I found the Picture of the 800 with me sitting on Dads knee circa 1964,

 

Is the 800 painted gold with a white hood, or is it painted cordovan with a white hood?

I thinkI can get the hub caps re-chromed for better than that.

Spent most of the day yesterday working on the 800.

New Bearings in the front End.

New Tires all around 3 ribs in the front and Ag Lug in the back.

Welded up the clutch forks to take the wear out.

During testing it ate the low range belt. Now to figure out why that happened.

Maybe that is why it never had the low range belt installed.

The quest continues.

What does your drive line look like are the pulleys aligned?

 

All belt guards in place?

That would be an unknown at this point. I have gotten the service manual for it and will be checking that.

Right now I will have to get the belt un jamed from the clutch assembly.

Probably kiss that belt goodbye.

The morning after check out. Pulley alignment is good so it has to be a belt guard issue.

Just from your Video I can tell you the Low range top guards are missing. I can Fabricate a set of those.

Thats the cause of the problem , if the belt is allowed to spin freely without the idler on it it will grab on the sheaves and tear the belt apart.

Another set of belts ordered, I will pull the jammed up mess out tonight and see what I got to fab something to replace those.

Its always something.

Thank You sir for another batch of parts. If the weather cooperates I will be taking care of all those nagging issues this weekend.

The belt guards are usually always missing on these tractors. I have had some success getting new belts adjusted correctly with the top guards and bottom drive guard missing by playing with the driveshaft and pto height adjustments.

I find the bottom pto guard to be the most critical one to have, otherwise pto will always turn a little.
