Grinding transmission

Recommended Posts

Salthart
Your trouble is the transmission belt is still trying to turn when the clutch is pressed.Take a look under the tractor at the 2 "L" brackets near the top pulley. use a good light so you can see. Try and tell if they have been moved. Also take a look at the transmission belt while you are there. if the belt is "Limp", soft or has cracks in it,, Replace it. Ok, back to the "L" shaped belt guides.. THey are there to hold the belt from falling from the pulley.. But also to hold the belt in a loop. Think of how a belt looks when you see one with the cardboard sleeve still around it.. The ends make a Loop..Well, this is what the belt guides do also. When set up correctly the belt will stand out from the pulleys. Grease and oil will also make a belt "Creep" while the clutch is pressed. And also leads to the soft belt I mentioned before. Good luck Salthart

HI, The above post is correct. When the clutch is engaged, the belt guides under the engine should be withing 1/16 and 1/8" of the belt. When the clutch is released, the belt "springs" out against the guides and this stops the belt from "coasting" and causing the tranny to still turn. Anytime you have grinding gears and a belt tightener clutch, check the belt guides 99% of the time this is the cause. The other thing these guides do is keep the belt "squeezed" to keep it from riding against the pulley on the front side of the engine and burning a spot in the belt when the unit engine is running with the clutch disengaged. The same thing happens with mower drive belts. Good luck, My 2 cents worth and its free value accordingly. Al Eden

Yes when I am try to shift the gears grind. Salthart, the only keeper under the tractor is in the front of the engine pulley. Were should the l shapped ones be? Who far behind the pulley. I dont see where they would have been.

Elon, Thanks for the invite. If I ever get that far north I will look you up. I have a daughter that lives in Norristown, PA and that's about as far as I've gone in a long while. Isabel hasn't been very bad here, just a little windy and rainy, we're about 300 miles inland and all is well.
