My First Tractor - Need Help with Proper Clutch adjustment on M-500

There seems to be 3 different items that need to be adjusted when it comes to adjusting a clutch on this kind of tractor.
My first tractor ever. I got it last year and started using it this year. Now the clutch seems to be slipping after I used it to pull some trees and then started using the bush hog.
There are 3 items involved:
1. The spring the brings the pedal back to rest
2. The throw out bearing and where it should be when not in use
3. The clutch pressure plate / disc.
I think I got #1 & 2 figured out. Today, it wasn't raining and I was able to remove the cover located at the bottom of the bellhousing. I can see one of the fingers that needs to be adjusted. There is a screw or bolt with a lock or jam nut.
I'm not sure how to adjust the pressure plate/ disc or if I need any special tools or not?
