I'm replacing the clutch in my John Deere 1050 4wd tractor. I ordered a new clutch from Yesterday's Tractors and now I need to adjust the clutch fingers, or the clutch release lever height. The manual specifies a special tool, a JDG-52 Clutch adjusting tool. In the photo below "A" is the special tool and "B" are the clutch fingers that need adjusting. The two local John Deere places do not have this tool, don't know where to get one, and the wait time on an order might be three months. I've looked around on the internet and can't find one except a sold one on Ebay. The clearance that this gauge is set for is NOT in the manual. So I've hit a brick wall here. Does anyone have any insight on how to set the finger height, or where to obtain the tool? Pictures below. Thanks very much! third party image third party image

Thanks, everybody!
I've sent an inquiry to ebay seller Mike, and worst case scenario, Big Green has one for, of course, megabucks considering what it is, a little piece of sheet metal with no moving parts. However, splitting this tractor is not something I want to do again if I can help it so I will track down a tool one way or another. When I have one in hand I will post the specs on this forum and the other big forum so the next person with this issue will have an easier time of it.

Since it appears as if tool didn't sell why not contact Ebay seller mike2379 and ask him to relist item or sell it to you?

Looks like a person could print that photo of the tool, scale it up or down to exactly match the side-to-side distance, to where it fit exactly like the JD Manual photo, and make the tool.

While there is no substitute for having the correct tool the most IMPORTANT thing is that all three are set to the same height.

Having them set to the correct height will ensure that you have the full range of free travel adjustment of the clutch pedal as the clutch wears and the fingers move towards the TO bearing.

All that being said, 90% of the time if you can determine that all three are at the same height and are several threads above the finger the clutch will be fine.

Worst case scenario is that upon rolling the two halves of the tractor together the clutch pedal adjustment will be out of range and you will have to roll it back apart and set all 3 equally in or out to correct this.
