The pulley on the transaxle input shaft should be firmly attached . â¢ Early production tractors used a splined joint between the pulley and the input shaft . â¢ Current production tractors carry the pulley on a separate hub that fits over the splined shaft . NOTE : The nut securing the pulley should be tightened to a torque of 10 - 15 ft . - lbs using an 11 / 16 â wrench . Over - torquing the nut may shear the input shaft . Replace the belleville washer between the nut and the pulley if it is flattened . NOTE : Some models used a special â fully fin - ished â nut with an extended washer face . Do not replace this nut with a standard nut unless a Figure 18.10 washer is added between the nut and the pulley . The washer must have a big enough O .
