Pay strict attention to the “Lubrication” and “Maintenance” sections of this manual. The directions ‘Left & Right’ and ‘Upper & Lower’ referred to in the following instructions are determined by standing behind the Tractor and looking forward. ‘Inside’ refers to the side of a part which is closest to an imaginary center line running down the length of the “Tractor”. ‘Outside’ refers to the side farthest from the above defined center line, The warranty on this tractor is included with your copy of the purchase order which you should have received from your dealer when you pur- chased the tractor. Fill out the “Warranty Card” included and mail promptly to us to properly reg- ister your Tractor! Ad This safety alert symbol identities important safety messages in this manual. When you see this symbol, be alert to the possibility of personal in- jury and carefully read the message that follows. When in need of parts or major service, see your Magnatrac dealer. Record the tractor and engine serial numbers in the space provided on the cover of this manual. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS Improper use of the tractor and its equipment can result in injury. To reduce this possibility give complete and undivided attention to the job at hand, and follow these safety precautions. ‘A CAUTION: This equipment is designed for mature persons. Young people should not operate the equipment without proper instruction and con- stant supervision. PREPARATION Know your controls. Read this operator’s man- ual and the manuals provided with your equip- ment. Learn how to stop the tractor, engine, and equipment quickly in an emergency. Do not allow children to operate machine; nor adults to operate it without proper instructions. Keep children and pets a safe distance away. Never permit any person other than the operator to ride or board the tractor at any time. Clear work area of objects which might be picked up and thrown. Do not use tractor for mowing unless the mower discharge chute guard is in place. OPERATION Disengage all attachment clutches and shift into neutral before attempting to start engine. Start the engine carefully. Keep feet and hands well away from the blades. Always wear relatively tight and belted clothing when operating tractor. Loose jackets, shirts, sleeves or other loose clothing should not be worn because of the danger of catching them in moving parts or controls. Read and observe all “CAUTION” and “WARN- ING” decals appearing on tractor and equipment. Never direct discharge of any material toward bystanders nor allow anyone near machine while it is in operation. Do not stop or start suddenly when going uphill or downhill. Mow up and down the face of steep slopes; never across the face. Reduce speed on slopes and in sharp turns to prevent tipping or loss of control. Exercise extreme caution when changing direction on slopes. Stay alert for holes in terrain and other hidden hazards. Always drive slowly over rough ground. Stop and inspect tractor and attachments for damage after striking a foreign object. Repair damage before restarting and operating the equip- ment. Use care when pulling loads or using heavy equipment. Use only approved drawbar hitch points. Limit loads to those you can safely control. Do not turn sharply. Use care when backing. Use counterweight(s) when suggested in owner’s man- ual. Watch out for traffic when crossing or working near roadways. Disengage power to attachments and stop engine (1) before leaving operator position, (2) before making any repairs or adjustments, or (3) when transporting or not in use. Take all possible precautions when leaving trac- tor unattended; such as disengaging power-take-off, lowering attachments, shifting into neutral, setting parking brake, stopping engine and removing key. MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE Handle gasoline with care——it is highly flam- mable, Use approved gasoline container. Never re- move cap or add gasoline to a running or hot engine or fill fuel tank indoors. Wipe up spilled gasoline. Open doors if engine is run in garage—— exhaust fumes are dangerous. Do not run engine indoors. Never smoke while refueling, Never store equipment with gasoline in the tank, inside a building where fumes may reach an open flame or spark. ‘Allow engine to cool before storing in any enclo- sure. Do not change engine governor settings or over- speed engine. Keep vehicle and attachments in good operating condition and keep safety devices in place. Keep all nuts, bolts, and screws tight to be sure equipment is in safe working condition. Keep engine free of grass, leaves or excessive grease to reduce fire hazard. Prevent accidental operation of the starter or engine. Always turn off key switch and disconnect spark plug wire whenever working on the electrical system. Also do this when making adjustments to the engine or other moving parts. After operating the tractor or engine, never touch exhaust muffler until it has had sufficient time to cool. Always keep positive battery post covered with plastic Terminal Cover. OPERATION BEFORE STARTING ENGINE FILLING GAS TANK CAUTION: Never smoke while fill tank. Wipe dust and dirt from around gas tank cap before removing it. Fill gas tank with fresh, clean “regular” grade gasoline having an octane rating of 90 or higher. We recommend non-leaded gasoline. Low-lead or leaded “regular” grades are acceptable if the octane rating is 90 or higher. DO NOT use premium, ethyl, or white gasoline, or regular gasoline having an octane rating below 90. Never use special additives such as carburetor cleaners, deicers or moisture-removing liquids in the gasoline. IMPORTANT: Do not mix oil with gasoline. Be sure fuel containers are clean. CHECKING ENGINE CRANKCASE OIL LEVEL Place tractor on a level surface. Stop engine and wipe dust and dirt from around the dipstick. Re- move dipstick. Oil level should be between “L” and "F” mark. Add oil as necessary. Oil level should never be above the “F”” mark. IMPORTANT: Change oil after the first 2 hours of operation. CHECKING AIR FILTER Be sure the carburetor air filter is clean. 9 gas STARTING THE ENGINE 1. Disengage PTO clutch by pulling lever rear- ward. 2. Fully depress clutch pedal and shift transmis- sion into neutral. Set parking brake by rotat- ing No. 158 Parking Brake Latch forward so that it lays on top of No. 23 Clevis——a firm pressure on No. 1P Pedal will tighten the brake band and at the same time allow the No. 15B Latch to drop behind the threaded end of the Clevis and hold tractor in braked position. (NOTE: An extra firm pressure on ‘the Pedal will release the pressure on the Latch so that it may swing up and back and allow the No. 1P Pedal to come back into an operating position——check the adjustment of this No. 15B Latch periodically as the Band will stretch and wear over a period of time.) Adjust per_maintenance instructions in this manual. NOTE: The engine will not start un- less the PTO is disengaged and the Clutch Pedal is depressed! 3. Pull Throttle Control about half way out. 4. If the engine is cold, pull the choke knob out, too. NOTE: You may “Lock” both Throttle and Choke Controls (in the position you have selected) by rotating the Handles 1/4 turn clockwise. They are “unlocked” by a 1/4 turn counterclockwise. DO NOT “over-tighten” or “over-loosen”’ these Controls——a 1/4 turn in either direction is sufficient. 5. Insert Key in No. 51 Switch and turn clock- wise (the Switch will activate the starter). When the Engine starts release the Key. NOTE: Let engine warm up before applying load. With engine running, the ammeter needle should register charge (+). If it does not, check the electrical connections or contact your dealer. OPERATING THE TRACTOR With left foot still depressing No. 1P Pedal, re- lease and raise No. 15B Brake Latch, select gear you wish, and release Pedal slowly. (NOTE: Initial- ly the No. 29 Belt may grab or jump as the Belt is new and has not broken-in. Henee it is advisable to start your Tractor in an open area away from people and obstacles and using the lower gears (1st and 2nd) drive around to break the belt in and at the same time get the “feel” of your new Tractor). With the Tractor moving you can turn left or right simply by pulling back gradually on the appro- priate Right or Left Steering Brake Handle—the harder you pull on the selected Handle, the “faster and sharper” the turn, up to the point where the Track stops dead and the tractor begins to pivot around. (NOTE: Never pull both Steering Brake Handles back at the same time. This locks up and overloads the Transaxle and can cause “shearing” of the Keys in the Axles! To prevent this overload situation, a No. 47 Plate Assembly is installed to protect the tractor. This assembly must be period- ically inspected and adjusted when necessary per ‘the instructions in the maintenance section of this manual. STOPPING THE TRACTOR When you wish to stop your Tractor, depress the No. 1P Pedal completely and you will come to a positive “braked” stop. Shift gear shift to neutral position, release Pedal slowly and Tractor will assume an idling position. To Stop Engine, push Throttle Control all the way in and idle engine for one or two minutes. Turn ignition key counter- clockwise (to “oft”). Remove the key. For added safety, it is suggested that you always stop the Engine, remove the Ignition Key and set your Park- ing Brake each time you leave the Tractor unat tended. 4A CAUTION: Be careful tractor does not upset when working with rear-mounted tools, especially when working on hillsides. Always back up a steep incline and work downhill. AA MOWER SAFETY When using your tractor with a mower: 1.Mow only in daylight or in good artificial light. 2. Never make a cutting height adjustment while ‘engine is running. 3. Shut engine off when unclogging discharge chute. 4. Check Blade mounting bolts for proper tight- ness at frequent intervals. 5, Do not use tractor for mowing unless mower discharge chute guard is in place. A CAUTION: 1. Keep all shields and discharge chute guard in place. 2. Before servicing machine, disengage power, shut off engine, make sure knife arms have stopped revolving, disconnect spark plug cable. 3, Do not stand near machine while knives are in motion. 4, Keep hands, feet and clothing away from power driven parts. LUBRICATION AA CAUTION: Before servicing your tractor, be sure to shut off engine, set parking brake and re- move the ignition key. Wait for all movement to stop before servicing machine. CHECKING ENGINE CRANKCASE OIL LEVEL Daily or every 5 hours of operation, check the engine crankcase oil level. Park the tractor on a level surface, stop the engine, and raise the hood. Wipe dust and dirt from around the dipstick. Pull out the dipstick to check oil level. If necessary, add engine oil of the proper viscos- ity (see below) to bring oil level up to the full “"F"" mark on the dipstick when the dipstick is pushed in tight. (Summer: Above 32°F or 0°C-—SAE 30) (Winter: Below 32°F or 0°C--SAE 5W-20) ‘Some increase in oil consumption may be expected when SAE BW-20 oil is used. Check oil level more frequently. NEVER PUT ADDITIVES IN THE CRANKCASE. Oil used, must conform to one of the following specifications: AP1 Service CD/SE, CD/SD, CC/SD, or SD MIL-L-46152 MIL-L-2104C As further assurance of quality, the oil should be identified as suitable for AP1 Service Designa- tion SD. LUBRICATING GREASE FITTINGS AL CAUTION: Before servicing your tractor, be sure to shut off engine, set parking brake and re- move the ignition key. Wait for all movement to stop before servicing machine. Grease fittings are located as follows: Qty. Location 8 No. 12 Axle (end) 2 No. 10 Front Idler (tube) 2 No. 11 Rear Idler (tube) CHANGING ENGINE CRANKCASE OIL Change oil after first two hours of operation and every 25 hours or each week of operation, there: after. Drain crankcase when oil is hot and all dirt and foreign material is in suspension. NOTE: Change oil every 8 hours when working in extremely dusty conditions. To drain oil, remove plug in right side of engine ——eatch in pail or similar container. Dispose of drain oil properly! Replace drain plug and fill crankcase with oil of the proper viscosity to full “F” mark on dipstick. SERVICE INTERVAL CHART Daily or every 5 hours of operation: 1. Check crankease oil level. 2. Clean engine air intake side panels and grill. 3. Grease Sprockets and Idlers. 4. Check Track tension. 5. Check Parking Brake Latch adjustment 6. Check No. 47 Plate adjustment. Weekly or Every 25 hours: 1, Change engine crankcase oil 2. Clean air filter. 3. Check battery electrolyte level. Monthly or Every 100 hours: 1. Clean engine shrouds and cooling fins. 2. Check transmission lubricant level. (Change lubricant every 500 hours or 2 years.) 3. Check spark plug gap. Spring and Fall: 1. Clean fuel strainer. Use the above Service Interval Chart as a remind- er of periodic and seasonal services that must be performed to keep your tractor running smoothly. If necessary, refer to the appropriate page in the “Lubrication” or “Maintenance” sections of this manual for detailed instructions on how to per- form the service. MAINTENANCE This section of your operator’s manual describes simple adjustments and services that you can per- form to keep your tractor running smoothly. Sometime your tractor may need service that re- quires special tools or “know-how”. Then it is best to contact your Magnatrac dealer. A CAUTION: Prevent accidental operation of the starter or engine. Disconnect spark plug cable when working on the electrical system or when making adjustments to the engine or other moving parts. IMPORTANT: Never operate tractor with engine side panels or grille removed. Keep perfo- rated openings in grille and side panels clean at all times. CLEANING ENGINE AIR INTAKE, SIDE PANELS, AND GRILLE Daily or every 5 hours of operation, make a vis- ual check of the grille and side panel perforated openings. The engine is air-cooled and must have an ample supply of air to prevent it from overheat- ing. Wipe off all dirt or debris from the perforated ‘openings; check perforated openings often, espe- cially when mowing or mulching leaves CLEANING AIR FILTER Weekly or every 25 hours of operation (more often when operating in extremely dusty condi- tions), clean the air filter. Open grille, remove cover and lift out air filter. Clean the filter by tap- ping it lightly against a solid object to shake out the dust. You also can use a brush to remove dust particles. Never dip the filter into a liquid cleaner of any type or use compressed air to clean it. Re- place the filter if it is bent. crushed, or damaged. LR FILTER BASE PAPER aie Pui ELENENT ‘LEAN HOUSING {AIR FILTER COVER: IMPORTANT: Never run engine with filter re- moved. Wipe dust from the filter cover. Reassemble the filter and cover, first making sure the filter is prop- erly seated around the air cleaner base. Tighten the wing nut on cover finger tight. CLEANING ENGINE SHROUDS AND COOLING FINS Be sure the engine cooling fins and the shrouds which enclose them are clean at all times. Dirt, oil, and other debris which may have entered through the screens may lorlge on cooling fins, restricting the normal air flow. Overheating causes serious damage to the engine parts. IMPORTANT: Do not run engine with shrouds removed. CLEANING V-BELTS 4 CAUTION: Do not attempt to clean the belts while tractor is running. Clean belts by wiping them with a clean cloth. Immediately wipe off any spilled oil or grease. Do ot use solvents because they will soften the mate- rial and cause the belts to grab. CHECKING BATTERY ELECTROLYTE LEVEL A CAUTION: Be careful not to allow sparks or flames near a charged battery. Protect against fire and explosion. Keep positive battery terminal cov- ered with plastic terminal cover on end of cable. Every 25 hours or each week of operation, check the electrolyte level of each cell by removing ‘the cap. Water should completely cover the plates at all times. If necessary, fill each cell with distilled water to the top of the circular split ledge in the filler tube, IMPORTANT: When adding water to the bat- tery during freezing weather, run engine at least an hour to make sure water ‘and electrolyte have mixed thoroughly. Keep the battery fully charged during the winter to prevent freezing. Keep battery connections tight at all times, espe- cially when charging batteries. Loose cables will cause arcing, pitting of connections and eventual failure. NOTE: Most battery damage occurs when elec: trolyte level is too low (below top of plates). Most machine damage (acid spill and corrosion) occurs when electrolyte level is too high, CLEANING BATTERY Remove battery cables (negative cable, first). Use a wire brush to remove corrosion around bat- tery terminals. Wash terminals with a solution con- sisting of one part baking soda to four parts water. Do not allow cleaning solution to run into battery cells. Wash entire battery case, platform, and hold- down parts with clear water and wipe dry. Coat battery terminals with petroleum jelly and connect battery cables (positive cable, first). Be sure both cables are tight. Place plastic boot over positive cable. Be sure top and bottom vent hole: cap are open. each cell SETTING SPARK PLUG GAP Use a round, wire-type feeler gauge to check the spark plug gap after every 100 hours of operation. The distance between the electrodes should be 0.025 inch (0.5364 mm). Bend the outer electrode only for proper gap. If the electrodes have burned short or have be- come pitted, install a new spark plug. Use a spark plug wrench to remove plug. Always use a new spark plug gasket when replacing plug. Tighten plug to 15 to 20 ft-lbs. (20 to 27Nm) torque. ADJUSTING CARBURETOR A CAUTION: Prevent burns. Do not touch engine shrouds, or muffler if tractor engine has been runnin If the engine misses, backfires, surges, or starts hard, carburetor adjustment may be required. Depress clutch pedal and move shift lever into NEUTRAL. Disengage PTO clutch. Set parking brake before adjusting carburetor. Idle adjustment and high-speed adjustment must be made at the same time as each affects the other. Adjust as follows: 1. Turn high-speed mixture needle clockwise Until closed. Close finger tight only. Then open 1-1/2 turns. 2. Turn idle mixture needle clockwise until closed. Close finger tight only. Then open 2 complete turns. 3. Start engine and raise throttle lever on dash panel to “FAST” position. Allow engine to ‘warm up. 4. Turn high-speed mixture needle 1/8 turn each time, clockwise or counterclockwise, until engine runs smoothly at full throttle, Keep needle position slightly on the rich side {open) when operating tractor with power driven equipment such as the mower or snow thrower. 5. Move throttle lever to “SLOW” position and turn idle mixture needle 1/8 turn each time, clockwise or counterclockwise, until engine idles smoothly. 6. Advance throttle lever quickly to check for uniform acceleration. If engine misses, gas-air mixture is to lean. Turn high-speed mixture needle counterclockwise until positive accel- eration can be obtained. ae Reptace assemmy — SONTROL cHone: ND LINKAGE © WORN tever ever Pos runs asker rove uct ‘CHAMBER ATMOSPHERIC VENT HOLE ILE aouustwent’ scREW HIGH SPEED ADJUSTMENT SCREW If excess exhaust smoke is noticed, mixture is too rich. Readjust idle mixture needle, if necessary, until good balance is achieved and engine idles smoothly between 1200 and 1700 rpm. The idle speed screw adjusts the speed at which the engine idles. This is factory-adjusted and will not normally require adjustment. Leave all other adjustments of carburetor and governor to your, serviceman, CLEANING FUEL STRAINER (Once a year, clean the fuel strainer located on bottom of gas tank. Turn fuel shut-off valve knob clockwise to close; counterclockwise to open valve. Close the fuel shut-off valve and disconnect the hose from valve. Attach a 12inch length of 1/4-inch rubber hose, open the shut-off valve and drain the gas tank into a clean container. Remove hose from valve and unscrew the shutoff valve assembly from the gas tank. Thoroughly clean all particles from the in-line strainer. Reinstall the valve assembly, close the valve, connect the hose, and fill the gas tank. Disconnect hose at fuel pump and open the fuel shut-off valv When gas begins to run out, connect the hose. This procedure will prevent an air lock in the gas line. ADJUSTING PARKING BRAKE LATCH Rotate No. 158 Parking Brake Latch forward so that it lays on top of No. 23 Clevis. By screwing the No. 23 Clevis “on or off” of No. 11 Rod, adjust the Rod so that firm pressure on No. 1P Pedal will tighten the Brake Band and at the same time allow the No. 15B Latch to drop behind the threaded end of the Clevis and hold the tractor in a braked position. An extra firm pressure on the Pedal will release the pressure on the Latch so that it may swing up and back and allow the No. 1P Pedal to come back into an operating position— check the adjustment of this No. 15B Latch periodically as the Band will stretch and wear over a period of time; screw the No. 23 Clevis further on the No. 11 Rod to tighten the Brake as wear makes this adjustment necessary. IDLER PULLEY ADJUSTMENT (No. 25 & 24) With No. 24 Idler set at the end of its respective slot in No. 10 Arm, slide down No. 25 Idler assem- bly so that the No. 30 Spring is stretched to a length (measured from “loop” center to “loop’* center) of 10-3/4” ~ tighten the 3/8-16 x 1-3/4 Cap Screw. (NOTE: To get fine adjustment of clutching action, you must rely on proper setting of No. 25 and 24 pulleys.) To decrease the slack in the No. 29 Belt (when you have the No. 1P Pedal depressed) you must lower the No. 25 Pulley down its slot in No. 1X Guard. To increase the slack, you must raise the No. 25 Pulley in its slot. If adjusting the No. 25 Pulley does not give sufficient slack, you can slide the No. 24 Pulley down its slot for even further slack adjustment. At this time check that No. 18 Guide is approximately 1/4” above the back side (outside) of No. 29 Belt when Belt is under spring tension — if not, loosen 3/8-16 x 2-1/2 Cap Screw on No. 24 Idler, rotate and adjust No. 18 Guide and retighten Cap Screw. NOTE: After making this adjustment check that No. 41 Interlock Switeh is in proper adjustment. INTERLOCK SWITCH ADJUSTMENT (No. 41) With the No. 1P Pedal fully depressed, the “leaf” of No. 46 Spring will rise to contact and depress the plunger on the lower end of No. 41 Switch. (Make no adjustments with Engine run- ning.) A. NOTE: If the Starter does not activate with No. 1P Pedal fully depressed, then the plunger on No. 41 Switch is not being depressed by No. 46 Spring sufficiently to complete the electrical cir cuit. Correct this by loosening “upper nut” on the threaded stem of No. 41 Switch and push the No. 41 Switch down — take up the “slack” by locking tight with the “lower nut”. B. NOTE: If the Starter is able to be activated in any position other than with the No. 1P Pedal fully depressed, then the “leaf” of No, 46 Spring is depressing the No. 41 Switch too soon. Correct this by loosening the lower nut of No. 41 Switch and pulling up on No. 41 Switch — take up the “slack” by locking tight with “upper nut” on threaded stem of No. 41 Switch. STEERING BRAKE ADJUSTMENT Pull back on each No. 8A Steering Lever — you should be able to pull back approximately 4-1/2" (measured at the end of the lever) before the No. 21 Band tightens around the No. 20 Drum. If you do not have the (above) 4-1/2" movement of the Levers, you may remove the Hitch Pin and Clevis, Pin in the “Clevis” end of No. 16 Yoke and screw the “clevis” up or down to adjust for the proper movement of the Levers——replace Clevis Pin and secure with original Hitch Pin. (This adjustment is to be made for both the Right and Left Steering Levers.) NOTE: After making this adjustment, check that your No. 47 Plate is still in proper adjustment. (Refer to No. 47 Interlock Plate.) INTERLOCK PLATE (No. 47) The reason for the No. 47 Interlock Plate Assembly is to prevent the operator from pulling both No. 8A Steering Brake Levers back at the same time; to do so would overload the Transaxle and shear the axle keys. As you pull back either Steering Lever, you will notice that it will hit the underside of its respective “ear” of No. 47A Plate and begin to rotate the opposite “ear"” downward toward the other Steer- ing Lever and block it from being pulled up — hence only one Steering Lever can be pulled fully back at a time. NOTE: With one Steering Lever pulled fully back (a tight No. 21 Brake Band position) the other Steering Lever should still be able to rise up about 1/8" — the other “ear” of No. 47A Plate should never be “dead tight” against the Steering Lever which isn’t being pulled! (You can adjust for this 1/8” clearance by loosening the two 5/16-18 x 1 Cap Screws and raising or towering the No. 478 bar as needed — retighten 5/16-18 Lock Nuts.) TRACK ADJUSTMENT Tighten the “outside” No. 26A Spring Assembly (the one closest to the No. 9 Front Sprocket) un the No. 26A Spring is 3-5/8” long—length. of Spring only; do not include the two No. 15 Bush- ings in your measurement! At this time, measure the distance ““X"" as shown in the drawing below. (This is the distance between the forward end of the slot in No. 1A Wall and the forward edge of No. 14 Axle). Return to the No. 26B Spring Assembly on the other end of this same No. 14 Axle (the “inside” Spring Assembly) and tighten it until its respective “X"" distance (the distance between the forward end of the slot in No. 18 Wall and the forward edge of the other end of the same No. 14 axle,) is the same as that determined above. When properly adjusted the No. 26B Spring on the “inside"’ end of No. 14 Axle should be longer than the 3-5/8” length you set on the outside No. 264, Spring——NEVER are the two No. 26 Springs (those on each end of a single No. 14 Axle) to be the same length! Proper tensioning of the No. 30 Track requires that the No. 14 Front Axle and the No. 13 Rear Axle are always parallel to each other; in addition, the “outside face” of the No. 9 Sprocket should be parallel to the “inside face” of No. 1A Wall. Lock each of the No. 17 Rods in position by tightening the second 7/16-14 Nut and Lock Washer against the first 7/16-14 Nut. (NOTE: Tighten the second Nut while holding the first Nut with a wrench — the first Nut must not turn or it ill change your Spring Assembly adjustment.) It is understood that after you make the (above) Track Tensioning adjustment, you will go to the other side of the Tractor and make the same adjustment to the other No. 30 Track. s NN eaqeEN NN a THESE TWO DIMENSIONS LUST.
