  3. Solved run away tractor problem

    Thanks for all your help you guys are highly appreciated. We get a break on the rain until noon. So I will go out and pull a blade and get some pictures. I would like some help identify the spindle also. I think they are K type. What actual 42" deck was supplied with the 1989 312-8? Also the C-120 1975 42" deck which I think I have. What is the best place to buy parts for the above deck and tractor?

    Thanks for the great manual. Thanks for the blade info I hit a tarp last year and sucked it in the blade might be bent. Can I still purchase the double d blade anymore?
  5. Solved run away tractor problem

    Thanks so much for the great nanual. I think I have spindle with a d shape not two holes on each side. I will pull the blades and try to get the part number of the spindle. I think that the gym I bought it from built he deck for me from spare parts. He had a fresh bead of red silicon around the base of each spindle. We have a few days of rain when it stops I will get some pictures. Should all three blades be all mounted pointing in the same direction? Thanks

  7. Hi all Happy Spring Last year I posted about my tractor running off with me 40% of the time that I would go down my very steep hill in the back yard. Yesterday I changed my drive belt and found out that the 82" belt was a 1/2" wide instead of 5/8" and it had cracks in the side every 1/8" I'm sure that this was the problem. While removing the old belt I found a L shaped bracket above he pto with a break pad see below. I have a 89 312-8 can I buy one of these and what is it called? I have a new brake lining to install also what adhesive should I use? Thanks

    No I will be going down the bank in 2nd gear low range and all of the sudden it will brake loose and just run off with me. It use to be only once in a while now every time. I have to do a brake job on wife car today so Monday I will look at the belt.

    That was a great post I needed that. I will just remove the old belt and lay it over the new one and take a picture for you. I will use some Emory cloth and get some spirits. You guys really know your stuff. I was on Craig's list looking for a cheap horse so I could swap the drive. Thanks so much. Can I post a picture

    Ok I just mowed a few days ago it was really scary running down a 45 degree bank with the brake smashed and still rolling toward the chicken house. If the belt is okay can I clean the belt and pulleys while still on the machine? After cleaning would the fan belt spray help. Thank how do you put a new belt on without adjustment

    Man is that a good idea thanks so much. I thought I had a bad tranny. I drained the tan colored fluid out this spring and installed a new boot. Can that drive belt be adjusted somewhere? I have a spare
