G Clutch .. Expert still needed

Report to Moderator

I am still trying to install a new clutch and pressure plate on my G tractor. I have the engine out and placed on end with the pressure plate up. I have properly installed the clutch disk (long spline towards the transmission). Problem: The disc moves (slides)even after I have secured all the pressure plate bolts to the flywheel. I reason this cannot be correct, as slippage would occur under power. Do I need to adjust the pressure plate fingers, or are these set at the factory? Please give me your thoughts, it's a real puzzler to me... Thanks, Mark

I had the same problem with my clutch. We ended up adjusting the fingers on the pressure plate which worked in the end; though be careful, the pressure plate fingers have and allen key bolt that's pratically hollow and we broke one of ours off adjusting it. We made another one by cutting off a bolt and cutting a slotted screw end into it. If you haven't returned your old one yet you might be able to use one of those bolts if you need to. The clutch works now, but I'm not sure if I should've messed with the fingers. I talked to a professional tractor mechanic about my problem later and he said he once ran into the same problem and found out that there were two different pressure plates made. Instead of messing around with the fingers (which he frowned upon) he simply ordered the other pressure plate which fit perfectly.

You might want to talk to him to see if you can get the right one. Kurt McMillen in Trumansburg, NY. Should be in the phone book, or on-line.

I have the clutch out of a G at home. When I get home I will see if I can make mine do what you are saying. I have never had that happen.
If seems to me that if the clutch plate will lay flat on your flywheel with the long splines up and you lay the pressure plate with the clutch mating surface up and the clutch plate on it with the long spline down and the clutch surface that will grip the flywheel is above the flanges that bolt to the flywheel, you should be good to go.

Today's Featured Article - Upgrading an Oliver Super 55 Electrical System - by Dennis Hawkins. My old Oliver Super 55 has been just sitting and rusting for several years now. I really hate to see a good tractor being treated that way, but not being able to start it without a 30 minute point filing ritual every time contributed to its demise. If it would just start when I turn the key, then I would use it more often. In addition to a bad case of old age, most of the tractor's original electrical system was simply too unreliable to keep. The main focus of this page is to show how I upgr ... [Read Article]
