Working on a Snapper RER. The friction wheel is new and gets good contact. Mower has plenty of power, enough to do wheelies.

The problem is, the only way to get the clutch to engage is to stomp the clutch pedal. Letting it out slowly won't work. I have to let it out fast and end up doing a wheelie every time.

I've hosed it off and blown it out with air. Sprayed all the rotating points I can see with WD. It doesn't have a brake currently, so that's not it.

I'll put it up on jack stands so I can look under it and see what it's doing.

Appreciate any ideas.

Yeah I've been doing that, but not while it's running. I put it up on a jack so I could put it in gear and look under it to see what it was doing. The friction wheel isn't making contact unless it slaps into position really firm. I'll see about getting more tension on the spring.

I took the spring off and took it to Ace. They had every spring you could imagine. Matched it up with one just a hair shorter and with much more tension. It isn't perfect, but it's a lot better.
