circa 2005 8524 Plate Adjustment

Last season my 15 year old 8524 had a bit of slippage when putting the wheels in gear. Last month I took it out to get it ready for the winter, read up and see that the drive plate needing adjusting, first time since I got it.
I adjusted it in about 2 turns and with the engine running it doesn't move at all but when put into gear it drives but it seems balky, like one side is getting more power than the other. I tried backing the nut out 1 turn and it got better but any more than and it starts slipping again.


Over adjusted in or not enough? Something else?



thanks,

Rob

Is it a model 924xxx ?

If you have your model and serial numbers you can make sure you get the right manual but I'm fairly sure all the 924 transmissions are the same.

Page 8-24 has info on the friction disc.
Service manual for a 924 - - > https://apache.ariens.com/manuals/00040700.pdf

No, it's an 8524. Maybe the info is still good, it's actually on p. 4-16 for adj., I'll check it.



thanks,

Rob

"8524" is the number they put on the dashboard, model number would define the series like if it's a 924 series or a 932 series. Be on a white sticker on the tractor assembly. (example 924551, or 932104)

If it's adjusted to manuals instructions and still funky, it may just be the friction wheel rubber is damaged. Have you pulled the belly pan to look? The manual instructions to adjust are simply to get the rubber disc the correct distance from the drive plate. Is the left wheel differential locked in?
