Jerrymac, I think some thing is needing some work on your tractor as it didn't have live power. Each time the clutch is released the pto should either stop or just free spin till the attchment stops the movement (IE. The blades of a brush hog stop spinning).
Some times the clutch doesn't release properly due to a rear main leak and oil on the clutch face.
Tractors with live power allow the ground speed to stop and the equipment is able to keep running to finish the require chore. Very helpful feature to have when baling hay, chopping corn and blowing snow.
Old steam tractors run in the $100,000.00 +++ range. They command such high prices that they are bought and sold like stocks and bonds putting them out of range for hobby tractor lovers. Some of the odd ball, one of a kind gas tractors bring very high prices too. John Deers at tractor shows for some reason in this area are like Chevys at car shows but still command higher prices even though there may be as many as twenty of the same model at shows.
Hutchenson Minnesota is home to the gathering of the Orange. A Allis Chalmbers meet every summer at the end of July. Also is home to a museum with some prototype tractors such as a electric one they built some time in the 1960's.
The collecting is getting so popular that tractors selling for as little as $50.00 in 1990 are now selling for and in the $2,500.oo area now.
