I did not get from reverse if engine was running or not running. Good point about the belt maybe snow was bending the belt because shifting was not an problem on flat surface only after geting stuck to snow. Before I open the rear axle next time when there is shifting problems I will check that belt is loose not bended or something.

Some updates about this tractor. After some offroad there was some problems changing gears.

Bolt from rear axle snapped inside of the shifter axle. Well instead off taking the rear axle off trying to take the bolt piece out I decided to fix it like this.

This fix worked well so I went to forest. After half an hour just on the turning back area something happened. Tractor didn´t move and problem did look like this.

Tree went over the trailer front tire. Half an hour drive was over two hour drive back. Luckily my oldest son was with me so he was driving and I was pushing. After over two hours we managed to get back to the car. Trailer front tire was not rolling but it didn´matter at that point.

Axle bended and tire went to trash can.

Now this problem is also fixed and we went back to forest. Last weedend we did ger tree loads at the same over two hour time Smile


We can now drive at neighbor field. Combine harvester has collected the oats so tractor had some job to do. It is much saver to drive this thing to field than road car Smile

I have prepared some parts for trailer tire update. At this monent I have so much other thing to do so this trailer update is on hold. Plan is to use 10" scooter rims because those original trailer tires are too small. Well maybe next winter I have some time for this tariler project. Until next time.......

I have some little updates to this tractor but mostly just driving and having fun.

Front axle was quite loose and steering was really heavy. Wheels did not turn because front axle moved so much. So I made new tilting sleeve with lathe and welded it little higher that original tilting point was. After I have matched sleeve and axle dimensions tilting has almost zero play. I made also some other improvements and added grease to the moving parts. Now steering is light and turning agle is good.

Other problem was the belt. Tractor did not move at all. So I took pulley from original deck or something. Anyway that thing where the cutting blades are  Very Happy . I just driller one hole to the ogriginal tensioner and done. Now tractor moves and I can get wheelies with third gear. Here is low quality photo about the pulley issue. So the new pulley is the one wich is on the back side of the belt.

So now it is just hard driving and light maintenance Very Happy

Thanks

This is factory speed only tires are bigger. For me the speed is enough. I mostly like to drive on really rough conditions so slow speed is better.
