yes when brake/clutch down , brake stops(right side trans). Drive pulley on left side of trans keep spinning.  Also trans gears keep rotating(preventing gear selection without grinding)  Thanks

That's the oil it calls for so you should be fine there.  I can't tell for sure from the photos but it looks like the belt guide that sits behind the PTO pulley may be missing, That might be part of your problem if so.  

 

When you mash the clutch pedal all the way down with the engine running, does it stop the brake drum but the input pulley keeps turning?  Unfortunately mine is all torn apart (a thread will be up on that shortly) so I can't check to see what mine does... 

I checked ,there is a threaded hole in the block behind the pto pulley. You have a good eye.  I could make another belt guide.  I'm not sure if that would stop the trans from turning with the brake/clutch in?? I'll try it Thanks much

I don't know if there is room by the pto?  Maybe the previous owner put a bigger pulley on then removed the belt guide.  It looks to be very close

It's a very tight fit, yours may still even be in there.
This is a view from the front, you can just barely see the drive belt behind the guard...

View from the back, I pulled the PTO belt off so you can see where the guard ends on the bottom...You can just barely make it out below the drive belt.

I'd double check the belt length and also how much slack you have when the clutch is pressed. Superaben gave me a great point earlier that if there's a groove or wear in the pulleys it will hold onto the belt even with no tension. Tommy Williamson has a chief 1200 that he's parting out, you could see if he has a guard that he'll sell?

I accidentally put 90w oil in the  reversing box,I have to go get some ep 250w oil before I test again.  I will measure the belt too,maybe it is too short?  THX

My reversing box had nothing but some brown sludge in it when it came apart and I hadn't looked up the fluid spec for it yet...guess that explains it lol, it's asphalt!

Best wait to find someone who knows, but if it needs to be that thick, maybe grease? IDK

I did some quick looking and supposedly Redline Shockproof Heavy gear oil has a 250 weight rating. 250 is still available but seems to be mostly industrial applications thus you'd be buying 5 gallons of it at a minimum.
