Adjusting Clutch Pedal & Fingers

Postby Stanton » Tue Oct 29, 2013 8:29 am

It appears that the tractor has to be together (i.e. not split) for the clutch pedal to be adjusted. I've already adjusted the clutch fingers to 1-1/4" per the manual (Blue Ribbon Service Manual, GSS-1008, Specifications, p.25).

I'm just wanting to make sure before I join the two halves, that there isn't some way to adjust the TOB/pedal (to get the proper 1-3/16" free travel), because it's a lot easier to do it standing up than laying on your back. :)

Yes, the tractor has to be together for the pedal adjustment. I have not done the adjustment with the internal rod adjustment mechanism...both of my cubs have the slotted external adjustment mechanism which makes it much easier to do.

Hengy called it right, and as you have figured out, that is a pain with the turnbuckle. an alternative is to pull the torque tub off the transmission and change the pedal and tube it mounts to, clutch rod, and throwout hanger bracket. the good thing about not changing all that is that unless something goes wrong it very seldom has to be done. Be sure to grease the throwout bearing while it is apart, because the turnbuckle one is a pain to grease after it is assembled. A grease injector helps a lot with greasing it once it is assembled.

the point allows you to push the check ball back and inject grease into the fitting.
