Well I'm baffled

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately that don't take much.. :Q Anyway here's my 6216 story. I get a 6216V from a guy about 3 weeks ago who says trannys not working right. He says you put it in reverse and it goes into 3rd, 1st goes into R, 2nd into R and 3rd goes into R. I get it home and find the primary drive belt chewed up, busted and tangled with secondary belt and the variator's center wall seized in place. I free up the pulley, clean and lube, replace the belt with a 1/2"X 54" true blue belt I purchased locally. I adjusted the clutch, variable speed and brakes per specs. When I ran it, it shifted into each gear properly in it's correct position. It ran way too fast though and the variable speed instantly seemed to lose adjustment or quit working. I find out that I should have a 5/8"X 54". I check locally and he don't have either a true blue or Simplicity belt that size and persuades me to try a "power rated" belt. Well that didn't work :O i don't think I ever went thru the gears... it instantly started sqealing and barking at me...:D Out goes the power rated belt. I end up ordering the correct Simplicity belt online and just got it today. So I put it on, make all the adjustments and take off (with no noice) except.... Reverse goes into 3rd.... 1st goes into reverse, 2nd goes into R... etc...:( Anyone experience anything like this? Have any ideas? This seems like it would be something easy, doesn't it? It definitely went into the correct gears with the 1/2" belt. I'm baffled.

I second that. Happens to me with the B-series mower decks all the time, blades run backwards due to wrong twist.

It is all in the twist of the belt from horizontal to vertical. The belt from the right side of the motor drive pulley goes to the top of the transmission drive pulley. Off from the bottom of the transmission pulley to the left side of the motor drive pulley.

Ok, It's 9:20pm, 53 degrees out and after reading this post, I still want to go out to "the back 40" with a flashlight, uncover the T811 and see if the belt is twisted the wrong way.:O Is this a sickness?:o) PS - I hope that's it. Thanks guys!

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
