs, T-bolts and the slotted hex nuts for damages. The belt pulley brake lining might also need replacing. Do not forget to consider the lining for wear. And now if the hand clutch has too much play then it may be reason to replace the clutch lever pivot bushing and maybe even the pivot bolt. Luckily Steiner Tractor Parts (STP) offers a wide selection of clutch covers and facings, discs and drivers, slotted hex nuts, springs, clutch dogs, t-bolts and bonded linings, pivot bolts and clutch lever pivot bushings along with the belt pulley lining.  With online convenience and low pricing STP is a clutch resource for John Deere tractors.
