I'm having some issues with my variator/clutch mechanism... I have installed a new primary and secondary drive belt as well as a new variator spring. When I adjust per the service manual, it comes in contact with my PTO mechanism when the clutch is engaged. It also only seems to make a difference in about two positions. I do know the middle sheave moves as I could move it when I changed the belts. Maybe I need to lube it with graphite or something? Looking for any advice or pointers!

Well after playing with it some more i think I got it nailed down. Just had to play with the mechanism some more and a touch of filing. Seems to be working now. I've been all over this tractor lately. Seems to be mechanically fine. Needs one more idler pulley and maybe a brake band. I'll get them in the coming weeks.
