Yea, I figured.  On a flipper I might go with cheap parts. But on the other hand, even if its a flipper I dont like using cheap parts.  Damn this is absolutely the smoothest and most quiet OM616 I have seen.  It literally runs like a sewing machine.  I may just have to keep it. On 7/6/2020

I think I would just bleed it out by removing the slave cylinder, then crack the connection to the master to allow air in.  Remove the carpet from the driver footwell if you can, put some rags inside to catch any drips. Max Dillon Charleston SC Jun 3, 2020 5:28:53 PM Kaleb Striplin via

The problem is the clutch plate rusting and freezing to the pressure plate and flywheel. Depending on location it is not unusual for tractors to set idle for many months. On Mon, May 18, 2020, 11:28 Allan Streib via Mercedes wrote: > Scott Ritchey via Mercedes writes: > > > Many tractors have

The idea of that hook is, I think, to engage the clutch so the clutch disk is not touching the fly wheel or pressure plate, so they can't rust together. Max Dillon Charleston SC May 18, 2020 5:17:07 PM Allan Streib via Mercedes : > I may have misunderstood, on first read I thought he was

I may have misunderstood, on first read I thought he was saying you could hook the clutch pedal down while the tractor was idling for a long time. But to hook it down while the tractor *is idle* (i.e. not running) is probably what was meant, now that I read it again, and that makes more sense

Neutral is a transmission internal condition.  Clutch in or out is at the fly wheel / clutch disc / pressure plate, which is between engine and transmission. Max Dillon Charleston SC May 18, 2020 11:28:22 AM Allan Streib via Mercedes : > Scott Ritchey via Mercedes writes: > > >
