Okay, I am new on here so i am just figuring things out. So i bought a 1968 Ford 120 lawn tractor and my plan is to fix it up and make it a basic "stock" pulling lawn tractor. So after a week of having it i got it running and it keeps throwing the drive belt off of the transmission input pulley, i put a new belt on and it would do the same thing, but upon further inspection of the input pulley i saw that it was cracked where the bolt goes in and it kept throwing the bolt out. First off, does anybody know where i can get one of these pulleys made or where i can get a new one?
Next big problem was when i drained the rear end, it was straight clear water that drained out the back, no gear oil at all and i can't put any oil in because the hole you put the oil in is rusted shut. Any suggestions on what to do there? I'm thinking i will probably just split the rear end and take it apart and soak all the parts in rust remover, only problem with that is, i do not think i will be able to get it put back together right. I am open to any and all suggestions y'all might have. THANKS
