B-12

Recommended Posts

Got the front lift shaft back in my B-12 today. Only one problem with the repairs. I replaced one of the fiber disc in the drive shaft and forgot to put the hydro lift belt on before I put the drive shaft back in. I blamed my brother for that mistake, because I knew I wouldn't do something that dumb. All done and running again, so now I can use my snow blade, except now the snow has all melted. O well, next year.

I'll see what I can do. I'm not sure I'm computer literate enough to do the picture thing. I can tear a tractor down completely and put it back together without a manual, but I don't know about pictures on a forum.

I had three choices: 1. cut the belt(staple it back together), 2.cut the drive shaft(weld it back together), 3.remove and replace the drive shaft after putting belt on. Hard decision. Maybe 4 choices, could remove engine.

How about pulling the bolts holding the shaft to the engine and sliding the hydro pulley out? I have not put an engine in one of these tractors YET, that I remembered to put the s/g belt on before bolting the driveshaft up!dz DO NOT feel alone!:D

The end that goes to the engine, with the hydro pulley and spacers, is harder to line up than the end toward the bgb. I had everything off the tractor, the dash,gas tank,etc, so that end was easier, or at least i thought so. The shaft, from an old shuttle tractor, was of a larger diameter than the original B-12 shaft.
