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

Nice score!

I cant believe how great the condition it is in, unbelievable.

Im sure there will be some Gravely folks here shortly to answer your questions, and be sure to check the manuals section in the meantime.

And by all means, welcome aboard ;)

If the tested method is good using the wrench is is worth spending the money to have a new pto clutch installed or not? It's about 800 dollars or should I just sale the tractor as is and keep the implements?

If I read the info correctly, the free play from the lever to the back end of the slot in the cover shield should be  1&3/8"-1&1/2" when engaged.

I went off this and it said .5 to 1.0 inch. I hope I'm not wrong could you shed some more light on this for me

I also got this tractor which also has a 50" deck and has been completely redone and is amazing condition but don't know if I should keep it as well if I out a brand new pto clutch in the other mower? What a dilemma
