    I've been putting my 52 inch toro wb through it lately. Its a belt drive t-bar float deck kawasaki engine mower. Well, the clutch is starting to squeal when I engage blades. Its getting worse and worse. I've heard you can adjust this. Is it just adjusting the engine idle pulley?
    Thanks

    Are you sure it's the clutch? It could be the belt squealing when you engage the clutch. Try letting up on the throttle befroe you engage the blades to see if that helps.

    I hear there's a thing called an owners manual.

    Bruce, thats kinda a jerk comment. You never asked anyone for advice?

    It is the belt squealing, and it does help to engage at half throttle, however it did'nt used to do this.

    How old is the current belt on the machine? It might be time to get a new one that is not worn down the the point where it is squeeling.

    Your owners manual covers this. I use toros and know it's in there. You're just too lazy to even read it. If you check my posts I have helped a lot of people here with very long posts. But yours is a waste of everybody's time. It's not that far from asking "I pulled the cord on my mower and it doesn't start the first time. What should I do?"

    Lube your dang deck idler pulley. There, happy?
