Trying to adjust dual clutch on a 1968 (I think) Ford 3000. Shop manual specifies 2.110" from PTO disc hub to top of lever adjusting screws plus or minus 0.010" and a "G" gap of 0.050 to 0.054" (for my particular model) at release lever strut. How critical are these measurements? If I get them close, but not within these specs what problems might I encounter? Uneven clutch wear? High vibration?

Don't have access to a lot of precision measuring instruments other than a set of micrometer calipers and a torque wrench. Splitting the tractor is a major job for me, and I don't want to have to repeat it. Wanted to get the benefit of anyone's experience who could advise an old but inexperienced shade tree mechanic.

Thanks,

Rex

I read that when you get a new one it isn't necessarily setup correctly. Also read that your Ford NH dealer can do the setup for you for a fee. Considering what's involved, and my experiences with replacing such (zero) the fee for them to do it and get it right the first time would be money well spent.

It's critical enough you should borrow a dial caliper if you don't own one.

The actual height or gap is not as important as making sure that all 3 sets are very close to each other. If your levers are not even, you'll end up with a pulsating pedal. Don't ask me how I know that.
