    JD 720 pony clutch adjustment

    I have measured the pin, it is 7/16 as required. Problem is it doesn't spin the motor over very well. It seems like it is slipping. Can it be adjusted or could the clutch be worn

    its adjustable, the procedure is in the service manual, dont think the operators manual has it. but it should be the same from the 70 through 830/840. The R i believe is different since its just a 2 cylinder pony. Its been awhile since i have had to mess with one so any "advice" i could offer would be from memory....
