Is 1/2 inch belt size difference OK?

Recommended Posts

am going to change drive belt ob my '83 model 4211. Calls for a 78.5 inch belt. I have spares but on e is 78.0 inches and other is a 79.0 inches. Would the 78.0 work? Would there be a problem with declutching,i.e., too much tension causing the drive to creep? I know some belt stretching comes from use.

Give it a try, look at how much adjustment you have. My guess is less rather than more...someone told me that the incremental inch measure on a simplicity belt is marketing and that they are really full inch mark only. Never measured one to check...
