If your friction material is still making contact with the sheave its still good, there is linkage adjustment that can be made as well.

Noise as long as its not metal on metal is normal on these machines

Welcome to GTT. You can search our Manuals Section and threads for the info. Post some pics so that we can see the situation. I have some tractors that need some new friction surfaces. There are ways to make them out of cheap materials but they don't last long. Good Luck, Rick

They wear on the sides, if both 45* angles are still contacting the engine sheave when reverse is engaged its fine

I'm not sure how the later ride-a-matic sprockets are set up all mine are early models, if you have two sprockets to choose from you should just be able to unlink the chain and reattach it
