Road trip

Bruce, The B112 repair manual calls it a variable speed pulley drive. I have a B112 that I have an L10 loader mounted on. When I got the tractor it would move on the level with no load but would not go up hill. The variable drive was way out of adjustment. The drive system works very well when adjusted correctly. I also had a 3212 with the variable drive and had to adjust that also to make it go. If you need the manual pages I can FAX them to you or have the manual copied. Tim

I just got back from a road trip that resulted a recollection of seeing another A/C when I used to haul lumber over the Alcan hwy. It was at one of those wide spots in the road called Koidern River Fishing Lodge. I called Jim, and made a loose deal with 14 good used tires that fit nothing of mine, hooked up the pop up trailer to my old '68 Ford, drove 720 miles r/t, paid $25 U.S. at Canadian customs to take those tires in, and came home with a wore out B-112 with no attachements, no hitch, and the bevel gear shot. I am not obsessed! It was an excuse for a road trip! ;o)
It is supposed to run, which I will try to fire it up after morning coffee. But it has those variable drive pulleys, and I was going to search the archives to get the general opinion of 'em, but what are they called?

Thanks Tim, I found my Big Ten manual also covers the B-112, including the variable speed pulleys. Worked on the thing most of the day and never got any fire, even with car coil, except when I manually collapsed the field. New looking, very clean points would not work. Even disconnected condensor and tried it. Grrr! The whole day went that way. It'll probably work fine tomorrow :o/ (trying to remain optimistic)

Bruce, Years ago a freind and I were rebuilding a bug-eyed sprite. When we tried to fire it up, no go. Points were shiney clean but when I put a meter across them they read open. One pass of some emery paper and the engine fired right up. Are the points on the B112 opening and closing. Have you put a meter on the lead from the coil to see if the points open and close the circuit. Good luck in getting it running. Tim

Bruce,

Don't know if your sure it's the points, but we screwed around almost the whole day trying to start the last project and found the spark plug gave up after a grand total of ten minutes of operation.

Now I always check them in times of grrrr.
