Obtain the Service Manual and Parts Manual as well as the Operator's Manual for the tractor. Service Manual provides step by step procedures.

You will probably need new clutch brake linings (2 each). The clutch brake linings will probably be the only adjustment needed for the clutch.

It’s .090” clearance on the throwout bearing and the fingers on the pressure plate. And .010” clearance on the pucks.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
