    Default 513 JD rotary mower clutch setting

    I have a JD 513 rotary mower that I had to replace the clutches on. My question is ?ow much do I tighten the bolts on the tension springs from the first point of contact with the spring? ス turn past the point of contact? セ turn? 1 turn? I don稚 want it to be too tight and not slip when I hit something solid and tear up the gear box. With the clutches costing $80 I don稚 want them slipping either.

    Here is a picture of it: http://images55.fotki.com/v1604/phot...rclutch-vi.jpg

    Owners manual says adjust all 8 cap screws until all spring lengths are exactly 28 mm.
