I am planning to install a new clutch disc in the D17 this spring. I had the tractor split last fall for another project and replaced the throw out bearing, "its a long story" but I was unable to get the disc from the local ADCO dealer before I had to move the tractor. The disc showed lots of wear and was really thin! The clutch slips under a heavy pull and now is the time to fix it. However, when I had the tractor split last fall, I noticed uneven wear on the fingers of the pressure plate. What could cause this problem and how serious is this if I install the new disc with this existing condition?. The tractor works fine with the old disc under normal conditions except when in a heavy pull. It occasionally will slip in 3rd gear when pulling a 3 bottom plow in heavy soil so it needs to be fixed

Don, I thank you for the information. I am however surprised at your cost for BOTH pressure plate and clutch disc at the $120 figure. I paid hundred bucks for just the disc! Where did you buy the pressure plate??

I would replace the pressure plate also. They are very inexpensive, I put a lutch and pressure plate in my D14 for $$120.00. As far as the uneven wear, I have no idea what would cause it, I have never seen it before. The only thing that comes to mind would be the collar that the throw-out bearing rides on is worn, allowing it to contact one finger more than the other. I guess also the fingers, which are adjustable, could be adjusted uneven, allowing one finger to touch more than the other. This is a problem because if the fingers are not adjusted properly, the pressure plate will not apply/release properly. If I was in your shoes, I would seriously think about replacing the pressure plate also.
