Does anyone know if the engine clutch can be adjusted on a D14?? If so, how? My manual says to go through the inspection opening on the bottom of the clutch housing. Is this possible? Need some advice and instructions. Thanks.

Slow down!

Before you go splitting your tractor, search the forum as this was discussed not oo long ago.

The D14 and D15 Series I are very similar. Per the D15 shop manual:

"As the clutch lining wears, the clutch release bearing clearance becomes lesser, and the clutch pedal free movement will gradually diminish. There must always be some free pedal movement before starting to release the clutch, otherwise it will lead to clutch slippage or failure of the clutch release bearing.

To adjust the clutch release bearing clearance, or the clutch pedal free movement, disconnect the clutch rod from the pedal. To do this, remove the snap ring and slide the pedal outward on pivot pin until the clutch rod can be disconnected without difficulty.

Shorten clutch rod by turning clockwise to increase the clutch release bearing clearance. Adjust the length of rod until there is 1/4" plus or minus 1/32" between clutch release bearing and clutch release levers with clutch rod attached to pedal."

Note, the "release levers" are within the torque tube and can only be adjusted by splitting the tractor. From the same page of the shop manual:

"The only time necessary to adjust the clutch release levers is when clutch has been disassembled and new parts installed."

Scroll down the page a little to the D15II clutch discussion. I think they're the same. There's a set screw and jam nut on each arm. You could possibly get on one with a wrench, but then turn it? And that doesn't account for holding one while tightening the other. I just split my newly purchased D15 and it took about a half day from start to where I had it back together enough to try it. There's just not much to them.
