    Now that I have some hours on the new clutch, I think mine was going bad for at least a year. Starting up the mower deck would stall the engine at any less than 70% throttle, and it started so abruptly that it once threw the mower deck belt off the right spindle sheave. However, the new clutch has a much softer engagement, and I can now start the mower deck below 50% throttle.

    There is usually (but not always) a burnishing or break-in procedure for new clutches. Could be worthwhile. ;)

    Yep.... did that. 10 seconds on, 10 seconds off, 10 times, mower deck drive connected, but no load (mowing) on deck.
