The shop manual data contained in this manual covers the standard or proprietary tractor units used by, but not necessarily manufactured by, tractor manufacturers prior to 1970.
This manual is a compilation of two separate manuals: one provides general overhaul and troubleshooting data for bench repair and adjustments; the other provides specifications for standard units (marked with corrections).
For information covering the removal and installation of many of the units covered in this manual, please refer to the manufacturer and model specific I&T Shop Service manuals that are available.

1. Satisfactory operation and reasonable clutch service life is vitally affected by the condition and alignment of units associated with the clutch.
These units are properly fitted and aligned when the tractor is built, but looseness or misalignment may occur after long usage, due to wear, loosening or accidental distortion, and shifting of parts.
Renewal of clutch parts without consideration of these conditions will usually result in poor operation and premature failure of parts.
If clutch does not operate properly or if renewal is required, the following examples will help to locate sources of trouble, either in the clutch or in associated units.
Application of alignment data given is particularly important where premature clutch failure has occurred.
- Insufficient or zero clutch pedal free travel.
- Operator riding clutch pedal.
- Oil or grease on clutch facings.
- Worn or burned clutch facings.
- Wrong clutch facing material.
- Release levers out of adjustment.
