I just purchased a new pressure plate for my 1955 ford 850 tractor with 10" clutch. Do I need to adjust the manufacturer finger bolts on this new YT pressure plate ?

I have had to set more than a few on Older tractors. Each time the flywheel has been turned it moved the pressure plate forward 20-50 grand each time. 2-3, maybe four clutches after 50-60 years. Now a rebuilt or new pressure plate will not allow the fingers rearward enough to get the correct free play, while keeping the linkage at the correct angles. Most times it just takes measuring off a fixed surface to make sure each finger is the same height as each other. It sometimes takes a few tries. I have found moving the fingers about .050 higher than the factory spec is a good place to start. Good luck Al

Hard to say. I've had to re-adjust more than one "rebuilt" pressure plate from an el-jippo rebuild company. Without a proper jig, you won't know. The best thing you can do is make sure that both sets of fingers are all in the same plane after you bolt it up.

Not if the clutch assembly was properly rebuilt and set up. If so, leave it alone.

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
