To GERRY 93. I had viewed the video before installing the clutch kit. I have followed the instructions. This still leaves me with about a 2 inch length of cable that is too long. I have to lift the engage lever almost to the top before the clutch pulley begin to move to start the mower blades to turn. How do I get this "SLACK" out of the cable so that when I start to engage the lever, the clutch pulley will begin to move to tighten the belt to spin the mower blades? Also, can I send you a photograph of what I am talking about?
