'47 WC Belt Pulley ??

Report to Moderator

I have been tasked by an elderly widow lady down the road of disposing of her late husband"s cherished "47 WC. I plan to insert it in an upcoming farm implement auction on March 15th. He had rebuilt it just prior to his death but it has been sitting in covered storage since "02. Needless to say it was stuck...but patience and a secret soaking brew has broken it loose and it runs like a champ !! Now the question....How do you activate the flat belt pulley? In addition to the four speed gear shift there are two additional shift levers directly below and forward of the seat. One engages the PTO shaft and the other, apparently, disengages the main shaft to allow for stationary PTO work. Somebody..PLEASE...how is the brlt pully engaged?!?!?!?!? ANY help is appreciated !!

Ed, I wouldn't recommend having that pulley run unless you are using it. If that pulley is engaged, You must have the tractor and pulley stopped to shift it into any gear. If it is in the disengaged position, shifting is much easier and with a little luck you can go through some the gears without stopping or even slowing down. And a WC does have two levers. One is a lever that can interupt the drive to the rear wheels. The other is for engaging the PTO, though this one is more of a pull button.

First off you may not have a WC, based on your description of the two levers. On a WC, you have to loosen the nut behind the pulley and slide the pulley in and possibly twist the shaft to align the correct hole for the retaining bolt.

Not all RC or WC tractors had the two levers. PTO was optional, not standard equipment on early ones, and the traction disconnect on the torque tube was not available through all production years. So some could have nothing, some one, some two levers, to control those functions. WF did not have the traction disconnect, (the steering sector mounts there) but had pto available. WD and WD45 had the pto and hand clutch, so had live power without the RC/WC style disconnect.

Safe way? Make sure the engine is off. Above the pulley is a setscrew with locking bolt. Loosen that. Push the pulley assembly in until it makes contact with the driving gear.(That is why you want the engine off, or the clutch locked down, so that gear is not turning). Tighten down the setscrew and locknut. If you pull the pulley out far enough, you"ll see a ring of holes that the setscrew engages when you push the pulley into driving position. Those holes are drilled in a staggered pattern, so you can set the "backlash" of the gears. Normally one is marked with a pumchmark by the dealer, and the face of the pulley will have about 1/8 to 1/4 inch backlash at that hole. Should also be s slash mark on top of the "C" channel to line up with. Belt pulleys on RC, WC, WF, WD, WD45 engage the same way. If you have two levers by the seat, the one connected to the torque tube is a sliding disconnect for the drive axle. Lets you raise amounted cultivator or lister (which needs tranny power) without forward tractor motion. Handy when stuck or up against a post, etc.
