I was in diapers when this happened. I was told it was a bad idea and that they had to go back to the old way. Now, I have seen some tractors that had a thin tin shim wrapped around the clutch shaft nose to bring the clutch shaft nose O.D. back up to fit the pilot brg I.D., so be sure to check that out.
