    Posted: 21 Nov 2017 at 2:52pm
I was going to park my 750 MF combine the other day but when I started it discovered the clutch wouldn't release.  Put a block between the linkage and the axle to keep pressure on the throw out bearing but after nearly a week it still hasn't released.  Anyone have experience with those machines?  I don't have a shop manual for it.

John our neighbor had that happen to him, but it was in the fall when he first started it. Ol Perkins fired right up and put him thru the end of the machine shed. He did not have a head on it. Will be interested to see what you find.

I pressure washed it back in September, maybe got water in the clutch housing, which is separate from the transmission.

Most days are well above freezing so water freezing in it shouldn't be a problem, but rust might.  There is a threaded bolt with two nuts on one side of the housing, maybe I'll try to loosen or tighten them to see if it helps.  Fortunately the combine was in the yard and in neutral when I started it....

Most likely rusted to flywheel.If you cant access it through an inspection cover somewhere to peck on disc while released,drive it around with the pedal held down is about all you can do.Apply brake while driving.

Messed with it a bit today, nice and warm day.  Had to pry the trans out of gear, drove it around a bit, no brakes, they used to work, another project.  Drove it up against a pile of dirt, started smoking the drive belt but clutch held.  Guess I may have to take it apart.

Ya know, if the clutch doesn't work, brakes are nice to have....

The heads off, it's big enough without a 24' header.
