When I removed thr transaxle pully it had 3 shims between the in and out sides of the pully and 3 shims outside the outer side, are the 3 extra shims for a new belt to widen the spacing or? And this is a vari-drive.

Yes, as the belt wears, you remove shims. When you put in a new belt, you put in some shims. I think you leave one out tho, as both the ones I've played with had OEM paint on one, like it was on the outside from the factory.

Yes they are.
There is a post here somewhere by Doug(DH1) that describes very well the adjustment procedure.
I think I know where it is.
