Like MH81 said, he may have put 90 weight in there. I would think that could possibly make the belts slip just by putting so much stress on the pump trying to pump it.

Massey 14/16 manual does state a Massey oil specific for the Sundstrand... M1110 But yes, if by some miracle he pumped 80/90 in there, now that would change things!

imageCANZAR6A.jpg I believe this is the stuff we used. I have some more questions

1. Where is the best place to get an oil filter for an onan b43m engine?

2. How do I remove the belts that are connected to the pto shaft and the driveshaft behind the engine?

You can download the service manual here for the belt instructions (2 parts):

I can't remember the oil filter #'s, but will look them up. I either use WIX or Phram oil filters. That oil pictured should not be too thick, but I'd switch back to Dexron III.

Thats your belt tensioner bolt it should have a washer and nut on the end thats showing none in your pic.Here;s a pic of mine from underneath my tractor.Just remeber mine has been relocated to a different spot but it will still show you how the spring and nuts are set up.I relocated my complete tensioner assembly and have mounted it onto the tractor frame rather then mounted onto the rubber mounted motor frame.I did this to stop the drive shaft from walking around and wearing out the splinned yoke and shaft that go into/onto the hydro.By doing this mod the belts do the flexing now rather then the whole drive shaft constantly moving. One thing to add is that my manual says that the spring should be tightened up so that the spring ends up being 1 1/4" long when set properly.Larry

Looking at the pics of the belts, I see 2 issues. One is that they are 2 different make belts. They need to be a matched pair. Belts can vary enough that they fit the pulleys a tad different, or stretch differently. One of these belts is not as tight as the other, & neither appear tight enough. The last pic is the one that appears to show the belts aren't tight, especially the one marked "India".

I fought with wrong belts for a while with my 1855. Spend the money and get the correct belts and tighten them properly. The adjuster is going to push downward on the bottom pulleys. You will want to turn the nut at the bottom of the spring CCW to tighten against the spring and the spring will compress against the motor mounting frame. Once you get this done correctly you will not have to worry about it for a very long time.

Here is a link to partstree.com page for the belts. Snapper part number is 7019550.

Note: Without the top nut and washer to act as a jam nut, the whole thing will loosen off from vibration and you'll be back to square one again.

Tonight after school I changed both the engine and tranny fluid. It moves alot better now, but I still have to work with the belt tensioner and get the new belts. I noticed tonight tho that my rear housing where the 3 point connects has cracked so I will have to get that welded for sure.
