I have stuck clutch in my 29-26S. I have jacked it up and run it in 2nd gear for about 45 minutes with the clutch depressed to no avail. Any suggestions?

Thanks Jack. I'll give it a try. Slight delay as I'm rebuilding the carb, (again).

Managed to break the clutch loose on two '29s which both coincidently stuck at the same time. Simply started the vehicle in neutral, of course. Placed it under load and dropped it into gear. The lowest gear possible is best but I had to use 3rd (High). The load should not be stationary but rather permit some degree of resistence. I hooked to my ATV (on a gravel surface) which was parked in gear. The engine would stall after moving the ATV 6-12 inches but merely one pull was sufficient on both vehicles. I now store the vehicles with a prop holding the clutch depressed if not using them for a week or more.
