Well iv tried attaching pics a number of times and i dont believe it worked. A couple months ago i was given a 1980JD 210 & since then i have flushed the rearend, changed plug, fuel and air filters, oil & have greased everything. (i never trust anyones else's idea of maintenance). It runs great, variable speed even works well although it does hesitate at low settings & sometimes doesn't allow tractor to move at all. The cover over the shift knob is missing & looking down i can see a pulley that wobles all over the place & i usually have to wait a couple seconds after pressing clutch in for the pulley to stop then i can put into gear. Can this pulley be tightened? I haven't even looked to be honest & i have owned many garden tractors but this is my 1st JD & iv learned in the past its better to ask others first. Thank you in advance.

First off... Do you know if the variator sheave has ever been lubricated with graphite? Some of the symptoms you mention were similar to those I experienced on my RF 110. I used and alcohol-based spray graphite lube that I picked up a my local NAPA to fix the problem. I sprayed the stuff on the shaft inside the variator assembly and gave it a drive. Noticeable improvement.

Second... Not sure which pulley you are referencing. What is the serial number of your tractor. I would like to help but JDParts.com shows a production change with tractors beginning with serial number 95,001.

Thanks for the new thread! :thumbs:

Item 11 is an idler/tensioner. On the old RF 110 it is not loose. Since the 200 series is the evolution of the RF machines I think it's safe to say it should not move. The easiest way to get to it is to remove the fender pan that the seat is attached to. Once that is gone you can easily get right to everything.


Another option for pics it to consider hosting them on a site like photobucket.com and direct link the file address using the image feature.

Trav1s, we would rather a direct upload. If anything happens to the link, the pics are gone forever.

I have to use tapatalk to post pictures but that is because I use apple products. As far as pulley the guys are right it should not wobble. It can be change from under the tractor, but taking fender pan off makes it easier.

I am using a Mac Mini and don't have any trouble posting pictures. Are you using an older machine/OS?
