JD550 STEERING CLUTCHES
|The John Deere Model 550's have oil type
steering clutches and use 8 Friction discs p/n T82355 composite paper faced discs on a
steel toothed base along with 8 steel separator plates p/n T31732.
When later JD models were developed they used bimetallic discs to replace the earlier style fiber discs. Some owners prefer the earlier bimetallic friction discs. The bimetallic disc part number is T44129. This was replaced by the paper faced friction discs T82355. Some owners still prefer the Bimetallic discs so it is your choice. The same numbers of discs were used in all circumstances. Most of the time you can get by with only changing the friction discs. The steel separator plates can usually be re-used. Check them for roughness, warping, or dishing and if they are clean, smooth, and straight, by all means re-use them!

The T20717 steel separator plates(used in the
earlier JD450's) are often confused with the T31732 plates used in the later steering
clutches of the JD500's. To be sure which plates you have in your clutch the
thickness should be measured. The T20717 will measure closer to .087 while the later
T31732 discs will be closer to .097-.099. If the quantity of your discs varies from
what is normally required, it is usually caused by the mis-use of the wrong steel
