Why are my gears grinding?

Recommended Posts

FastPaul
Why on 3 tractors do the gears grind? B-1 B-112 3314 If your rpms are low there seems to be no problem, But when rpms are up ,you know,snowblowing ,cutting the grass' if going from one gear to another quickly when your stoped,fine, But leave it in neutral for a second it grinds when you try to put it in gear,It dosen't seem to have any clutch brake. Am I missing something here or is this just the animal it is??

Sounds like you need to adjust the brake tighter or may need new lining in it. It's on the left side, as seatted, towards the back of the tranny, the clutch linkage also activates it. When all set perfect it will stop the tranny from turning when you step the clutch in. When it's not quite right, then you haveto reach behind you with your right hand and stop the tranny pulley:([V]

Hello, The belt stops are on the BGB pulley side that goes back to the tranny. You also need SIMPLICITY belts. After market belts are not that good for our old iron. My Wards gardenmark squire (simp 725) used to grind all the time until I adjusted the belt guards and got the correct size belts (Thanks to this web site, I got the problem solved). If the stops are not correct then the BGB pulley will still spin and cause the tranny pulley to spin. The tranny pulley should be at a complete stop and then you will not grind. Hope this helps. JH

HI, The retainer bracket on the tightener idler on a varible speed needs to be adjusted so when the clutch is released it "pinches" the belt between it and the idler pulley. This stops the belt from coasting. The rear pulley is so heavey when running wide open it wants to continue spinning due to flywheel action. On my 1969 3212V I fabricated a brake that worked against the inside of the rear pulley when the clutch was pushed in. Did it when the tractor was nearly new and ran it for 9 years commercial that way, worked great. Al Eden

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
