I appreciate the advice. I have both the operator's manual and the I T manual and followed the directions for r and r and adjustment of both primary and T A adjustments meticulously before I contacted YT. With 1/8th inch clearance between the clutch levers or fingers and the release bearing, the free play is 2 1/2 inches. Floor plate is in home position with all 4 spool spacers in place, clutch pedal, rod , adjuster yoke and pins are original and undamaged. What controls the home position of release bearing on the cast housing that holds it. If this release bearing is not in the proper place, that 1/8" clearance is out of sinc with the travel of clutch throw distance. It appears to be identical to the position of the other diesel 656 that I own. Would it be possible to put the clutch disc on backwards between the pressure plate and the engine? I can't clearly remember which way it faced. But even if it were wrong , that wouldn't explain why I was having trouble with the first unwornout clutch. Still baffled.
