2010 Clutch Pressure Plate tool

Does anyone have the dimensions for the pressure plate spring height gage tool. I put a rebuilt pressure plate and clutch in my 2010 and the clutch is not disengaging completely. When I start in gear (safety switch bypassed) and the clutch is depress, the tractor will start, but not move. And when I let the clutch out the tractor will move. However, I can not change gears with the tractor running. Not any gear or range. The only thing I can think of is the pressure plate wasn't adjusted correctly at the factory when it was overhauled.

OK. I found a great John Deere Dealer in Ritzville, WA that was willing to let me copy the JD277 Pressure Plate Tool. I made one according to my drawings. Now, is the gauge supposed to just touch the tip of the pressure plate finger that touches the bearing? Or is the gauge supposed to touch inside the valley of the finger between the tip and the spring cup?

It should only touch the tip that contacts the throwout bearing.

Great, thanks, I did it right. Ready to go back together in the morning.

I got the tool made. By the measurements off the JD227 tool, the pressure plate fingers are exactly .250" above the outer rim surface of the pressure plate. Tractor goes back together in the AM

Good to hear your back up and going (and changing gears when needed).
