our belt is prolly so tight that you cant move your clutch. when sticks ram up under my tractor and tighten my belt i cant move my clutch unless the stick and or branch breaks. so get under your tractor and push the clutch. tell me if its jsut to tight or if its catching on something.

If the clutch isn't moving at all I'd check the linkage to make sure nothing is binding. Here's my setup...

it works fine when the belts not im but i think that some of my idler pulleys that i put in are making it jam and restraining the clutch from moving. like im starting fresh so i dont have the deal with all this b.s.

My murray would leap the instant i popped it in gear, i flopped it over a few times doing that- mine was due to too tight of drive belt, there needs to be some slipping when its not engaged .
