I have mid 80's 255 case international diesel tractor. I was having problems with the clutch releasing, so I replaced the pressure plate, disc, and throw out bearing. There was no oil on the flywheel, so just scuff up the surface cleaned it and put it all back together. now I am still having problems with the clutch releasing. I have checked the linkage more than once. Any ideas of the cause or what am I missing?

What are the "problems with the clutch releasing," specifically?

Examples: Push the pedal and tractor doesn't stop. Push the pedal and gears grind when trying to shift, but tractor does stop when it is in gear. etc.

The gears grinding. Start in neutral can not get in gear with the clutch disengaged. The transmission seems to be turning with the clutch engaged or disengaged.

You didn't say anything about replacing the pilot bearing, if it fits just a little too tight, it will turn the input shaft keeping you from getting into gear.

If you've got the right throw out bearing to pressure plate fingers distance, and the pilot bearing isn't binding, perhaps you got the disk in backwards.
