Subject: RE: John deere gator shredding belts

NE part of SW Iowa

I know nothing about gators, BUT if the clutch design is similar to a snowmobile, then I suggest you check/measure the "center to center" measurement between the Primary clutch and Secondary Clutch. (= too close)

May need to check the offset of the pulleys, and their alignment (squareness to each other), too. {Note: I bought the correct tools, to do this, when I own snowmobiles} My buddy raced smaller snowmobiles. [ I bought and read a book, on Clutch designs, also; to get a better understanding]

Years ago, with small 2 cylinder engines, in snowmobiles; You knew you had a problem, when "center to center" measurement was wrong(especially when too close) = You had "Low Power", to try an get the snowmobile moving, from a dead start.

Now, look at these recent engine, with more Torque, and it may not be so obvious to everyone that they might have an issue, but the newer bigger engines kinda "cover up" some of the issues, until it gets really bad.
