Step ahead of you. I work at a JD dealer, these are my bosses and he's had them since they were new. The problem we're having is Deere doesn't back these anymore, don't sell any parts for them. All so these CVT systems differ from our gators. No tools nor the clutches interchange. They haven't ran right for the past ten or so years, so my goal is to get these things, or at least one, running flawlessly.
Got the new belt in today, actuall John Deere belt that dates back a long time ago... And it still won't take off and go. If I remove engine drive belt the engine will rap out fine, but the primary clutch kinda pops over a center? then as engine speed increases it'll move in toward the engine.
As soon as the engine drive belt is put on and i start it up, with it sitting on jack stand, the engine wont rap out and the primary sheave won't move like it needs to. If I remove the clutch it moves nice and smooth with some added force.
again yall any ideas are appreciated
