Hi, I'm missing turnbuckle for my 30 tiller, would like to know length? it is on a 1967 112 round fender, would also live to know main belt length and size if anybody knows, tks it's belt that goes from tiller to tractor.
Bill I just cut a short piece of pipe, and welded a left hand nut on one side and right hand on the other, I left enough hex so I can just adjust it with a wrench, not concerned about looking original right now, total cost so far is $3:88, I will try and post a pic of it on tiller, it is 5/8 course thread btw,
Well I guess my tiller will not be running quite as soon as I planned, got a pto problem, tiller came of my 66h which is currently being restored. I'm installing on my 67 which came with a 46" mowing deck. It looks to me like I gotta use pto/mule drive off 66"
67 2 belt pto drive
66 1 belt pto
I did get turnbuckle installed, seems to work well
Years ago someone on Wfm was having a heck of a time getting everything related to the belts adjusted, they had to move the rearend/hitch to the froward holes. your transaxle is in the rear holes. A normal tiller belt is 5/8" wide, it may work in the 1/2" groves. Here is the 67 112 with the extra tiller pulley
From what I understand you take the nut off the outside pulley on your mule and this pulley threads on. I think it is threaded. I just picked up my tiller as part of a bunch of stuff including a non-running 112H ( left out in rain with no hood and with spark plug out and intake valve is stuck open, plus several other issues) I crawled around in the dirt and through leaves to find that mule drive with the famous pulley. Isn't that 1 pulley mule from a 110?
Question: I found a turnbuckle on ebay but it is 4.75 inches long. Do you think that will be too long? I read the specs were 3.5
Let me know if you need more info on that mule drive, I can see what I can do to get more info.
Edward and Bill thank you so much for info, between picture and your info Bill, I figured out my 66 mule drive pulley comes of and threads right on my 67, maybe I should have known that already, sometimes between long hours at work and kids I miss obvious things.lol, I will post a couple pics when I get new belt, hopefully by weekend, weather looking better.
Bill, as far as length on turnbuckle goes,I'm not sure yet, never tried mine except in garage but I will let you know, I made mine 3.5" I do think 4.75" would be a little long,
