Need help on PTO clutch problem
Hello, I can use some help.
I have a Simplicity Regent mower, it has a fairly common PTO clutch on it. I removed the clutch to replace the drive belt, then when that was done I reinstalled the clutch, but now the blades run whether the clutch switch is on or off.
What did I do wrong reinstalling the clutch? It seems there isn't enough looseness for the clutch to disengage? DId I tighten the main bolt/nut too much? Is that possible? I know that there are three adjustment bolts on the clutch for adjusting the play, but I don't think those were affected by my removal/reinstallation of the PTO clutch.
I know there is a simple explanation but I'm not seeing it. Thank you for any help you can give me.
