412 clutch

Post by bfr123 » 1st February 2016 - 12:59pm

Hi Guys, anyone know where I can get a clutch plate for my 412? I can get the full kit but I only require the clutch plate as I have a new pressure plate.

There are various combinations. You could try phoning Jane and Bryan on the farm in Kent - 01303840374 (workshop). I'm sure they will be able to sort you out, or at least give you some info.

I had the same trouble. Seems clutch plates, especially 210mm, are near impossible to find. I opted for relining at a local company. They did a cracking job at a very reasonable forty quid.

Shortly after my getting plate relined I found a NOS one on ebay, the vendor had three of them! I think Volksfarmers had the last one a week or so ago.

Had to have my clutch rebuilt as the center plate on the friction plate had split. All in all it cost me £138.00 including new friction plate and new pressure plate which was machined to fit the friction plate. This was great for the first few miles when I broke down as I couldn't engage gears. Seems like the slave cylinder on the gearbox has packed up as I have stripped the master and it seems to be ok.
