    Little grey fergie with sticky clutch

    Was going to look at a little grey fergie for sale as I missed my Ford

    The seller say's the clutch is sticking occasionally through lack of use and will free up, is this the case?

    Also was buying it to do a few tractor runs with friends but it's not registered, no log book and no number plate, is it a problem to register it and get an age related plate?

    Many thanks in advance guys

    Quite common apparently and yes it will free up.

    It might free up but it could also be that the pressure plate is warped with fatique which causes it to drag. A new clutch wouldn't be too dear I would have thought if you need it.

    Cheers, good bargaining tool that, any idea on registering it with no V5 or number plate [perhaps first time ever?]

    If it's got the serial number plate you should be ok. From what I've heard if you're not a member join the ferguson club and they will be really helpfull with registering etc

    If the clutch is well and truly stuck, I was advised (on an MF135) to remove the starter and squirt some brake fluid through the hole onto the clutch plate and leave it with a six inch concrete block on the clutch pedal. It worked!

    Does it harm the clutch spring if the pedal is left wedged down? I do it on an old dumper (as it were) and it does not appear to have caused harm.
