    Hello ..I have a 03 zero 60 with the 26 efi motor ...
    I was doing some routine mantenance when I noticed that it takes a little bit more effort to turn the clutch plate then I thought it should .. I was rotating to see how freely it turned to notice that it takes about 1/2 to 3/4 lbs pressure to turn ,,, like its draging some on the clutch plate or some thing ?
    Its the borg warner type ,,, ? Is this normal or should I look into ? thanks already ron

    Most like likely the force you're experiencing is the clutch brake at work. The clutch is either in an engaged position or in a brake position.

    Well it should not be easy. Most electric clutches have a built in brake that stops the the pulley/blades when the clutch is disengaged. That is probably the drag you are talking about...
