    I have a older scag walk behind hydro. This thing runs great , starts on the first pull every time. My question is when after an one hour of mowing the blades don't want to engage after its warmed up

    If your clutch looks like the one below there is three slots in part # 5 to insert a 0.012 feeler gage and adjust the three nuts until you feel a little drag on the gage. But only move each nut a little at a time because one will throw the other out.

    Read your manual to see what the hours are to adjust your clutch or check it once a week

    Thanks for that info I was looking for it this week. I took the opportunity to adjust several units. If the unit is squeaking on start up does that probably mean it is down to the rivets? Or does the one that don't squeak mean it is slipping a lot on start-up:confused:

    This may be a silly question but where would I find the clutch on my Toro 44 mower?

    Look up under the back of the mower frame where the engine mounts, The clutch is on the end of the engine crankshaft.
