All you Murray experts. Where is the actual clutch located on a Murray rider model 425014x92b? I adjusted the clutch and it releases at the extreme top of the pedal travel. MechanicMark answered and said it was too tight. I agree with him but now I wondering where the ACTUAL clutch is located. Is it inside the transmission? I would like to inspect it while I have the mower deck off the mower.
Thanks in advance to all.

No actual clutch. The drive belt is tensioned by a spring loaded idler pulley, when you push in on the clutch/brake you pull the tensioner off the belt enough to allow the belt to slip. When you let the pedal up the spring tensions the idler and tightens the belt. As long as the mower pulls itself up hills the drive system is working correctly.
