I just split the engine from the tractor after I found one of the pressure plate arm pins laying in the inspection plate area, thankfully nothing was broken, I never get that lucky, anyway we replaced the pin, installed new keepers to hold them in place and have the engine , Perkins 152.7,2.5 Diesel, back in the tractor. The question I have is does anyone know the process to adjust the clutch after I get it fully installed. I adjust the three forks to the same height, I even measured it two different ways to make sure they are the same height. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

There's a special tool to set the fingers in relation to the inside step or lip. Some manuals have the information where you can make the tool.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Thanks for the response, when the clutch pedal is depressed you can feel when the throw out bearing makes contact with the pressure plate arms, does this adjustment of the pedal travel allow for enough travel to disengage both sets of clutches?

With the engine back in, the only adjustment is the freeplay on the clutch pedal.

I don't have the manual here, but it's a matter of loosening the pinch clamp bolt where the pedal attaches to the clutch release shaft, rotating the pedal/shaft position until there is about 3/4-7/8" between the pedal arm and the upper stop.
