  • Belt Pulley
  • Tried searching the archives. From what I gathered, there were two sizes of pulleys, 8" and 9" (not talking about the spline sizes, which I know had two offerings, 1-1/8" & 1-3/8").
    Is that correct-were there only two models(sizes)offered?
    I picked up a cordwood saw, and it is apparent that the belt pulley I have is too big, as the previous owner cobbed together a stand-off to draw the pulley away from the tractor, using a PTO extension to make it work. If you don't use the stand-off, the pulley strikes the lower lift arms while running.
    I found some data sheets that Ed Gooding provided a long time ago, and for the model saw (22-1) it looks like I need an 8" pulley.
    Can anyone confirm what I really need for a pulley, and the number of different types that were offered? Thank you.

  • My belt I had made from a length I had lying around. I needed to add a segment about 4" long to make the whole thing work. Word of caution: If you have a worklight or taillight on the right fender -remove it otherwise when you lift the saw to transport it will crush it.

  • Brian-
    Either pulley will work. It sounds like there is another problem. You don't need a PTO extension to set up the Cordwood saw. The saw was designed to use the 3-point lift arms but there was no top link connection. the saw should have a 'wishbone' bracket on it which then connects to a special bracket bolted on top of the pulley with a linch pin. Original pulleys were made of hard maple rockwood but later changed to a solid steel unit. Now you may have to do some modifications to the belt depending on which diameter pulley you use. Manual says a 6' belt is standard but I think that is with the smaller pulley. A 9 inch pulley will require a slightly longer belt. Hope this helps...

  • After looking at the display posted Tim, I have to wonder if the group of guys that formed the "Blood, Sweat and Tears" rock band back in the late 60's got that name from viewing a similar photo, or perhaps the real thing!

  • Tim,
    Checking against the original diagrams, the last owner did a number of "farmer-izations". From what I could tell from a distance, it looked like he had a 4000 series, and modified it to fit. He got rid of the wishbone, which I will now have to fabricate. He welded on top a top link connection. and that will have to go.
    I don't have Ed's info in front of me, but I thought I saw the belt was 7'6". I think I will look for a smaller pulley too.
    I love having to fix someone else's jury-rigs, don't you? I don't think I've owned anything I didn't have to undo to restore to original.

  • You don't need a smaller pulley, Brian. the stock pulley works fine as long as the saw setup is stock original too. When I bought my saw, the guy also had it Farmerized to a CASE tractor. It was missing the wishbone bracket and the legs. I borrowed a friends original parts and had another friend of mine make me those parts. He teaches high school metal shop full time and works in a metal fab place part time so it was pretty easy and cheap. Parts books list the belt length at 8' 6". Another way to go is to find another saw that you can get cheap and cobble the parts off of it.

  • Hi Brian. We've got both the owner's manual and dealer parts book for your saw in our Manuals / Implements / Cordwood Saws/Saws library. They should be a good help to you in restoring the saw back to where it will fit your N. If you need to fab any parts, many of us own these and can get you dimensions and other info - just ask.

    Good luck with it.............Ed
