Had posted a year and a half ago about belts coming off the ac compressor on my 8700.

matt from Oz said he added a plate to the front of the compressor bracket with a couple bolt holes so he could pull the compressor tight.

Looks like it's going to work well.

Hi Fred

Neat job, like the paint too! It worked well on the old 7700 when I had it, good thing was you can use the nuts to square up the belt on the pulleys. Glad I could help as you guys certainly have helped me over the years.

Regards

Matt

Yeah Matt, when a something gets fabbed up it usually gets some paint on it.

Between that and the toolbox mounted on that side, makes the rest of the tractor look bad though.

The factory shipped those tractors with a single carriage bolt in one of those holes, and the owner's manual showed a claw hammer being used with the bolt to pull it tight. That's how I always did it anyways.

Yeah Bern, but I had to take the compressor off anyway, and this works pretty well. This makes it easier to keep the compressor squared and tight as you tighten the mounting bolts.

Reason I took the compressor off was to replace the bottom mounting bolts with studs (just 3/8 all thread) and nuts as I was loosing refrigerant and oil from one bolt hole when I would loosen the bolts to adjust the compressor belt. Smeared the threads with permatex #2 before assembly, hopefully will take care of it.

Today's Featured Article - Two-Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. Whether for product liability or because the aftermarket parts and labor business is lucrative, this concept is disturbingly prevalent. Fortunately when you step into your shop and make that jump 50 years back in time to work with your old tractor, this concept goes out the window. Even so, when it comes to the charging system, people quickly revert to this idea and start replacing the major components one at a time until it works. The reason you don't find any decals in your replacement set wit ... [Read Article]
