I gather you're a specialist with these 414,434,444,etc.
I bought mine a few years ago,as a "make do" unit,as my good Nuffield 3/45tractor is at Dad's place.He won't let me bring it back home!
I figured I need to tidy up the 444 a bit,while I have the clutch out....so I'm changing oils,fixing up water pump,wiring,etc.I also have a leaky seal near the axle/wheel area.The 444 has been a handy tractor,so I'll hang on to her.
Anyway,if I fix the clutch into position,& adjust to your spec,is that all that I need to do.??
Another guy told me to make up a U-shaped bracket to measure from the forks....but without a diagram,I couldn't really understand what he meant..
He also told me 0.90 clearance ???
Any chance of a few scans from the manual.??
I'll take any advice you have.
