Think it must be easier to split the tractor to get clutch out, and back in.

I've seen this happen to a 1594, a 1412, and even our 1394. Gives a big mess.

Its a 1690 and most of the clutch and chassis ended up a big pile of metal chunks all along the road .I have managed to source all the bits to rebuild i hope but have afew other tractors on the go a the moment.Never seen this happen to any tractor before.

This happened to me about 8 years ago with our 1394. It happened at full revs. It was a very violant blast, blowing cast iron pieces through the cabin. The whole bellhousing was totally destroyed. The hydraulic hoses connected to the steering unit on the bellhouses were cut of. Also a big hole in the engine chassis underneath.

I wonder wether the Laycock or the Borg and Beck were vulnerable for exploding? I thougt in a 1690 were Laycocks mounted.
