I dunno, Mike. Tim stated that the engine bogs down when the shuttle is placed in reverse. To me, this sounds like it is either trying to go both directions at once, or that the hub bearing in the drum is sticking or siezed. In either case, the brake band on the drum would have to be tight. Or am I on the wrong track? He also states that it seems to try to go forward when placed in reverse. That leads me to believe that the forward belt is too tight. Any thoughts? Tim, if the drum has play in it, I would assume that the bearings are bad, but I have seen some shuttles with a lot of play in them, that still worked. Pat

I had a chance today to examine a tractor identical to mine. the brake band was loose(unlike mine) and the clutch rod linkage did not have that 1/8 free travel in the spring. i have noticed my drum band is worn to a groove in the center. well, tommorrow i guess its time to tear into her in depth. good thing i'm laid off right now:)

Mine has some slop in it and it used to be noisy in reverse so I just took it apart and filled it with half grease and half 90W oil as full as I could and now it's quiet. I still has a lot of slop but it works fine. It also sounds like the forward belt is not releasing. Lawrence

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
