    P/j,

    About how many hours of mowing time should an Air Gap Adjustment last? My PTO started messing up today, blades won't start when I pull the knob.

    Gene,

    It was adjusted around the end of May. I have about 175 hours on the adjustment.

    Gene,
    Basically, when the clutch hesitates to engage when it is hot it is time to adjust the air gap.
    We do not have a set interval for checking the air gap, due to the different applications this mower has (catcher or no catcher).

    If you still have problems after adjusting it, please have your dealer test the clutch.

    Hope this helps
