The clutch on my barn find machine would always engage the first time when cutting grass. When it came to a water break it wouldn't engage unless I tapped it. Hopefully an adjustment has cured this. Specs call for .010 to .015 gap. Picture is

the way I found it. I tightened the four nuts till I had it at .015. Then brought it to. 011 by tightening in a circle a very little bit at a time. Hope this helps someone. I love my little Amazon hoist.

My clutch* started this way, ie, the nuts loosened and gap increased and clutch wouldn't engage. Went like this a couple years but got worse and finally it both stopped engaging and blew the fuse.

A new/rewound coil should be here Tues.

* - likely the same as yours, but with a different pulley - TroyBilt GTX 20 w/Vee twin

One of the nylok nuts is a bit loose I'll be replacing them. Hopefully it will help mine last. Next year I plan to purchase a reworked unit just so I have a spare.

Taking the hood off is the way to go as it is a fight for access if you don't. Also, those clutch plates have a fair amount of run out, so I spin the pulley to find the tight spot and adjust closer to .010.

Correct, plus he checks yours to be sure it's bad.
Guys' name is Frank - 401-965-2221, he sells on both e-bxx and c-list, if you call (c-list) it's a bit cheaper. Very nice guy to work with and the re-wound coils are well done.

Indeed, I wasn't even going to attempt the task with the hood on. I left it around .011.
