D17 Clutch

The clutch slips a bit when the tractor encounters a hard pull in 3rd and sometimes 2nd gear. I intend to split the tractor and replace the clutch disc in the next couple of days. When I have the engine out is there any test or procedure that I should complete to verify that the pressure plate is in good shape before I put it back together.

Thanks Don

Before replacing the engine clutch- check the adjustment on the Power Director clutch. That could be the cause of the slippage, and it has shims that can be moved to adjust it. Eliminate that possibility before splitting the tractor. Access is on the right side, by the PD lever. Your manual has details on the adjustment.

Thanks for the reply and recommendation. I have a manual for the 17 and will attempt to follow the instructions for the adjustment. If I run into problems I know I can count on the good folks on the board for some advice!

Thanks again
