    Spreader bar between engine and tranny????

    My diesel gator really torques the engine towards the tranny when revved up. is there suppose to be a spreader bar that keeps that from happening? all the motor mounts are fine

    forgot to add Its a 2000 model 6x4,,, My concern is that when the motor is revving up and the gator is moving there is a period of time in the belt and clutches travel where the belt is loose enough to vibrate to where you can feel it.

    I ran the gator for years with a messed up drive clutch and really didn't notice anything with the belt. Now I replaced both clutches and the belt with New JD parts and notice the issue,,, the motor was locked up when I bought the gator and I replaced it with a 3tne68 yanmar instead of the 3tne66. I do not remember a brace on the motor before but the machine had been worked on alot when I bough it.
