SIMPLICITY 5-SPEED TRACTORS
The complete tractor is shipped in a crate with handles and clutch lever
assemblies packed separately in a carton. Tools and draw bar pin for attaching
drawn implements are in a bag secured to the tractor crate.
1. Bolt handles to the outside of tractor frame with frame extension (1) on
inside as shown. Handle bolts (2) are shipped inserted in the frame.
Adjustments at (A) and (B) must be made after tractor is assembled- both are
very important. Adjustment at (A) controls the tension of the drive belt.
Adjustment at (B) controls the amount of slack in drive belt for idling.
With engine shut off--belt on pulleys for 1st speed and clutch lever (9) in its forward position - adjust adjustment screw (A) to leave a slight flex in the belt when transmission is pulled back by hand.
BELT SLACK FOR IDLING
With clutch lever (9) in its rear position- Adjust (B) to obtain sufficient slack for idling. To obtain more slack shorten rod (3) at (B).
Tractor clutch is ENGAGED when clutch lever is FORWARD, but belt does not remain tight when engine is NOT RUNNING. Under no circumstances should lever action be reversed.
The tractor, but not the engine (see engine instruction book), is fully greased and ready to use when received. There are three high pressure grease fittings on the tractor: one on the pulley shaft housing, one on the main axle housing, and one on the gear case. Grease the pulley shaft every 5 to 6 hours of use. Grease the~, main axle every 12 to 15 hours of use. Add a few shots of grease to the gear case every 40 to 50 hours of use. A grease gun is supplied with the tractor. Use a general purpose semi-solid grease.
