NOTE: The adjustments to the left steering clutch are the same as the adjustment to the right steering clutch.
1. Release the brake pedals.
2. Make sure there are no bent linkages.
3. Loosen nut (3) and adjust bolt (2) to obtain dimension (A) between steering clutch housing and head of bolt. Tighten nut (3).

NOTE: On vehicles equipped with hand steering, the steering levers must be against the stop.
