A while back I remember reading somewhere that someone was making reproduction fiber reverse discs for the Walk behinds and Ride-a-matics but don't remember where I saw it.
Does anyone have a source/ contact info for these?
Part number 1706373
I cant get my HD versa-matic to go in reverse since the old disc is so worn.......

The correct part number for the large-diameter fiber reverse disc is 1706376, not 373.

There were different reverse discs for the VersaMatics.

Part #1703532 was used on 15FC-01 and 15FD-01 tractors.
Part #1704965 was used on 15FC-02, 15FD-02, 153-03 and 154-03 tractors. (Also used on 1956-57 Ride-A-Matic models 20HD.)

Both of the above drive discs were mounted on the engine pulley. ......One disc was made of bronze, the other disc was fiber (composite), but I can't remember which was which. (I think the fiber was the later style, replacing the bronze discs, but I am not certain.)

Part # 1706376 was used on 15FH-01 and 155-02. (Also used on the following RideAMatics: 1957 model 21HD, 1958 model 220, 1959 model 230, and 1960 models 231 & 232.)

Part # 1706376 was a fiber (composite) disc, and was mounted on the driven (variable speed) pulley.

The Bronze was the early disc as my 55' Versa-Matic has the hard to find bronze disc. Luckily I have 2 NOS ones stashed away
