Have you removed the 4 bolts that holds the front of the gear box cover to the clutch cover and the wedge from between these two parts? Why are you removing the clutch cover? It is not possible to remove the clutch as the pto drive shaft is inside the transmission clutch shaft and the transmission clutch drive shaft is in one piece between the clutch and the 12-speed gear box. For a clutch repair you need to split the tractor between the engine and the cultch cover / gear box frame.

i am having problems withe clutch engasgement so i am checking from the top before i go further, tghere is a 990 getting the clutch done next farm to me, the fitter has removed, clutch housing, steering box, gearbox cover and pto housing, this allows full access to draw the pto shaft and remove clutch without splitting tractor, assuming same can be done with the 1210

I never understand why people change clutches in Db tractors without splitting them.

It's far easier and quicker than taking the gearbox top cover off and the pto unit off , draining the oil out etc all of which is unnecessary on a 990. Far easier and quicker to just roll the two halves apart fit a new clutch and roll it back together

JamesF is absolutely right. Changing the clutch in a DB tractor working from the top is time consuming. Splitting the tractor is the way the manufacturer recommended and this is the best way of doing it.

People sometimes seem to have a mental block about splitting tractors, as though it's a mammoth task. Really, with a trolley jack and smooth floor it's very straightforward and requires very little in the way of mechanical ability, it's just plain unbolting things.

did you pop out the wedge at the rear of the cover? It is clamped in by 4 horizontal bolts that are in the little holes under the steering box. Bolt by oil filter? Starter bolts?


I still like to look at a clutch while the cover is off to make sure everything is happening the way I want. For a clutch first timer it is very informative.

On a 1210 even once the cover is loose, you have to split it about an inch before the cover will lift off as the rear has a lip that fits under the transmission cover. Even when you do get the cover off you still have to split it to change the clutch.
