    JD 717 rotary cutter Slip Clutch help

    OK, so I was mowing with my JD 2640 and the JD 717 in tow when the slip clutch went on the JD 717. I've adjusted it out (previous owner wore it out I believe) and it still is slipping horribly. What parts do I need to replace in the clutch. The JD 717 is a little different than most slip clutches I looked up online. Has the four bolts that you loosen to adjust the clutch slippage. Thank you. picture is what it looks like.

    Welcome to GTT
    Only thing that normally needs replaced on a slipping clutch is linings(key 2) unless plates(key 4 or 5) or disk springs(keys 7 &/or 8) are damaged

    Slip clutch discs

    Check out Agrifab for the friction discs. Measure yours for outer and inner diameter first. They've got all sizes. My experience has been that JD dealers don't have just the friction discs. Agrifab had discs for my Frontier 647 tiller for less than $30. Call Agrifab.
