Travis, I have had the same problem on tractors that I have bought. Get the parts book and make sure all of the belt stops are on it. Often people lose them or remove them not knowing what they are for. If you are missing any, they can be made from 3/16 or 1/4 inch diameter rod. Adjust them like the book says and you will be amazed how well it works. You can download a book from this site for your tractor, you just need the mfg. number, but you might need to be a member to do that. You should join, it is the best $10 you will spend, believe me! Good luck! Steve

I have found that it is important to have the clutch belt adjusted correctly and not be to quick to shift the gear. Make sure that the tractor is stopped before kicking out of gear and shifting to the next. I replaced the nylon strip bearing and made a tremendous difference in the smoothness of the clutch and shifting. I have a Big ten and a B 12.
