    5105m clutch adjusting question

    5105M ......foot clutch is getting harder and harder to feather wants to grab and go ......to the point i usually use the power reverser to do the clutching as it engages and reverses smoothly...

    is there a way i can do my own adjustments? ....or is this a dealer software modulation type issue requiring a trip to dealer?

    I found this on line how to do it. Look on the list on the left for clutch adjustment.http://manuals.deere.com/omview/OMRE72817_19/
    They have a picture showing the parts.
    Check and Adjust Clutch Pedal Free Play
    Measure free play (A) at top of pedal stroke. Adjust linkage to obtain 13 ± 3 mm (0.511 ± 0.118 in.) free play.
    To adjust linkage, loosen lock nut (B), remove cotter pin (C), washer (D), retaining pin (E) and return spring (F). Rotate clevis. After making adjustment, replace clip, pin, washer and return spring and check free play. When free play is correct, tighten lock nut.

    B-Lock Nut
    C-Cotter Pin
    D-Washer
    E-Retaining Pin
    F-Return Spring

    thank you for looking......but as confusing as it seems....mine is a 5105m ...not a 5105 .....huge huge huge difference ....the maintanace manual on the 5105m says have the dealer adjust.....i dont have a service manual...this would be similar or same as the 5085m pre tier 4 and the 5095m....i think it requires a software modulation adjustment but not sure

    I would get a service manual. An invaluable tool to have around.

    Calibrating the clutch is a dealer software issue. Don't know of any way to do it without plugging in a computer. There is a possibility you have a malfunctioning modulation valve, RE177539. Have seen a few of them cause the modulation problem you are having. #7 in diagram. It is recommended the transmission be recalibrated after installation of new one, but just installing new one makes a huge difference if old one is malfunctioning. It is an expensive valve to change without being sure though, around $300.
