hey everyone I recently replaced both the primary and secondary belts with OEM John deere belts and having some issues after "adjusting the variator according to the service manual". I have the service manual and know about the disconnecting the spark plug, adjusting the bolt and allowing the clutch to rise. The tractor is having issues where I start to go up hills and the mower just stops, showing that it is not adjusted well. When you move the lever into a higher position like the 4th 5th the belt must tighten and it starts moving again. I would like the variator to work again as i feel like I am either whipping the tractor around am going too slow. When you look at the picture below i feel that the bolt comes in to adjust near 11 has different wiggle room and didn't know if should be higher or lower.
Please let me know if there is a way to manually adjust this or if there might be another issue. Thank you in advance
