variable speed lever

I've heard conflicting answers about moving the speed lever on my Landlord 3210. Should the clutch pedal be in or out?

Also, don't move it unless the engine is running. My B-210 even has a factory decal on the dash warning not to move it unless the engine is running and the clutch is out.... I've linked the adjustment procedure that repeats this same warning, stating it twice on the same page....[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/service/vari-drive_adjustment.htm']http://www.simpletractors.com/service/vari-drive_adjustment.htm[/a]

You shouldn't actually be able to move it with the tractor not running. The lever might move a little but the variable speed drive pulleys won't move as they are suppose to. I had this same question when I recently got my B-210 working. Even with my engine running I couldn't move lever.The problem for me was a frozen "driven slide spacer" on rear (large) pulley. If you don't have a manual for you machine I would recomend them. I think it was money well spent. Good luck, Al

Thanks a lot guys! I just didn't want to break my tractor I also have the factory decal on my 3210 it states "do not move the lever when engine is stopped or de-clutched with caused some confusion on whether that meant the clutch was in or out. thanks for clearing that up for me Adam
