738 main belt drive

Recommended Posts

I am going crazy trying to get a 738 with tiller going. I replaced the motor and kept the same size top pulley(engine drive). However, when you push the clutch in, the belt will not stop!-- no stop--neither can I put in gear? I did some research last night and seems the belt has a twist in it still that is not going to help me stop the belt. When you push the brake in should the transmission pulley stop? If you can help please give me some ideas. Thanks for a outstanding site--

Paul, I had exactly the same problem after I put my rebuilt 728 back together. The problem on mine was that I had not put the 2 belt guides that are around the motor pulley close enough to the belt. The guides don't look that important but if the are not close enough, the belt bows out when you push on the clutch and it continues to drive the tranny pulley. With the guides adjusted correctly the belt will release from the motor pulley and it will shift just fine. Hope this helps you out!

Thanks I will work with it and try to get back according to the schematic! I do think they are off some. Thanks You would think a Aircraft mechanic could not be whipped by a mower. Not true

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
