Variable speed belt adjustments

Recommended Posts

Guest
My owners manual for a 30 year old Simplicity Sovereign shows the spacing between the top belt guard and belt to be 1/8 inch. In my case the belt rubs the upper guard. How is this adjustment made? The only solution I can come up with is shims or is there a way to tighten the belt? Does adjustment of the turn-buckle have anything to do with this adjustment? Any help with the entire belt replacement procedure will be appreciated. Thank you Tom Smith

Go to simple tractors home page and click on service. Then click on vari-drive adjustment. This is the complete procedure for adjusting your vari-drive. You need to do this when you replace the drive belt.
