powermax - whats belt stop piece for ?

Recommended Posts

hi what the purpose of the small metal bar that crosses the 2 belts on the r. side of the tractor - the manual calls it a belt stop - it dosent appear to do anything with stopping the belts ? - is it supposed to press on the belts alittle to add more tension so they dont slip ? - or what - mine was hitting the pulley after i put in the new honda motor so cut off the upright and backed it away from the belts - but know even after adjusting the spring tension it seems like my belts are not tight enough and slipping - thanks alot ?

The belt stops are designed to keep the belt from being throwen off track and to keep them from spinning when disengaged. Maybe someone else can exsplain it a little better. Ray

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
