Well from my experiences with clutches in both cars and tractors...usually the aftermarket ones are never as good as oem. Usually the aftermarket clutch discs are thinner than oem. Will they work?...yes, but will they last like oem? No. It"s like everything"s cheaper for a reason. With that being said if you aren"t working the tractor everyday or anything then you will probably be fine...but if it does get used a lot I would probably pay the extra for an oem clutch but I don"t like splitting tractors either. The original clutch in our 165 lasted until 1985. The dealer put an aftermarket one in and it lasted 6 months. Then he put a genuine Massey clutch in and it is still in there to this day. I measured an oem and an aftermarket clutch once for something else and there was like .060 difference in the clutch disc thickness. I may get blasted for this but I am a strong advocate for having flywheels surfaced when putting a clutch in. It will be smoother and last longer if it is done but I know a lot of people don"t have it done.

 That's why I'm returning My New Clutch Disk From here. in reply to Jason S., 09-20-2012 17:35:18  
I bougth a New Disk from Yesterdays Tractor, & It"s Junk compared to my Original. I do NOT understand how the people have become so Complacent. It"s common practice now for others to keep their mouth shut while buying JUNK! Most have no Choice as we have to buy what"s available, but I"m tired of buying anything that isn"t worth a Damb.
China Sells us Poison in our Pet food,in our Toys and thier Products are Junk, yet people keep their mouth shut for fear they might Upset someone?. Oh Well. If the Truth Hurts-So Be It, and Man Up!
