 idle speed vs clutch springs

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?

 idle speed vs clutch springs

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.
