Well, I am sure I could look at pressure plate and tell but I have seen a ton of plates over near 60 years. The fingers on a good clutch normally lay parallel to the face of the pressure plate. As linings wear the fingers move back toward throwout bearing. If your fingers are less than parallel toward the flywheel, I would suspect collapsed backing plate on clutch. Far as pilot bearing causing shift problems I can't say just what is or isn't taking place in there. That is why I suggest jacking up rear tire and manually moving all linkages forward and back into all gears to try to determine if there is a problem internally or externally.

Hey Pete I ended up having to split the tractor at the trans and clutch housing again. That pilot bearing was ruined and wouldn't let it shift. When I go to reinstall it you said to use a mirror. Where would I get a good look at the bearing with the mirror unpon reinstallation? Thanks
