Re: MF 50 clutch pedal too high

I am not sure if the 50 shares this feature with the 65 or not.

On the 65 you can move the clevis pin on the clutch rod to the other hole that is provided. Doing so yields a lower clutch pedal BUT will not allow the second stage of the clutch to release.

So this may or may not help your situation.

Another fix is that you can adjust the 2-stage clutch closer together, whereas the second stage starts to disengage sooner. That would be done through the bottom inspection cover and you would adjust the gap on the three set screws to a lesser amount. Then you would have to readjust the clutch pedal rod to get the lower pedal height. Should you decide to go this route, it is important that the set screws are as close as possible to the same height.

Of course what I just told you goes against what you will read in the service manual, but a lower pedal is worth it to me.

Like Eric, I can't vouch that the English models with 11" dual clutches are the same as the MF50's, but, as a rule, if the pedal height is getting excessively high, this can be a sign of main plate wear. If this is not a possibility, then I can recommend Eric's advice. Close up the gap on the 2nd stage. But you MUST maintain some clearance, otherwise the PTO drive plate will slip under heavy loading. This will give you at least temporary relief from a sore chin. Evan.
