B-12 Hi-Low

Recommended Posts

Tilling with the B-12 last night and the **#$ thing won't move when it's in the low range, but works fine in hi. When I put it in low in smokes the belt. Is there somekind of a clutch inside there that may be bad? Anyone ever experience a problem like this? Can I get parts for it? Thanks!! John

John, Can't answer your questions but I thought the Operators and Parts Manual might help if you don't already have it. http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/6767PRINT/PDF_files/TP_100_1271_00_AT_S.pdf

Before you remove it, make sure the set screw on the collar that holds the pulley on is tight. If the pulley slips out on the shaft, even a little bit, it will "lock" the high/low rather than shifting into low. It will go into high, just fine, because the linkage is pushing the pulley in against the tranny... Use LockTite or some type of thread locker on the set screw. Been there, done that, got that tee shirt... :D

Thanks for the pic! Had a chance to look at it last night, after swapping a rearend from a early B10 to a landlord 101, looks like it's going to have to come off. Don't want to disable it yet in the garage with all my other projects so I may have to wait awhile. Thanks! John

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      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
