 L3400 dual clutch adjustment

I was doing my first 50 hour maintenance on my L3400. I did everything but the clutch adjustment. The manual (which seems to have pictures of everything but this) says "remove the cover located on the right side of flywheel housing case."

Can someone give me better directions (or a photo)? I can't find the cover they are talking about to make this adjustment

I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question for I don't know what your level of knowledge is. I also know nothing about your tractor but am trying to help here.

Do you know where the flywheel is? It's at the rear of the engine between the bell housing and the engine. By 'flywheel case' they are probably talking about the bell housing.

But I've been wrong before.

BTW, your name says nothing but good things about you Smile

Lets say my knowledge of tractors is limited to 50 hours... but I do have 20 something years of experience breaking British cars. Smile

From my limited (half-guessing) knowledge, I would have thought the bell housing was right behind the engine... but it looks to me like the transmission and diff are sort of one on this tractor... maybe with some amount of shaft between the engine and tranny/diff. So I am looking on what I am calling the trans/diff thingie.

I also looked on the backside of the engine... If it is there, it must be behind the FEL mounts.

I'd suggest a dealer look at it if it only has fifty hours.

Ah, but that wouldn't be any fun and he wouldn't have learned anything. But Art's suggestion does bring up the point that a friendly dealer might let you look at (or even print out) the parts diagram for that area.

Oh I guarantee he would help. One of the nicest, crustiest old farts I have met. I was just looking for the easiest way out.

I actually asked him when I bought it if it needed to go in for the 50 hour checkup... and he basically said something like "any idiot with a wrench and half a brain can handle it."

this also gives me a followup question. Does anyone make an equivalent to Haynes/Chilton/Bentley Manuals for various makes/models of tractors?

I think I found it. It appears to be terminally behind the FEL. It looks like it would require not just removal at the FEL quick disconnect point, but removal of the entire right attachment of the FEL.

Its not a Kubota brand FEL, which makes me wonder if everyone has this problem or if it is my fault for buying a different brand FEL.

It's not unusual for FEL mounts to get in the way of stuff, factory or not.

As a dealer we help people all the time with the information they need to keep our tractors health up. We often will walk the customer through the adjustments as well as operation hints for longer life.
At fifty hours The clutch should not be a problem although I've reservations with saying that as I've seen people that can take them out in the 400 to 500 hour range from riding the clutch.
Servicing is often hindered with after-market attachments.
The two stage clutches can be a royal PIA when worn. They have to adjust both at the same time to work properly and some times the wear is unequal requiring special machining to equal the pressure plates. I haven't seen the 3400 apart to know the base style but for those we had head aches with thirty years ago we did learn a lot.
