Kubota L 4200 clutch replacement

We, [Wild Bill mostly] will be replacing the clutch in the Tractor in 2 weeks. Any suggestions, thoughts, advice?

Bill
I didn't think one used the clutch in a GST tranny tractor. What happened for the clutch to go out?

Do you have the shop manual for the L4200? 

Here are a couple links to some posts that may help, one includes a cross-section of the clutch.

We all use the clutch, never got used to not pushing it in when shifting or changing directions.
I bought the tractor used and have treated it pretty much like a dozer. I think most of the issue started when I was clearing woods with the bush hog. I figured if I could push a tree over then I could munch it up with the  bush hog. Too many times I stalled the tractor out that way. ( I now have a slip clutch installed)
Just lost it's get up and go power. We've been adjusting the clutch pretty regular but it looks like we ran out of threads.

One thing of concern is a couple years ago when I was changing out the hydraulic filter I found cellophane stuck down into the old filter like someone put one on without taking the protection film off the new filter. Hopefully this didn't work it's way into a valve body or something.

Got a service manual?

Most need to be split at the bell housing/steering wheel and pulled apart to get to the clutch pack.

Cribbing for support after you split it.

Most tractors you need to remove all the FEL brackets to split them.

We made a set of brackets to hold the FEL when we take it off and started dribbling Blue Creeper on fittings and threads.
The plan is to block the front then roll the back away to expose the clutch. DanG suggested to keep the brush hog attached and the PTO engaged for a counter weight and so we can turn the shaft for lining up the splines.

When blocking up the front end, don't forget to put blocks or wedges between the frame and engine so the engine assembly can't rotate around the front axle pivot point.

That's a start.
Two LT70s and to much other support equipment to mention.

I tried to help an older friend and one other fellow roll the back end of a Cockshutt 30 forward to bolt up to the front half after some clutch work. On dirt and a bit irregular so I suggested two cable winches, one for each side. He was able to join the two halves by himself in a leisurely controlled fashion.

Quote from r.man, "He was able to join the two halves by himself in a leisurely controlled fashion" just be patient, and line things up right.

Getting the front drive shaft to line up is hampering us now. It runs inside the case on the bottom and has a sleeve so we can't get on to turn and line up the teeth. We are able to turn the main shaft via either the PTO or crank but that won't spin the bottom/front shaft.
