Wick,TH did use Duetz two cyl. diesel`s because i have one in my mill-have a pic. for you hope it helps-the pins are spaced out from the pulley about 1/4 inch,so belts can slip and maybe more if you belts are deeper.....There two pins,another on bottom of motor pulley,could not get in pic. and same deal as top pin...

 (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

OK,next pic. shows how the belts should look,as for length,they need to be parallel form motor pulley to where they run over the idler pulley..

OK,hope this helps you,albert


 I have a TK but I think my pins are no where near that close to the center of the pulley and the blade stops good.  It almost looks like that bracket should be flipped over putting the pin a few inches away from the pulley.    steve

Steve,
A Timber Harvester and a Timber King are two very different machines. The pins on a TH should be very close to the pulley...almost touching it.

The belt you need depends on the model you have. I have the larger HT36 series and it takes a B-100, can't help you with the HT30 model. Cook's carries a similar mill and are knowledgable about TH's. There is also a mill manufacturer in PA that is run by former TH employees and our sponsor CMS employs a few ex-THers so they may be able to help too.

 Different machines but both have pulleys and a belt, on mine it keeps the belt away from the drive pully almost like pinching the belt a ways from the end..   Steve

OK guys,took another look at the guide pins for the drive belts and the top pin is 1/4 inch above edge of pulley and because of the angle of belts@bottom of pulley,this pin is 1/2 inch from edge of motor pulley-I always put stuff back together the way it came from Waterloo,ny...albert
