I NEED HELP

Recommended Posts

Homesteader
I know it isnt the right brand but i need help on my Ford 120. I finally got around to fixing the rear end in it and now there is another problem. When i push the clutch in, the belt slackens like it should, but does not completely disengage. Therefore, I cannot shift out of neutral unless the engine is off. I was hoping someone has any ideas as to what it could be. This tractors is the same as a Jacobsen Super Chief 1200. Thanks

Aaron, there has to be something that will stop belt motion, like a guide on the idler that will pinch the belt when disengaged, I believe.

You got me thinkin Bob...I have two that have begun giving me this issue, and I'm glad you mentioned the belt guides. I'll look over a manual before I get to the head scratching part of things! dOd

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
