Hello all I'm pretty new to the rider gravely but have owned several walk behinds I just bought a 8173 kt and I think the pto clutch is slipping I adjusted the linkage to just over a 1/2 inch before hitting the floor plate and I was told if u engaged the pto clutch and took a wrench on output shaft going to mower deck it should not turn but mine did with not a lot of effort. Used 14" pipe wrench I don't know if this is accurate or not. The blades on the deck were not very sharp and I noticed in taller grass I could watch the pto shaft slow down while cutting my yard and of course had to swing around and cut again the tractor has a little over 1700 hours. Wish I could post pics got a few other questions
