Default John Deere 317 Mower Clutch

The electric PTO clutch on the front of the engine has started slipping is there any way to tighten it?
I don't have any manuals for the tractor so I have no exploded views of the clutch to help.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to MTF okietool.

There are plenty of folks here on the form that know about those clutches and how to adjust them. I'm sure one of them will be along shortly with that information.

Check this out from MTF.

Stash gives instructions for a 318 clutch adjustment.
