D17 power director shims

Report to Moderator

I tore the power director apart on my D17 last night. From what my book says the total of the shims should be .205. Mine had .066 front and rear and .049 in the center,giving me a total of.181. The friction plates are all .119 to .120.
Everything looks good with minimal wear. This PD hasn't worked since I owned this tractor due to a broken shift collar. I have never worked on a PD before and don't want to split the tractor again due to an incorrect shimming or adjustment. Thanks for any and all advice,OO

I need to know is the power director clutches the same for a D-17 series I as they are for a Series III?

I would put the recommended shims back in the way your manual tells you too with the correct thickness for each part of the clutch (neutral, high, low). The shims are available from AGCO at a reasonable price, or at least my local AGCO dealer had some on the shelf that weren't very expensive. Most of the time, it's a matter of moving shims from one spot into the next to adjust engagement or the neutral, but in your case it looks like you are maybe missing some thicknesses in there. Maybe somebody adjusted wrong sometime back in it's history? I set the PD clutch up on my D19 right to the manual tolerances and it has not given me a problem, even shifting it under a heavy load, such as plowing. I hope this helps you out.

Today's Featured Article - Measuring with Calipers - by Staff. The legs of inside calipers are curved outward at the extremities to facilitate measuring small holes, while outside caliper legs have a large curve inward to increase their capacity for large work. Firm-joint calipers are adjusted approximately by the hands and then set to the feel of the work by tapping them on a metal surface. It is a common practice when opening calipers by this means to tap the top of the joint. It is better, if possible, to tap the inside of the legs, as repeated blo ... [Read Article]
