Important! Secure the diff lock pedal in the fully down position before you remove the right hand wheel reductio. The diff lock sleve will drop down into the rear axle if you do not keep the pedal down for the time the reduction is removed.

Thanks for the heads up on the diff lock Ollek I really appreciate it.
On another more serious note: yesterday while tedding hay A bad thing happened..
One of the hinge points on the pressure plate for the pto side of the clutch broke off and made a mess of things..
How did this happen you may ask, well long story shortened, upon dis assembly of the clutch in the beginning it was stuck to flywheel, my brother bumped it with a bar and it popped free flying off of the engine and smashing my hand in the process, then hitting the floor and breaking off a boss of the pressure plate for drive clutch....
Thus warranting the pressure plate replacement. Well it damaged more than we thought ... SOOOO now I need to replace the entire unit and there is not a single one available here in the US.....
What a shame too as it was working perfectly except for the sticky brake.. well now its back in the shop for it to get split and hopefully I will be able to find a clutch assembly somewhere? As I really liked how this tractor turns and handles.

Once you have the old damaged clutch assembly out take it to some local shops that sell brakes and clutches. That is all I did here and in under a minute the guy had an assembly in stock and put it on the counter. You just might find the same thing can happen. Some retailers ask what is it out of and when you tell them they dont want to know about it, but say have you got one of these they too may recognise it and say yes.

Tried that the first time.... over here the parts people are "special" if you know what I mean..... put them in a room full of rocks and the IQ level of the room will drop by 10 points!

A rebuild clutch cover assembly including 11" main plate for 996, 1200, 1210 and 1212 is available from the following company in the uk http://www.davidbrownparts.com/Clutch.html Looks like the following company also holds the Borg & Beck 11" dual clutch https://www.bare-co.com/files-profile

Tried David Brown Parts . They don't have one ... oh boy.. this is not looking good... I may need to make a 12" 1394 type clutch fit if at all possible? I have a few more places to call but things are not looking good at the moment...

Making progress, the nice gentleman I talked to at DB parts gave me a contract here in the states and they are right on it and believe they can get me the parts I need and if not he knows how to convert it to the newer 12 inch units.

1 hour and 15 minutes later I have my 996 split in half... OUCH! It didn't do much damage to the remaining linkage but it sure destroyed the drive clutch throw out bearing to oblivion.... gad zukes... I think I may need to replace the sleeve it is pressed on to...
Boy that one little mistake sure got expensive! Nuts. . ......

The benefits of following the manual and checking the work as it progresses. Glad you have found a clutch assembly so it wont be long before you can go out and play again.

I have not forgotten about you folks, just been busy making hay and now fixing both the 996 and my NH 575 baler!
The 996 is waiting for the clutch assembly to arrive, hopefully today? And the 575.... well.... SOMEONE..... not mentioning any names..(DAD!). raked the windrow or sward as the Europeans call them, on top of a rather large stone.....( boulder more like it )large enough to mangle the supersweep pickup on the baler! Never saw it under all the hay... And the 1594 has ABSOLUTELY no mercy on anything it pulls and now I'm left with a big mess... I hate new fields.....
Dang... I need the 996 going so I enjoy raking! I wont rake with that 2120 NH nuttless ,don't turn , lousy hydraulics,
Poorly clutched turd box! The ole man loves that thing too... I would rather use a team of horses ....
"Red" as we call the 1594, is not good for raking as it gets him all smoky from a lack of work and its a huge waste of fuel too. The 996 is retardedly good on fuel! Best rig I have for fuel efficiency I think? Red is pretty dang good too when he's working hard, but joy riding around the field... not so good? Why is this ?
Anyways this is where I am at , making a few pins and bushings for bits on the baler and waiting...

Well I recieved the new pressure plate assembly...... box was destroyed and repackaged... top ring for pto side was dis-lodged and pto disc missing.... unreal! Called vendor to report damages and I won't know for sure if anything is out of wack until the new pto disc shows up so I can install it and inspect for damages.... gad zukes what a pain.. UPS has to be one of the worst carriers there is to use....

The pto disc is not a part of any pressure plate assembly. The pto disc must be ordered separately.

Correct, it was ordered with the assembly but UPS managed to destroy the box it was shipped in and lost the disc and replaced it with a ratchet strap set instead....
