  1. 14 auto friction clutch

    I was wrong I had to use a pliers to open the tow valve and when I used the pliers to shut it I didn't get it tight en a screwdriver gave it another 1/8 of a turn and it would go forward and reverse. Thanks guys I just had to do the basics and check everything
  2. 14 auto friction clutch

    The tow valve is closed I had to open it to move it from where I had it stored.No hydro lift.This is the friction clutch on the shifter that you adjust for forward and reverse
  3. My 14 auto no name won't move I tried to adjust the friction clutch how the owners manual said but that didn't work.T tranny was full of fluid .What is the next step? TIA
