I finally remembered to snap a pic of the now "3 piece" MF175 clutch disc. As I said on chat, I've put a lot of clutches in, but NEVER seen one do this! We got all the new parts in, but something is weird with the pressure plate, even though it looks perfect. Have a new one coming in mid-week.

Wow that is really a three piece clutch. It's amazing how even with the rivot holes being that elongolated that it didn't start flying into pieces.Really strange how things can happen.Larry

When I pulled off the pressure plate, it fell out just as you see it. I only found 1 part of a rivet, and it was embedded into one piece of friction material. The rest laid in the bottom of the bell housing.

I had that happen in a car once. Never seen that on a tractor. Wow Daniel, glad there wasn't more damage done.

I have never seen that happen before Daniel. I hope the new clutch and pressure plate takes care of it and you will be up and running again.

Ahhh, the life of a farmer! Glad you're getting it all worked out Dan! I've never seen that happen before either. Thankfully there wasn't any collateral damage.

The 175 is back together, loader mounted & scraper on the rear. My son says the clutch feels weird now. LOL He's been so used to the old worn clutch, that new feels wrong! It feels great to me! :thumbs:
Now I have the cattle trailer in the shop. Putting new floor edges in...3 1/2 x 1/4" angle iron & 12 gauge steel sheeting to go up the side about a foot to reach good old steel to weld to. Not going to wait till I grind the legs off a cow from falling through.
