I have both a gator and a mule and have found it impossible to get the idle low enough to stop the belt for transmission shifting. Both are old so now I think its the clutch springs allowing inward movement too soon. I don't have a tach so can't verify this. Anyone out there know a source for clutch parts?

If it's the drive clutch (on the engine) that isn't opening up enough, your probably right that it needs attention. Be advised, when I went to rebuild the driven clutch on our diesel 6x4 it absolutely would not come off in one piece. I literally had to cut it into pieces to get it off. So there was no question of a rebuild. I rebuilt the drive clutch and installed a new driven clutch and all has been good. I really like the snowmobilers technique for primary clutch removal--that is to lay the engine on its side, fill the clutch retaining bolt cavity with water, and then thread in a bolt with teflon tape on it into the flywheel(clutch) removal tool threads. Then you're using hydraulic pressure to remove the clutch. Of course it's not so easy to turn a gator of mule on it's side, but it might be worth it.
