In general, tractors have threaded rods in the pedal linkage are used to adjust the pedal free travel when the clutch is disengaged--most free-travel specs are for around 3/4". This typically is the only clutch adjustment, and also adjusts both the TX and PTO clutches if the tractor has a two stage clutch.

Most tractors have to be 'split' to replace a clutch. Splitting is disconnecting the front and back halves at the cases. Splitting isn't too difficult and a manual would describe the procedure. However, various specialty jacks or hoists are needed to hold the separate halves upright and roll one end away from the other. In addition, many tractors have a pivot point on the front axle. The front half of the tractor can turn on its pivot and fall over when disconnected from the rear if the engine rails aren't blocked against the axles. Many owners, including myself, aren't equipped to split a tractor, and dealers end up doing many of the jobs. Getting the right alignment is reported to be a bit tricky when replacing double clutches. Iíve only done it on light trucks myself, and itís still a pain if you donít have hoists.

I've replaced a couple of clutches on some MF's and one on a Fergy TO20. I can't recall any tractor that doesn't require splitting to replace the clutch, not that there aren't any I just haven't ran across them. It is a job that you need to be very careful in doing because as Tom stated the front end can and will tilt on the axle. The way we did it was to use an "A" frame turned lengthwise of the tractor. We set the legs of the frame in front of the rear wheels and used a come-a-long across the top of the frame to support it. We then chocked the front end against the axle, strapped it down and supported the front end with a come-a-long hooked on the trolley so we could separate the halves.

I used a socket and extension to align the clutch. I have heard of people using broom sticks and many other things. I have also used an alignment tool found at most parts stores. The alignment tool would be better because the splines would line up better using it.
