 Mitsu MT 372D need clutch & sheet metal, blade, mower

I just got a Mitsubishi MT 372D. It's the 18.5HP 4WD tractor 3cyl. It starts and runs fine, but the clutch will not work. Not even a little. The previous owner said it stopped working when it flipped over backward while pulling a log. I'ld like to order a clutch befor I pull the tractor apart to fix it. I would also be interested in some decent sheet metal, a mower, blade, or other attachments (after the clutch is fixed.)

Has anyone had this type of clutch problem before?

I can supply you with parts, Check the linkage real closely to make sure that isn't the problem.

 Mitsu MT 372D need clutch

I'm with Leonard here. From the description, I'm not sure that it's certain the clutch pressure plate and disc is the problem. The idea may be based on more diagnostics than was apparent in the description, but a new clutch may not be needed. Well, a tractor split in this situation seems pretty likely and if there's over a thousand hours on the tractor or evidence of prior clutch trouble it might be good to replace it on principal. I sure would hate to waste a split just to reconnect linkage.

I'm assuming that the clutch pedal feels like it's all free-travel, and attempts to shift from neutral grinds gears. If so, that sure does sound like a linkage problem.

If the TX shifts normally from neutral but the tractor doesn't go, then it's another problem and the clutch pressure-plate is a candidate. The trouble with taking a diagnostic guess here is that a log skidding job heavy enough to flip a tractor seems like a good candidate for one that might blow pressure-plates or cause other drive-train failures. However, flipping a tractor on its back seems like a good candidate a job that might break or disconnect some linkage.

The bell-housing area can be accessed on a few tractors, and it sure would be handy if yours is one of them. If so, you could see if the linkage is sliding the throw-out bearing and if not maybe even reconnect it. The cost of new sheet metal from a manufacture likely will take your breath away.
