Vari-Drive Belt Question

Recommended Posts

Kent
I discovered the same discrepancy when adjusting the Varidrive on my B-210. I don't know why it is pblished both ways. I'm not sure, but I don't think this is a critical measurement, since it must change as the belt wears, over time. What is critical is that the belt stop does, in fact, stop the belt when you depress the clutch fully. Otherwise, the gears will grind. It took me a couple of times running through the adjustment procedure before I got it "just right" on my B-210. Now, I get to look forward to doing it again, since I plan to replace the belt prior to the tilling/wmowing season....

Looking through the SimpleTractors web site I ran across a page that had a diagram of the vari-drive belt adjustment procedure. This is basically the same as the diagram in my B-210 owners manual, however, the dimension (3) for the axle tube to belt stop is different. The web page shows 9-1/4" whereas my owners manual shows 8-7/8". The Simplicity Large Frame Garden Tractors Repair Manual also lists the dimension as 8-7/8". What is the correct setting and why the discrepancy?

        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
