||The John Deere Model 450B's originally used 9
fiber discs p/n T20716 and 8 steel separator plates p/n T31732 (T20717). When later models
were developed they used bimetallic discs to replace the earlier style fiber discs. The
bimetallic disc part number is T44129. 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!
To help "steer" you toward creating a superior steering clutch
we wanted to encourage you to use the bimetallic steering clutch discs and to eliminate
the old style fiber friction discs. To do this, we have discontinued the fiber friction
discs to make sure you get a superior clutch.
Because we have now eliminated our costs of buying and stocking the earlier style fiber
friction discs we were able to make the bimetallic friction discs in a larger less
expensive volume, letting us lower the bimetallic disc cost from $29.00 ea to $22.00 ea
STEERING CLUTCH TOOL
When putting your clutch together it is important to get the throwout bearing close to the
3 clutch release levers. JD makes a tool for this but as you have probably
discovered they do not sell the tool, and asking to borrow one, if they even have it,
well.....you are better off writing a letter to Santa. Luckily, Grimy Men stick together and help each
other......You can download a drawing of the tool from our website (CLICK HERE).
If you can print the file on 8 1/2 x 14 legal size paper you will have a good
pattern to get you going. You can get fancy or just make the tool from a manila
folder, cardboard, foam board, or whatever is handy.

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 JD450B's. To be sure which plates you have in your clutch the
thickness should be measured. The T20717 will measure closer to .087-.09 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 cause by the mis-use of the wrong steel
separator plates. The depth of the brake drum was deeper in the 450B.
To complete your JD 450B steering
clutch rebuild, we have produced NEW steering clutch pressure
plates, complete with mounting cover, springs, levers and pressure plate.
