 1910 Ford clutch

I have a chance to buy a 1910 Ford and was told that the clutch plate needs replaced. How hard is it to replace this?
Has anyone had experience in replacing one?

 1910 Ford clutch

Virtually all tractors have to have the cases split to replace the clutch. Bolts that join the cases are removed and the front half is pulled forward. Some special tools for separating steering arms etc. are required as well as various jacks or hoists. Aligning a two-stage clutch when mounting a new assembly is a bit tricky.

Each half has to be supported by jacks, hoists and blocks. The front may be on something like transmission jacks so it can be rolled forward. However, it's important to remember that each side of the engine must be blocked against the front axle. Without the blocks, the front can rotate on the front axle pivot point and fall over after it is disconnected from the real half.

Having said all this, replacing clutches is something fairly ordinary owners do. Most have a fair bit of mechanics experience, a well-equipped shop and of course a manual.

 1910 Ford clutch

I'm on my third split to replace a clutch in a '57 Massey Ferguson MF50. The first time I didn't get the two stage clutch aligned correctly and the clutch wouldn't release. The second time the clutch worked great and but the rear engine oil seal started leaking. I'm on my third split now and hopefully this will be the last time.

With the right tools a two stage clutch replacement is quite a chore, without I wouldn't even try it. Granted this tractor is over 40 years old.

I got so fed up after the oil seal started leaking that I went and boaght a new NH 1920. If it were me I'd steer clear or at least get a quote from a dealer and let them do it.

Yes Craig--words of wisdom. I've had my share of good outcomes doing major tear downs on cars and trucks, but I've also had my share of the aggravations you describe. Maybe from a sense of self-preservation, I haven't tried to resurrect a well equipped shop, and so my dealer's repair estimates always seem pretty good--even with transportation costs included.
