Default International TD6 engine clutch installation

I have removed the engine clutch from my TD6 with the engine out. The engine was rebuilt and reinstalled while the clutch was being sorted. I now have to reinstall the clutch and cannot figure out how it all goes back in. I can fit the pressure plate and spline but then can't get the drive plate in. If I try to install the whole assembly it does not clear the flywheel. I am sure there is a trick but can't find. Any help would be appreciated, although I am getting quite a bit of exercise lifting the mongrel around.

I may have a book for a td-9, should be bout the same . Not pos, but I was thinking clutch has to go on before engine goes in, but it's been years since I did a td- 9. I will try to find my books and see if they show anything. thanks; sonny

I have had clutches that you had to compress the fingers so the pesure plate is released and put little pieces of metal in to keep it released and take them out after.

Wasn't there a provision to compress the pressure plate by bolts through the back plate and threaded into the drive plate? Once you have it in place and bolted up, you remove the compress bolts to release the drive plate. It's been decades since I worked in the clutch on these but this comes to mind. Of course this would be for a foot operated clutch .

Thanks for all the info. I also have a TD9 and the clutch removal is slightly different. A couple of the other replies I think may be referring to the steering clutched not the engine clutch. I will keep mucking around with various combinations, hopefully something will work.

I have a TD6 manual down in the shop, I will look at it tomorrow.

Here is a scan of the manual page on installation. Hope it's clear enough, the page doesn't fit totally flat in the scanner...
Well, the scan was too big a file for this site to handle, so here is a pic of the page...hope it's readable.

Yeah, I'm not sure about that manual, it's a cheap ebay reprint...looks like the installation is mixed in with the assembly of the clutch. And there's no picture of the installation...
As if that's not confusing enough, there were 2 different clutches-Rockford or Auburn...
Looks like dbooth either got it in or got scared off...

Working on either a W-9 or WD-9 clutch we found removing a couple of the bolts for a bearing housing inside the clutch housing on the transmission gave just enough room to sneak the clutch assembly into place. Its been a while back but I would think a crawler would be similar to the wheeled tractors in that area.

Was the WD9 a hand clutch? The crawler clutch is an over-center hand clutch.

No, They are a clutch with a pressure plate so my suggestion is irrelevant.

I couldn't remember if the WD's had the hand clutch as an option...
