Thanks guys..

I obtained some 85w/140 this morning.  The manual says ep140 or ep 250w gear oil. I put it in the reverser gear.   I sanded the pto drive pulley with sandpaper this am ,it was rusty. Maybe it will be more slippery now.  I am going to think on the belt for a couple of days...Yesterday I saw an inch and a half crack in the generator bracket at the engine( I'll weld it later).  Additionally, the right hub is seized on.   I have Kroiled it and heated the axle with a propane torch briefly. Tapped with a hammer.  Now just sitting with Kroil.

How did you make out? I'm having the same issue with grinding gears and am also missing belt guides. Did that fix it?

Yes

 

The gears were grinding because the tranny was not stopped with the clutch in.  This is because belt guides were missing.  Once I installed a belt guide below the PTO pulley,the grinding stopped.  This is because the trans actually stopped turning when the clutch was depressed. BTW my tractor actually has a wheel horse pto or something. The jacobsen ones have the pto  pullies  that are more than one piece.  The belt guides keep the belt round when slacked.

PS  I made the belt guide out of angle iron

The other guides would be made out of a threaded bolt ground off or something like that.  Good luck!

If you have not already, I would check to see the distance between the WH? pto has the same side to side distance from the side of the engine as the Jake did. If it does not, the belt may drag on the sheave not allowing it to fully disengage when pedal is pushed in. Stiemmy

Stiemmy,

 

I have not tried the PTO with the deck yet.  It has to be welded in a few places around the pulleys.  I will keep that in mine thanks!!
