I got my JD 655 tiller out today and was going to check & adjust the slip clutch on it. Well, after I took the PTO shaft off the tiller, I can only get to one end of the slip clutch assembly. There are eight hex (allen) head bolts, but no way to get at the nuts, if there are any. The bolts may just be threaded in to a plate too, I can't tell.
I want to make sure the clutch isn't seized up. The tiller sits out in the weather (covered with a tarp), so I wanted to check it.
Any one know how to check and adjust this type of slip clutch?
I appreciate your help. Thanks!
