need some help hooking up a tiller. I just bought a 69' model 1-6241 raider 12 and a tiller separate from another seller. I have the tiller mounted, but have trouble with the belt and Pulleys... or lack there of pulleys. 

here is where I'm currently stuck

Your tiller is for a later model using one belt. You can get the idler you need here https://wheelhorsepartsandmore.com/tiller.html

Tillers for that model year utilized a two belt set-up with another idler mounted just in front of the transmission. It used a different axle bracket with the flat idler mounted on it. The newer style just used the idler that Lowell sells and just one belt and the flat idler is on the tiller bracket like yours. I adapted the older style to use the one belt and I see no reason you can't go the other way. I just don't know about the clearance with that type of tach-a-matic mid-mount and the pulley on there. I think you'll be OK. :)

Here's the original for your tractor.

Here's the style of tiller you have.

You can see that it's a straight forward conversion. The belt drive set-up on the newer style is much better than the old 2 belt set-up. :)

      My grandparents bought this tractor new on April 14th, 1987 and cared for it all these years.  
      They added the various attachments that includes a 42" mower deck (48" installed), tiller, cultivator, and Peco vacuum (collection bag included but not pictured). Everything is in good condition, as pictured. There's an entire box full of little accessories, extra belts, etc. Also included are complete maintenance records, receipts, service and parts manuals, and owners manuals. More detailed pictures are available.
      I am travelling from Florida to Northern Indiana on December 18th. For a fee, delivery along I-65 or I-75 might be available.
      I prefer to keep things together but contact me if anything looks interesting or you have questions.

      Hi, hoping someone can help.  I'm over in France trying to tidy up my place before the winter so do not have all the tools I have back at home.  I have a separate problem with the gear box but have posted separately.
      Back in July when l last used the tractor it was loosing power when it got hot, and looking on the internet it appeared that the coil may be the problem.
      i have just returned to France and brought a new coil with me and replaced the old one.  This coil has a separate ballast resistor attached.  The tractor started first go and I started to cut the grass but with gearbox problems.  The grass was long and thick in places and the tractor coped well, just heading the governor apply a bit more power in places.  Them after about half an hour the engine lost power and there were some visible flames commons ftom the exhaust.
      can any one tell me what is happening here.  I assume that it is heat related because the engine started first go and then ran well.  But it must have been fully up to temperature long before this loss of power.  Seeing flames from the exhaust indicates that the fuel is not being burnt in the cylinder, is this an ignition problem? Or are the valve not shutting properly an the fuel is just being pushed straight out of the engine?
      I'm sure it would look quite cool  after dark, but with no power the grass will keep growing.  Hop some one can help.
      Thanks, Andrew

      Hi, hoping someone can help me.  I've just started my 1972 Raider not having touched it since July and it fired up first go, can't complain about that.  However after a few minutes use I stopped to refuel and then could not get it inlto gear.  I found that the main lever 1 2 3 + R (not high / low) was very loose.  It appears that the small bolt that holds the shift lever in place had come undone.  It was only finger tight and when I removed it, it broke into two.  Fortunately nothing went into the gear box, but I dropped the end with the reduced diameter peg that located the shifter.
      As I am away from home in SW France I do not have many spares available, but I do have a nut and bolt of the correct thread but just need to know what diameter the end needs to be turned down to and what length?  Can anybody help?  I have a friend out here with a lathe so that part should be easy.
      I expected to be able to select a gear just by holding the selector in place but could not, is this normal or are there bigger problems?
      Any help would be appreciated, oh and just before coming over to France I bought a black hood Wheel horse on fleebay with no engine, but have a 16hp Kohler in the shed that should fit, just hope it works as I got it for next to nothing and the previous owner said it spat flames from the carb!  A project for the winter.
      Thanks, Andrew
