Those clutch pack were the Achilles Heel on all those series IHC tractors. They can hang up in no time at all. I have pulled them on 14s and 18s a few times, not the worst job but can be done in a day. They also like to break the stub axle that connects the clutch to the final drive, if the spline that meshes into the drine gear in the final drive gear shows signs of being twisted it needs to be replaced. Their still easier to work on than some others, I think that the early Allis is one of if not the worst in that dept. F.J.W.

Yeah, that one is probly not going to free up by itself...one clutch compartment on my TD6 was completely full of a packrat's nest when I got it. I ended up pounding that clutch drum to death with a big hammer to get the usable fiber disks out...soaked it a bucket of diesel for about 6 months-no go...got a used drum from a salvage yard. Good luck on yours, hopefully it's not that bad.
If the website you mentioned is General Gear, you're in good hands...I got parts for a 500C from them last fall, good people...

Yes those clutches can get sticky quick. Try to tun her at least every two / three months. I have a little T6 that I enjoy a lot. Best part is that it doesn't tear things up near as much as the bigger machines. I use mine to do small jobs but really got it to pull wagons of kids about the farm in the fall. Little guys love buldozers and chose it as apposed to the tractors every time.

THANKS fellow friends, I saw different blades on machines in pictures and clips on YouTube on the net. Now I know what I got.... an IHC tool bar with blade. THANKS again.

Sloroll, what year is your T6 and is it the same engine used in the Farmall "M"? I am looking forward to have fun and move a little dirt with mine.
