Troy bilt 7hp horse tiller Bar 1034 Adjustment?
Hi. Troy bilt belts appear to big. Engine guide bar p/n: 1034 feel out and was replaced. I have not found an adjustment for these 2 bars.
My horse tiller is now stretching "troy bilt" belts since replacing the right bar pn 1034. The bars have a grove which looks like an adjustment, but each bar is bolted at the top. When a new belt is installed and ajusted, the belt is snug and roller stays in the required area on the ramp. Tiller moves and shifts as usual. When tines are engaged the belt slips and the belt becomes loose. It appeared the tine attachment is causing to much drag. The tines and shaft are clear of trash, the tine input pulley turns easily with the engine drive in neutral and the tines engaged, tInes turn. I checked the engine pulley per the manual. I loosened then tightened the pulley bolt.
I am able to till but I must push down on the clutch lever which raises the engine enough to tighten the belt.
Each belt manufacturer states their belt is for troy bilt. Some of my belts are marked "Troy bilt p/n: 9245". And indicate in the packaging to be 1/2" x 22" v-belt.
Any suggestions are appriciated.
