Recently mowing lawn treactor won't go into any gear. Not sure if there are belt tensioner or if needing new belt. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  P.S. I don't have owners manual so I'm not even sure how to adjust or change belt.  Thanks Jeff

:WRS:     If you will tell us the year and model number we can fix you up with a free download for an owner manual. When you say it won't go in gear please be a bit more specific. Is this a problem that just occurred or one that has gotten worse? Will it seem to go into gear while stationary with the engine shut off, but grind gears when running? We need a bit more to go on here.

Sounds like he is saying "won't GO in any gear".  Like it won't "move" in any gear.  My thoughts are first check the axle hubs and the input pulley.

don't have owners manual

Glad you found the problem. If you go to the "Manuals" tab at the top of the page and search for your year and model you can download one for free.

I went to a show a few years back at the fair grounds in Charlotte MI. I didn't have much time to spend there but recall there being 6 or 8 guys there with WH but mostly farm tractors.

      Cannot find info on proper drive belt size for my 48" mowing deck.
       
      I have what I believe is a 1990 416-H (41-160E01)  with a 48" deck (xx-48SC02).  All parts guidance on the various web pages recommend a 1/2"x103" belt for both 42" and 48" decks.  However, this size is too long when I tried to replace.
       
      So rather than go trial and error with buying several belts and seeing what gets me lucky, I thought I'd first post a note here.  Thanks for any constructive assistance.

      Hey guys, I'm new to the forum (very thankful to have found it) and a fairly new Wheel Horse owner. I believe my tractor is an early 1960's E32 Lawn Ranger. I haven't been able to pin point the age or exact model yet. Here is the problem I am currently having. My barn find did not have an engine so I used a predator 212cc as a replacement. I have found a pretty good pulley for the engine, but seem to be having trouble finding the best length to utilize the clutch/brake function. I have moved the engine back a bit to allow clearance for the hood. I have two 1/2" v-belts that I am trying to work with, one is a 61" and the other is a 62".

      I have also read and recently learned that the belt cover must be on to make sure the belt doesn't spin off. However, I can't seem to get the rear transmission pulley to stop spinning when I engage the clutch pedal. The belt definitely seems loose enough when using the 62" since it will literally fall off when I engage the pedal all the way. It even seems a bit loose when only pressing half way down. Anyway, I have posted a few pics to show what I am talking about. Any help on proper belt tension would be greatly appreciated. Glad to be here!

      Hi all,
       
      Just a little bit of information regarding replacement drive belts for the 227-5 in the UK if you are not buying OEM that might help someone in the future.
       
      The part number listed is 108427, which specs out as:
      Top width: 13mm Depth: 8mm Outside Length: 2235mm = 87.99"  
      Sadly, a number of the first sites I found didn't specify that the 88" is the outside measurement so I having trusted their information and with the old belt still installed I just ordered A88s.  
       
      Anyway, as I'm sure you all know, belts are sold based on the internal measurement therefore you would require A86! 
       
      Actually now having spent some more time digging for information about the belt I have found sites specifying 88 as the outer diameter. including http://outdoorpowerinfo.com/, which seems like a pretty handy website.
       
      Regards

      Hi All, (what's the proper term for Wheel Horse aficionados?  Wheelies?  Horsers?  Whiskey Hotels?),
       
      Just became proud owner of a 1970 Charger 12 Auto with tiller and hydraulic loader.  We've decided to call it Samwise because it's small but mighty and (we hope) dependable.

      I'm still figuring things out and have one issue:  the parking brake lever keeps popping up on its own.  That doesn't stop the tractor, so I assume the pawl has been ground down / busted.  And, the transmission continues to get power with the lever up, which makes me think someone has installed a drive belt that is too short.  Does that seem likely?  What is the proper size belt?
       
      Thanks!  I'm sure I'll have many more questions.  I've already learned a ton perusing the archives.

      I have recently acquired a Wheel horse C-161 Automatic Hydrostatic, and I noticed what seems to be the drive belt is missing some chunks so I am wondering what is the proper belt to fit it, and if it is indeed the drive belt, It runs from where the shaft comes out on the side to the rear of the tractor,
