His CIH 495 had the same clutch/pressure plate and bearings as above and it had the clutch pedal without the return spring but no plastic spacer. His CIH 3230, two generations newer than the 585 being worked on had the same clutch kit as above plus the plastic spacer between throughout bearing and pressure plate fingers and again no return spring on the clutch pedal. According to the CIH parts person there was a serial number break on the 3230 as to 11" or 12" clutch. My brother's was an early 3230 and had the 11" clutch same as his IH 454, 474, 684 and 495. The 3230 has been a loader tractor since early 2002 and this was the first clutch replacement and after we got it split the problem was one of the adjustment bolts on the pressure plate had came loose and backed off some the finger was no longer moving the pressure plate enough to release the clutch disk. The clutch probably had enough pad thickness to do another year or so and the throughout bearing was good as well and that plastic spacer had protected the pressure plate fingers from wear. We decided to replace clutch, pressure plate and bearings and we re-used the plastic spacer as the kit that he bought from CIH did not include it.
