I had this PK tractor that needed a new belt. but i did not want to pull the motor back out to change it. so I found this type of belt at BDI in olean. $24 for the 5' sleeve. time will tell how it holds up!

John, I have heard several people say they keep these around for emergencies. I don't think they are really designed to replace the standard belt for long periods of time. They are designed as a quick fix to keep the machine going till you can get a replacement belt. Don't be surprised if the lifespan of this belt is less than the factory belt. I have often considered buying one of these just for those Sunday evening mowing breakages, or middle of a snowstorm breakages. Because of Mr. Murphy, my belts always break at the most inappropriate times. One advantage of having more than one tractor that will use the same attachments is that, if you can't swap a belt, at least you can put the attachment on another machine to finish the job.

if memory serves me corectly, Dan had one of thouse bels on his B10 at the show in NY last year. I was thinking of getting one just for measuring porpouses. I always seem to go to the parts store and have to get one smaller, and one bigger with the size I "THINK" I need. With that belt, you can pop it off and measure it. Elon

Amen to Mr. Hubbard. I always seem to have belt breakages on Sunday, in the middle of a snow storm or late in the evening right before you get done doing what you need done. I started keeping spares, but never seemed to have the right one. Once had a delco/remy starter generator sieze up on an old cub cadet 70 that I was pushing snow with right at the bottom of the driveway on the next to last pass. I rebuilt the starter, but pulling the tractor up the driveway was a little hard. ;-}

One of my biggest expenses on my tractors... is belts! When I review my receipts on tractors I notice they add up fast. Fortunately, I aquired a garbage bag full of belts. I am going to build a wall of belts like my simplicity dealer and post a chart in the garage. I also started buying two belts when ever I ordered a new belt because I hate being out of a belt when one goes. Like to finish the job. Funny how greasy we can get when we are just cutting the lawn. You could hear a swear word or two periodically.

I dont know if Oreilley's Auto Parts stores are in the North or NE, but I have been using Gates Green belts from them for about 5 years now, the parts clerks here in the Texas stores claim belts sold by them have a lifetime warranty.....so far, I havent shelled any cash out for any belts in 5 years !

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
