I have the engine (1655) pulled for other reasons, and I'm inspecting the clutch for wear. Looks like the flywheel side is in pretty good shape, about 1/16-3/32 above the rivet heads (flat) in the pads. The pressure plate side has a little more wear, maybe 1/32 more, and it looks like rivet ends (flared) are just starting to touch on this side. My question is whether the rivet ends wearing against the pressure plate is OK or if the clutch plate should be replaced? Clutch wasn't slipping before removal, so I'm sure it has some life left, just not sure how much and whether replacing now is required.

I ain't trying to spend your money, but I think you are lucky, to have caught it, before it scored your pressure plate. As I understand what you wrote, you are very close to having the rivets start touching. With it already open, then it is a great time to put in a new friction disc.

Thanks Ralph. Yes, the pressure plate is still clean. I'll order a replacement.

You better check your flywheel surface as well for the proper depth plus change the pilot bearing while you are doing the clutch and change the pressure plate as well.

sounds like you need at least a new disk and should mill the flywheel if it needs it,if you are using this tractor for yard or loader work I would put in a woven disk, buttons are good for heavy work but if you are using the clutch alot and slipping it some they tend to be flywheel eaters
