No you guys were right, the gas in the oil was exactly it
And yeah, I was ticked at that thing yesterday, almost quit pruning trees (the truck was taking a stand-in for the 210-5) to go shop for an ATV...

So bit of an update, over the past couple of weeks I made some belt guards for it (i will shoot some pics later) which made it far more reliable, however now it won't go 2 feet without dumping the belt because the belt likes to flip upside down on the front pulley, ripping it off the back one.
Does anyone have any idea why the belt would be flipping like that? I'm pretty sure it's that it's super worn on one edge so i'm going to get a new belt but possibly someone else might now?

That is odd but unless you have a damaged pulley or your clutch/idler is bent or out of alignment it sounds like you already have it figured out! How does it look off of the machine laying on the ground, does it lay flat or does it twist/curl on it's own? You could flip the whole belt over to see what happens, if it stops flipping/jumping the belt off the way it was going that would indicate the belt is the issue. If the belt keeps flipping the same way then something in the driveline is probably the issue. It is odd that the belt would wear more on one side that the other though, keep that in mind...

It lays flat, and I already flipped it completely and it still does the same thing...

Good process of elimination! Lol. If the new belt does the same thing then you know what to look for, I'd be watching the new belt very closely for any sort of odd deflections or you may find yourself in the same predicament once the new belt starts to wear. Belts aren't cheap these days so if I were you I'd buy a cheapie at Princess Auto to start off with then upgrade to a better belt and keep the cheapie as a spare, that's how I approach things anyhow.

Unfortunately the closest cesspool auto is about an hour away, and the "cheapie" belts at the local parts store are now about $35 for the 86" that I need Sad

Cesspool auto?! Not sure why you would knock one of the greatest stores available to us but to each their own I guess!

Well, I finally fixed the belt issue, ran it for the past week and only lost the belt once (engine braking with a 500 lbs trailer down a hill, I slipped it from 5th to 3rd (instead of 4th) by accident, the trans was screaming so loud I though I blew the trans when the belt came off.) But, however, I went to go for a rip this morning, it started up fine, I threw it in reverse, let the clutch out and... nothing, it was like it was in neutralis in all the gears, decided to look at the pulley to see if the key had sheared off, I pulled the pulley off (of course the set screws came loose) and I gave the input shaft a little wiggle and it came right out, I think there's supposed to be a gear there, and there's not, so either the gear fell off or it's shattered to pieces.
Anyway, not really sure where to go from here, I guess it isn't for sale anymore, I'm thinking I might as well swap a 6spd from the UTV's future base but I'm not sure about this one yet.

And by the way, if there's any Canadians who want a free tractor, I know a guy who has a yardworks in Dutton, I would go pick it up but it's a little too far for me, shoot me a PM if you're interested, this will only be availble april 2022, please no messages about this after then, I won't be there.

Started on the trans rebuild saturday night, got the whole thing put back together and then realized there was a crack in the bottom, one tap with a hammer and it was a large hole, no worries though, I have the 6spd out of the future UTV (well, possibly) and I pulled that out last night and today, got her swapped in, just working out some shifter stuff and I should be able to take it for a rip if the rain lets up...

Alrighty boys, the WH is back in action, got the trans all hooked up, and she has her wheelie-popping abilities back for some reason, the old trans stopped being able to pop wheelies near the end but now she pop 5"
