I'm working on my daughters Landord, and it has a hub on the transaxle input shaft, and

I have a lever, and a bracket.

Does anyone have any pictures, or info on this.

There is nothing in the parts book, or manual.

 

Thanks

Thanks MD, but what I have, and am looking for, is much different.

I'll get some pics of what I have.

Sounds like you're talking about a #990348 Two-Speed Pulley.

 

Here's the manual for it:

Looks like I've got everything except the shoulder bolts that hold

the fork, and the pivot/pivot bearings. (part #s AE and AF)

 

No big deal on the shoulder bolts. I can find something for that.

 

Any idea on what material the pivot bearings (AF), would/should be?

Will, you can use delrin or nylon for the pivot bearings. I think most use the delrin. You can also do away with the aluminum pivots and make the pivot bearings to the specs found in this thread:

Thanks for that link.

I think I've got some brass hex mat'l.

I'll get my brother to spin them up in the lathe, and

then I can drill, cut, and file the slots in.

 

For sure, not going to pay $60 in 2004 prices.

 

Thanks

Says I need to logged in.

 

I thought about nylon, but won't heat be an issue?

Here's the specs for the pivot bearings.

I've heard no complaints from anyone that used the nylon, so I don't really know about the heat being an issue.

Thanks for digging that up.

Nylon it'll be.

For what it takes, I'll get him to spin up 4 while he's at it.

That's what brothers are for, right. :D

 

Thanks for all the help guys.
