Split my JD 1010 diesel to replace the clutch assembly. Discovered clutch pedal return spring was broken in half, but still on the clutch pedal shaft. No spring readily available, so completed without removing or replacing the spring. Expected would have to jury rig an external spring or flexible strap to add tension to the clutch pedal. Tried the repaired tractor without adding an external spring & realize clutch seems to work okay. Question: am I hurting my new clutch assembly by running tractor like this?
