MOWER DECK BELT #7016 Simplicity

Recommended Posts

I believe the belt is #176439 (now 2176439) 74.1" long. Same as an AC712 with 42" deck and cone clutch. I think deck 885 was for FDT and should have had the drive pulley changed to a larger diameter to work with the cone clutch to give the correct blade tip speed. If the pulley is still the smaller diameter FDT one, the belt would probably have to be a little smaller. Use the rope trick to get the correct length.

I checked the belt length of the broken one--81 inches. At 74 inches seems there would be quite a bit of tension on the tensioner. Is this correc?? Perhaps the belt that broke was the wrong one to begin with.
