Did you download the manual(s) I linked to earlier? They will tell you how to adjust it. One part adjusts the clutch, the other adjusts the clutch brake. I don't want to read the manual for you..... or to you. If you read it and don't understand, that is fine, ask then.

I stop near the yard hydrant and wash her off and then put her back in the barn. I touch the clutch maybe 4-5 times every other weekend and no I do not ride the clutch. The mechanic told me not to do that.
Doesn't sound like enough use to cause any adjustment issues. Perhaps something is loose, or didn't stay tight.

If the sediment bowl is clean, the carb should be too. What makes you think it has something in the carb? Water also collects in the sediment bowl. You have to dump it out/clean it on occasion.
