Thanks to all for the information and help you have given me.

The new issue. When I start the CC-71 it now runs fine. Sit and warms up nicely. But push in the clutch and it makes a very loud gear grinding sound. Makes the sound without moving, just pushing the clutch down.

What should I do next?
Thanks.

Sounds like the throw out bearing has gone south on you.
Either that or a spirol pin has or is about to fail.
There are 5 of them in the drive train

With the clutch released, transmission in neutral and the tractor shut off you should be able to reach up in behind the throw out lever and spin the bearing to see if it turns freely and silently.

Dis-assembly of the drive train and close inspection of the components will possibly be the best route to take.

I remember the last throwout bearing I bought about 10 years ago there was a discussion on here about the ones the CC dealers were selling... some were made in China "that had a short life" .. And they also sold the ones made in USA that was the long lasting ones.. I dont know if that is still true or not...

I bought the CC-71 for the motor. I need it for my 4 digit CC-O. I was hoping to use the CC-71 for the season and do the swap after that. It has been a money pit and I have enough of them. I will use the push mower for the last mowing. Then work on the motor swap and I will be here for lots of advice.

Replacing burst hoses on my Case 1845C now.

Thank you all.
