fit -up between Big Ten and Simplicity vac setup

Should be the same (belt on LH side). Only the early blowers had the belt on the right side. You'll probably need the blower with the clutch, but the 2110 should already have that.

Does anyone know if a leaf vac rig currently attached to a Simplicity 2110 will hook up directly to an Allis B-10 or B-12? Specifically, will the PTO drive belt be the same hookup? What pulley(s) will I need on our B-series and where do they attach? Am guessing LH side? Thanks! Tom

It will fit right on, but getting your tractor configured to drive it will be where a challenge may arise... It could drive from either side. If it drives from the left side, you need the 3" pulley on the bevel gear box outide the one that drives the center PTO. You'll also need a rear PTO (often called tiller drive). These can be hard to find. This will require 3 belts, total. One long one from the BGB pulley to the large pulley on the rear PTO. It has an engagement lever and idler pulley to control tension on it. A short one goes from the small pulley on the rear PTO to a jackshaft pulley on the vac. It has a spring loaded idler to keep tension on it. The 3rd belt runs from a pulley on the opposite end of that jackshaft up to the impeller. This one has the engagement lever and clutch pulley on it to control tension. If it drives off the right side, you'll need only a larger (4.5 inch, I think) pulley that mounts on the bevel gear box outside the one that drives the transmission. (It replaces the "tin" pulley that has provisions for a pull starter rope.) The belt goes direcly from the bevel gear box pulley to the vac, with a spring loaded idler to keep tension on it. There's a second belt that runs up to the impeller, with a clutch lever and idler on it to control tension. It'll fit up through B-110s with their 3-speeds, regardless of which side drives it. B-112s, 212s and later require the vac to drive from the left side, since there's no way to mount a right drive pulley to their variable speed (or hydro) setup. Some vacs, like mine, had provisions to drive it from either side....

See the link to a different thread to see the bevel gear box drive pulley for driving it off the right side, and to see the idler pulley and bracket for the vac that allows you to do so....[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/clubhouse/ShowMessage.asp?MsgID=5266&mode=short&startwith=0']http://www.simpletractors.com/clubhouse/ShowMessage.asp?MsgID=5266&mode=short&startwith=0[/a]

See the link below to another thread that shows how the rear PTO/tiller drive can be used to drive the vac off the left side of the bevel gear box....[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/clubhouse/ShowMessage.asp?MsgID=5261&mode=short&startwith=0']http://www.simpletractors.com/clubhouse/ShowMessage.asp?MsgID=5261&mode=short&startwith=0[/a]
