3012 variable

Recommended Posts

wantedinct
I just picked up a 3012 with a variable. through a new set of points in it and got it running,it runs and drives good. Now here's whats wrong, when starting off from a dead stop, is sounds like the belt is slipping, other then that, the variable seems to work right. I know a lot of guys swapped pullys and did away with the variable set up, but i would like to try to get it working right. Anyone have any suggestions were to start? I was going to start by trying a new drive belt.

I would look up the manual and read how to adjust it and try that first..The belts are $$$$ so I would try adjusting first...never know it might have a new belt on it that they didn't get adjusted right..

Try this for adjusting it also make sure that everything is loose and nothing is binding, the belts are Over $50 if i remember correctly... When they work they work great... [url]http://www.simpletractors.com/service/vari-drive_adjustment.htm[/url]

Eric, I have a very nice running B112 and a broken 3012. Same machines. If you want to see how the B112 works, you can stop by.
