Roger, the engine number indicates that mower is 25 something years old. Somewhere on the steering column or on the back of the tractor, should be a nine digit number separated by a period such as 917.123456. If you can find that, you can go to Sears parts and find the belt number. BLT

He's probably getting the right belt but it's not installed properly. There usually is/are stiff wire "keepers" that are installed at a right angle to the pulley that keep them from blowing off every time the belt moves around a little bit like when you depress the clutch or step on the brake. After installation of the belt take a look for any keepers and make sure they're close enough to the pulley to be effective at keeping the belt on without rubbing on the belt and tearing that up. Some of these keepers may have been bent out of the way in the process of replacing the belt or they may be missing altogether. They need to be in place in order for things to work properly. Richard

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
