Depends if it's adjustable or not remove mower deck and look at motor shaft you'll see clutch (it's got a wire going to it) if three springs are held in with rivets then it's not adjustable you'll need to relpace it if it's got three phillips head screws then in a alternate pattern try tighting each one half a turn and test it , if screws bottom out replace clutch

Is there any adjustments to the electric clutch on a 2007 John Deere X340? I have a slight noise issue when the clutch is not engaged.

There is no adjustment but the clutch does have a bearing in it that rotates only when it is disengaged. This may be what you are hearing.

What is the clutch adjustment for 2003 HD Electric Glide Classic

To adjust the clutch, follow the clutch cable until you find the cable adjuster. Move the adjuster cover up or down to expose the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the adjuster to get as much slack as possible.

Now, remove the derby cover. Loosen the locknut in center of the clutch assembly. Turn the center bolt inwards until you feel a resistance. Do not force the bolt, just turn it inward until you feel a resistance. Then back the bolt back out 1/2 turn and lock the locknut. Replace the derby cover.

Now, go back to the cable adjuster and adjust it back out until you have about 1/8" freeplay. Squeeze the clutch lever a few times and recheck the freeplay. Lock the locknut and replace the cover.

Good Luck

your clutch may be burnt up, but try adjusting the clutch cable out a little more, or if you have a hydraulic clutch fill it with fluid and prime it.

Electric clutch adjustment

.012" is the recommended air gap for the electric clutch. Use a feeler guage in the slots beside the nuts and check in circular pattern. Go at least 3 complete circles with your guage when adjusting.

Hope this helps,

Simplicity sunstar 20hp rear pto won't engage deck when you flip the switch, it used to work for a while and I could play with it and it would work but now nothing, any suggestions.

your electric clutch may need adjustment. Take the hood off. Look behind the double pulley that's on the crank shaft. Behind the pulley is an electric clutch. You will need a .010-.015 feeler gage and check between the clutch plates. You will tighten the three screws that mount the clutch to the motor. Try and get as close to .010" as you can. After adjustment start the motor and try and engage the pto. I bet it will work.

Good luck
