  • Starting a 9n using a flat belt pulley
  • Someone had ask how I started a tractor using a flat belt pulley. With the help of my wife I posted my first youtube video. Don't laugh It's my first attempt at this.

  • And I'll bet you seen that old 9n too. that's your old tractor. The road ending farm tractor. Should get the new starter drive in a couple of days. The flywheel on it is a little worn but still might get a year or two out of it.

  • The method shown works IF the belt pulleys are on opposite sides of the PTO to get the correct rotation for the engine. If both pulleys were on the same side, a half twist in the belt would be required.

  • Towards the end of the video I mentioned the rotation. Even my wife said I should have been a little clearer on this point and should have mentioned the belt twist. This was my first try at something like this. I couldn't do a second take cause it started to rain and snow shortly after it was made.
    I will see if I could add the twist to description as I also think it's a good point to make.

  • Another thing that your video shows is why we need over run clutches for brush mowers and other pto driven equipment. If you have ever/never mowed without one be prepared for a surprise push from behind.

  • Re: Starting a 9n using a flat belt pulley
  • Tried and true method. Dad and several neighbors used that method on several different tractors back in 1950's. 6 volt days, on cold winter mornings they would try to start their tractors and when one got his going he would call around to see if anyone needed help. That is one method they would use

  • Re: Starting a 9n using a flat belt pulley
  • I enjoyed this video, thanks for posting it Kirk. It reminded me of Daddy and his Ford pull type combine. The combine had a Wisconsin V4D engine that that 95% of the time wouldn't start. It was a hand crank engine. It frustrated Daddy so much one day, that he and a Mr.Singelton, removed the flat belt in which the engine provided power to the combine mill and ran a long belt to a Farmall H tractor. Daddy throttled the H up, released the clutch, and spun the Wisconsin at such speed it couldn't refuse to start. It indeed started, but had to be shut off to remove the long belt and replace the drive belt. Daddy's thinking was that the engine being warmed up would restart with the hand crank. It did not. Daddy had enough of it. He drew back with crank in hand throwing it at the engine, successfully hitting it hard,and modifying the rotating air screen covering the engine's flywheel. I was very young at that time when witnessing this and learned some new words from Daddy, but later when I began to practice their use, Mama intervened. Ahh the memories ! SoS

  • Great job on the video.
    Didn't realize that was another possibility for starting an engine. Thanks for posting. I am going to save this one.
