    My Encore 52" Mid cut has a Kawaski FD62OD / 20 HP engine. The mower deck blades/clutch switch seems to pop in and out ?? Is there a belt adjustment I am missing or is it time for a new clutch . The mower is ten years old with only 400 hours. Thanks , Joe

    Thanks for the idea.Once I changed the belt the clutch no longer slips in and out. The original (worn ) belt was cranked all the way but continued to slip. With a new belt and a little tension it cuts great.Thanks again, joe
