It was the dry clutch that was the issue with them. Borg and Beck has serious issues at the time with many other tractor manufacturers. The Organic clutch plate they were producing was delaminating in service leading to a dragging clutch which then was putting extra strain on the forward reverse synchro. If you swaped the clutch disc for a paddle cerametalic type they they would then squeek when setting off and eat the flywheels for fun!

Whatever compound was used in the clutch plates must of been banned or similar at that time as the older clutches were no bother. We were splitting every new tractor sold in less than 50hrs for over twelve months and swapping clutches right left and centre! It was the end of dry clutches in tractors!!
