Belt Alignment Quetions

Recommended Posts




I have attached a picture of what I think is  a problem on a tractor I have. Seems that the larger idler is bent out of position inward, not real sure. I know that I can't run a rear pto at the same time due to the belts rubbing because of this. Tractor is 3416 H.


Ideas are welcome.

I believe that is normal, They are angled toward the other pulley slightly, I had a 1968 landlord for 18 years that was like that.

Never had any issues with it and I used a tiller on the rear pto. it is a strange setup thoe.

Hey Docs;


So in reading the book on the (rear PTO driven) revitalizer, they recommend using the mower deck simultanously . So, after checking them the two  belts  rub for sure. Will it hurt to toe that sheave inboard 6 degrees or so?

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
