Just a guess from an old shadetree mechanic: pedal pressure is wrong-too weak, or the clutch pressure plate bolted to the flywheel is bad. They will wear on the fingers and the plate's springs can wear. There should be a Case repair facility at a dealership, anywhere close? A mechanic familiar with your case 580, they often don't mind talking a bit over the phone about a mechanical problem. I meant by pedal pressure-I don't know if the rig is hydraulic clutch or mechanical linkage or cable operated, but check if the clutch pedal can be adjusted. On a hydraulic clutch with a clutch master cylinder and an associated slave cylinder, there is no adjustment. You just have to keep the reservoir full of dot-3, or dot-4 brake fluid. So that's my guess, something wrong with the pedal, or worse, something wrong with the pressure plate. You definitely need a second opinion. Good luck.
POSSIBLE CAUSES TO YOUR CLUTCH PEDAL PROBLEM. COULD BE BRAKE FLUID LEVEL LOW CAUSING YOU TO GET AIR IN THE HYDRALIC SYSTEM.IF FLUID WAS LOW CHECK FOR FLUID LEAKS AROUND LINES TO CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER AND CLUTCH SLAVE CYLINDER.IF FLUID LEVEL ALL GOOD. LOOK FOR A BROKE CLUTCH RELEASE BEARING OR FORK.CHECK FOR BROKEN DIAPHRAGM SPRING IN CLUTCH PRESSURE PLATE.
they use a hydrolic system wich use fluid if your gears are not grabbing and its slipping no udjucment require because the cluck is bad but if you cant put it in gear when it on then its your hydrolic system
you have a leak in the clutch hydraulic system. without the spring tension from the clutches pressure plate the the pedal wont return. it is likely that the leak is at the slave cylinder, which is inside the bell housing. to replace it the transmission must be removed.
Check to see there is anything loose. Put the car bumper against something and put it in first gear. Now slowly let go of the clutch. If the cars engine turns off your transmission is good. If it does not turn off or has trouble going off, then you may have a clutch , throw out , or transmission problem.
