Report to Moderator

Greetings: I am nearly finished with my G tractor. I have rebuilt the engine, installed a new clutch, Pressure Plate T/O bearing. Before putting all the tin on and starting the engine, I wanted to make sure the clutch worked properly. I reasoned that I could adjust the pedal freeplay ( 1" ) as specified, put the transmission in gear; push in the clutch and I would be able to move the tractor... Wrong, The tractor will not move.. Just as if the clutch was not pushed in and it was in gear... QUESTION: IS THERE A "BURN-IN PERIOD, WHERE IN ENGINE HAS TO TURN THE CLUTCH ASSEMBLY BEFORE IT WILL WORK PLROPERLY? Thanks, this is a puzzler to me... Mark

Mark: It is not necessary to burn in the clutch. It is possible to install the clutch disc backwards. The splined hub on the disc is longer on one side then the other, The long side faces the transmission. I can't think of any other reason why it is not working properly.

No, there is no "burn in" period.

What gear did you have the tranny in? It is easiest to do what you are attempting with the tranny in the HIGHEST FORWARD GEAR. Is that what you were trying?

It's been over 20 years since I've worked on a "G", so I can't remember how the lined clutch disc is set up, but on most clutches, the center hub mechanism on the plate is offset, and if it is installed with the wrong side facing the flywheel, the center hub of the lined plate will contact the bolts holding the flywheel to the crankshaft, and the clutch will not release.
