I can't see how that would gain you much myself... Most of mine are to the point of slipping and squalking long before the adjustment runs out? When the disc is already that thin there's not enough tension left on the PP springs to pull a good load.
Mabey alright if you're just putzing around with it but put it against 10 ton where it's got to pull... not going to work so good.
A split is so easy on that thing anyway it's not worth buggering with.

I bought my 5600 with a broken tranny case and swapped a junk yard tranny into it. At the time the clutch looked like it had life in it, and honestly I was broke between the tractor purchase and tranny purchase, so I didn't put a fresh clutch in it. once it was all together, the clutch released right at the top of the travel, but no more threads left to adjust, so I cut it and rewelded to gain more length (or less length, I can't remember the geometry on that one). That was in 2005. I agree, I'm not pulling 10 ton every day, but it is my loader, haying and logging tractor and it is still going strong (knock on wood) over 1,000 hours later. Until this fall I didn't have a garage that it would fit in so I would have been splitting it outside again.
