3416 and vac collector

Recommended Posts


So, next on my never ending list is setting up the vacuum on the 3416. Here is how I have the mower belt running right now, not sure if its right or not. I thought you would just put another belt on out the back to run the vacuum. Or do I put the vacuum belt on the inner pulley and the deck belt on the outer one? Just trying to get a head start on the dumb questions on this one.....

I put the vacuum on, and strung a belt in there. Not gonna work.


I remember reading somewheres that if you are going to run a snowblower off the mid PTO you have to move a pulley or something.... could that have something to do with this? Because even in the first picture, it works, but thats gotta be hard on the belt to run like that. And when I throw a 5/8" belt on the outer pulley, the belts are rubbing. Whats going on here?

Heres a picture from the side...


Thanks for any ideas.

The pulley you move for the mid pto to snow blower is on the idler assembly that swings in front of the pto and that is on the 7100 series. I will try to get you a picture of my vac and mower belt arrangement after while I know the tensioner on the vac pulls the bottom of the belt up to help clear the axle.

It looks to me that you have a 3400/7000/700 series tractor with the both idlers on the swing arm. The swing arm looks bent to me, the idler puller shown in the picture should be directly underneath the inside pulley on the cone clutch.

And yes the vac collector blower belt goes on the outside pulley of the cone clutch.

      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!😁
