You might have to take the clutches apart and clean them. The one on the engine might have a roller in the center and if it isn't free-wheeling then the belt will not stop. Also you need to make certain that both clutches are opening all the way when the motor is at idle.

I'll look into the clutches and see what I find.

Swapped the receiver hitch and linear actuator so I now have dump function at my finger tips. Also pulled the hood so I can swap the good headlights over to this machine. I'll be using the hood from the other gator on this one along with most of the other plastic body parts. Anyone know how to repair these plastic parts?

Tried the Gator out towing the log splitter. I think this is going to work great around the farm.

At idle wouldn't the driver clutch be fully open idling on the spinning shaft and the driven clutch be fully closed?

I changed oil and filter today so I know where I stand now. Ordered some boots for the steering rack and a new warning light decal which was missing. The hour meter shows 3745.1 hrs. Not sure how long these engine usually go, but it seems to run pretty good so far.

Your right. I really blew it there. You gotta keep an eye on us old guys I guess.

I was just verifying my thought process. Thought maybe the gators worked different.
