The big nut on the back of the clutch pack, closest to the gear box is what you adjust clutches with. IDK the proper foot pounds, I just keep mine snugged up good is all. It doesn't take a lot if the clutches are good.

Adjust the clutch using wrench #1 (part number GY2256W) in the diagram. A standard wrench can also be used.

Loosen the nut a bit.
Engage the tractor PTO a few times to make certain the disc are not stuck together(if they are, the engagement and disengagement will help to un-stick the disc).
Snug up the nut.
Place a mark on the housing(#10) and the holder(#8). Use a soap-stone, or a colored marker.
Engage the PTO.
Tighten the nut until the housing and hub turn together(no movement/slippage).
Back off on the nut until there is very little movement/slippage.

At this point, the clutches will slip when the blades comes into contact with as obstacle.

Thanks guys! I kept Assuming the adjustment was in the front. Lordy, that’s a big nut! Calipers say 2 1/2”. I have a big crescent I thought would do it. Nope. Looking like a pipe wrench now or a custom wrench out of steel plate.

I see the wrench in the parts diagram. Guess I can get it from Deere.

Thanks again,
Murph
