I opened the inspection plate on the top of the bell housing yesterday and can confirm that the head of the bolt holding the fork to the shaft is on the side of the shaft closest to the rear of the tractor and even with the clutch pedal linkage turned all the way towards the cab which pushes the throw-out bearing closer to the clutch fingers, I could still spin the bearing freely with my fingers through the inspection hole and I could feel that their is a bit of clearance between the fingers and the bearing but not too much. With that being said, why are we still experiencing some slippage? When driving in direct, it seems like we have some slippage momentarily and then it works fine. It is on and off it seems and only happens every so often. Would this be an issue with the over/direct/under maybe slipping? Both the clutch and over/direct/under were replaced/rebuilt a couple years ago.
Any help would be appreciated.
