Default John Deere 5425 needs dry clutch adjustment

My JD 5425 4wd, 2005 model, purchased new, has a dry clutch with a cable to the clutch pedal that has been adjusted once at 50 hours(645 total hours) by a JD mechanic but even then the cable was too long. The cable needs further adjustment but cannot be made shorter, it has been shortened as far as it can go. When I step on the clutch pedal, the motor is not fully disengaged, and there is a whirring noise. What can I do short of taking the tractor to a dealer?

I spoke with a John Deere service manager and I am taking the tractor in next Tuesday. He said he MAY to able to replace the cable, which would be the quickest fix. If not the tractor may have to be torn apart, and then see what happens. A throwout bearing could be involved, lets hope not.

Here's hoping it's the cable as well, breakdowns can be costly.

Turns out the clutch is ok, still has 75% wear left. John Deere mechanic is replacing the clutch cable, but the whirring noise was from an input shaft bearing, which is also being replaced.

Turns out the carrier bearing was bad and the guide for the bearing was worn. The guide for the throw out bearing was worn. And the clutch cable had been stretched and was replaced. The cable may have been the incorrect one from day one.
