3416 H Belt Help

Recommended Posts


The deck belt (arbor belt) is a 4L860 or a 1/2" wide belt by 86" long.

I use Fleet Farm belts, and the tractor I use the most for mowing, the belt is at least 10 years old. And I am mowing over 2 acres.

I have found that belt life is more dependent on storage than operating. In the fall I always release the belt tension remove the belts and hang them up.

Every old tractor that I have picked has the deck belt still in tension, even though these belts looks like new, none will make more than a couple of mowings most will only hold up for a few minutes.

      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!😁
