deck idler replacement

Recommended Posts

MrSteele
Has anyone ever tried to replace the mounted idler on an old 42" deck with a spring loaded idler? Tightening the idler as the belt wears is a bit of a problem, not a great one, but, a spring loaded tensioner would solve the problem, I am just not certain there is enough room under the covers for the apparatus.

The decks built for Allis Chalmers had a spring loaded belt tightener. You could post a wanted ad in the classified and probably find one. You need the swing arm, spring and stud for the other end of the spring.

Would anyone with an AC 42" deck on a tractor be so kind as to post a pic? I am going to have a Simplicity with a spring loaded tensioner soon!
