Hi all,
How do you guys check the gap on the clutch after slipping? Can you get calipers inside the shield or do you remove the shield? If the you remove it, what's the best way to do that?

Most woods mowers have you check the spring length. Mine wants them to be 1.36" long or something. As far a s the gap, a feeler gauge might work- not sure.

I usually use a washer and space then all the same. Just depends on the slip clutch. I've repaired ones that they closed the springs down tight and it didn't slip and thrashed the gear box. No good

A feeler gauge or washer! Now I feel stupid. :)

Thanks guys. I'll use a spark plug gap tool. Then I can get a precise 4mm.

Yea as long as it's 4mm between clutch plate and Belleville spring. You got it!
