1054 drive belt problem solved... I think

Recommended Posts

Wasn't sure where to post this, but I think I figured out the problem with the drive belt squealing.  The clutch spring 1129 which from what I can see, also puts tension on the drive belt idler pulley number 36 in parts drawing.

Apparently the gentleman who had the tractor before broke off part of the hook on the clutch spring and added a smaller spring for the hook. As a result it doesn't have the correct strength.

  Does anyone have any specifics on the spring size and length or where I can purchase one. 

 

  Thank you!! in advance

Repair Clinic shows it being listed as also fitting a snow blower. Maybe that will broaden the audience and someone can chime in

If you have an Ace Hardware/Crowder Brothers near you they have a huge assortment of springs. I'm sure you could find one in there nearly identical to the original if someone replies with spring specs.

 

Just FYI - mine has also been replaced with a small spring and a coat hanger attached to it goes the rest of the distance

See if this link will work to some applications

ST-323 snowthrower and a couple of B-Series 3-speed models used the 1129 spring which replaced 100228.

 

The front spring on the RMR-3261 mower deck suspension was 1129

Tig, I will go to the barn tomarow and measure the spring wire size, spring OD and length and post it. I found some at a flea market a few years back with slightly smaller wire and a bit shorter which has been working well.

The old spring I have has an outside diameter of 0.75" and is made of 0.10" steel with 40 coils measuring 4.35" for the coiled area.

Hope this helps.

I'll see what I can scrounge up in the way of a spring.

I have a broken spring on my 312. I just bent the last coil out and made a short loop of heavy wire attached to the rear mounting point to make the length. It's been on their for a couple of years and I haven't noticed any difference in operation. They usually brake off on the attachment loop.

I've been looking into this as I have a 1054 that I want to put back together this spring. (If my health holds out) 

I have a box of parts and I do remember some Springs in there. But this is what I found so far.

:text-yeahthat: Bob, that looks like a good match, too bad it is Stainless Steel, that drives the price up.

I found a two pack of springs at Tractor Supply that could be hook end to end and would get the job done for $ 3.99

Extension Spring, 3/4 in. x 2-5/8 in. x .105 in. , Pack of two

@953 nut Richard I also see it in music wire ?????????? I guess it plays a tune when you apply pressure on foot pedal. 

For $16.107. I can't figure out how to pay .107 in change. Still to expensive for me. But maybe  it could work. You have a good idea in the 2 spring setup also.

:ROTF:     Can you name that tune?     

                           Image result for name that tune

Found a couple of good contenders on the website you have been looking at. Very reasonably priced too.

  I really appreciate all of your input guys and links and suggestions for spring replacements. :handgestures-thumbupright:

  Was going to mention that as 953 suggested, I ordered and should have a new idler pulley here today. I believe it seized up the the other day when I tried to move the tractor.  Should have the 1054 back on line for snow plowing duty today!! :greetings-clappingyellow:.   Love that tractor.  :)
