B-10 grass vacuum system

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm a new member and a new owner of a B-10 that I bought last month. I plan on restoring it this fall so I can proudly add it to my collection which consist of a 1964 110 JD, a 1966 102 CC, a 1967 857 WH and a 1989 4016 Ingersol. Even though they are all restored (and modified), I still use them almost everyday. I guess you could call me a farmer want-a-be. Anyway, on to my question. Yesterday I bought a tractor powered grass vacuum blower for my B-10. Does anyone have information and possibly pictures of how the blower and clutch is mounted and driven. There were 2 different units to choose from; one was driven from the rightside of the RGB and the outer had a jackshaft and was driven from the leftside of the RGB. I chose the latter. It looks like I could remove the jackshaft and drive this unit from the rightside of the RGB just to simplify things. Thanks in advance for your help, Ron

Thanks Mack. That really helps! Pictures are truly worth a 1,000 words. One final Question. The pulley was missing that goes on the RGB. I assume the blower is driven at a 1:1 ratio to the engine. Is that right? Thanks, Ron
