Daniel, the sad part of the button is I put both new buttons in, so it wasn't rusted/pitted. I may have to pull the PTO and check the setting again, as I couldn't get it to release. That may have had something to do with the fiber button getting wasted. Just to much to do in so little time.

Got the gauge wheels yesterday. Will be looking to install soon. May have to use a smaller diameter wheel than these came with.

On the clutch buttons, I prefer to stick with the fiber ones instead of the bronze ones. That way when the wearing occurs it is on the button which is a five minute job to replace and is a WHOLE lot less costly as well. It's a built in weak spot to keep operating costs down in my opinion. I've only ever replaced one of them in the 4 cubs I have and it was not completely gone either. A neat trick for anyone that isn't aware of it is when you don't have a PTO powered implement onthe tractor is to just throw the implement clutch into gear and thus the wear of the fiber button is eliminated.

The reason I went to bronze is the fiber button lasted two minutes. Don't understand why, the last one went for a couple years. I'll see how this goes, I don't use it very much anyway. Thanks for the explanation, though.
