    I'm having clutch problems on my old JD 6010 tractor. It takes awhile to disengage while moving and if i start it in neutral it won't disengage at all and i have to shut it off, put it in gear and then start it back up.

    Any ideas on what i can do besides taking the clutch out?

    Sounds like the pressure plate mite be shot. I would recommend splitting the tractor your self. Make a set of stands that bolt on the frame rail and unhook the wiring harness and then there is about 6 lines to disconnect then there are about 4 bolts and the tractor is apart. Then replace the parts needed. They are a very simple job and cheep if you skip Deere.

    I know nothing about tractors. I can rip a car apart with no problem but there's something about the Huge bulky metal that's stopping me from touching the tractor.

    well I think I'm gonna do a clutch in a John Deere 4010 this week sometime I will take pictures and try to explain this to show you etc.. It's not as bad as you think. If you take it to a Deere dealer they are going to charge you 1000 for just splitting it then plus what ever else they have to tear in to.
