Why are you trying to adjust the low idle ? Are you experiencing hard to shift issues, with gear grinding?

Gear grinding yes! i've had it to the JD Dealer twice - shortly after it's back from the dealer it will not idle slowly enough for shifting. It's a race between shifting just before the motor stalls. Sensing a slight increase in rpms would solve the problem!

The root cause could very well be the Primary clutch is hanging up and not releasing the belt. Prolonged grinding can damage the low/high shift collars in the rear transfer (transmission). Servicing the Primary Clutch may certainly help with addressing the root cause, however there may be damage to shift collars.

This is not a lack of lubrication issue, these clutch’s are designed to be operated without any lubricants including dry varieties.

As a first step, try throughly cleaning both clutch’s with soapy hot water and or non chlorinated brake cleaner. Use nylon brushes, including a toothbrush to clean properly, followed by compressed air.

If this doesn’t help, there numerous posts on Primary Clutch issues with email contact information to the Clutch Doc (JD Clutch Doc) if you should need help.
