    Team, Only 22 hours on this tractor but just past the 2 year warranty.

    Lots of rain in central Arizona in the past month and my quarter mile driveway is suffering. I pulled the dozer out of the barn to fix it and had to jam it in gear. i.e. no clutch.

    It appears that the pin connecting a rod to the clutch shaft crumbled and the clutch shaft does not fully rotate with the arm. Its hard to reach in there to fix and it appears much of the pin is still in the clutch shaft. This is difficult to get to. I will hack at it but its hard to get to. I thought I would ask for advice first. Do I take the pedals and floor plate off or should I reach between the track floor and try drive it out from there? any advice on where to get the correct pin? Thanks in advance.

    Picture of clutch shaft and picture of parts of the pin that crushed enclosed. Appreciate your advice.

    Thanks, Tom

    Found them at circleG. It appears to be an 8×40 rolled pin. I will just try to remove to floorboard and pound the new pin in place.

    If you have a single deckplate the pedals will have to be removed from the arms before you can remove the deckplate. If you have two deckplates, only the clutch pedal has to be removed from the arm.

    Make sure the holes on the arm and shaft are in alignment. Some people will insert a smaller split pin inside the larger one and index the splits 180 degrees apart. Personally, I prefer the coiled pins.

    I think you got this.
