    Youtube to the rescue

    I mowed my lawn on Friday with my John Deere 332 tractor. Got all done and shut off the blades via the switch on the dash that controls the electric clutch for the mower deck, then drove it back to the garage to park it. While heading back I saw a section of grass that I missed... no problem, just engage the blades and mow the small area. I flipped the switch and NOTHING! The clutch would not engage.
    I checked the switch and it was fine. Before heading to the JD dealer and shell out approx. $300 I decided to check the net for advise.
    Found a youtube video that someone made showing exactly how to adjust the clutch and solve the problem. After about 20 mins with a feeler gauge and a wrench the clutch is now working! Sorry John Deere I won't be getting a new clutch just yet.

    YouTube has saved my bacon more times than I can count! I've probably save enough to buy another little British car from doing ion myself with YouTube's help.

    Replaced the mother-board of our refrigerator with on-line instructions/video... and the starter battery on my wife's Prius... and the main control board on our dryer. Ain't the interweb-tubes grand!

    Speaking of YouTube videos, I just posted a video I made of an easy method for getting stuck rotors off. I posted in the Tools and Restoration forum.
