How to correct an airgap that is too close

This 20 second snippet is from Ogura's full length troubleshooting online video. In this video segment, we show how to readjust an airgap on a mobile clutch and lawn and garden PTO clutch brake.

For mobile clutches, the cover may be bent, pushing on the armature.

The cover plate can be pried back, creating a proper airgap.

For PTO clutch brakes, the airgap may be too small.

Check the airgap with a feeler gauge and back off if necessary.
