716h snowblower belt

NOTE: the original response below is for a 7100 series tractor, not a 7000 series - I didn't notice the tractor model in the title line of the post.

Simplicity part #1666798, 147.1".

However, a 146" belt will work fine but IMO, make sure it's a kevlar belt; such as where I get mine:

OEM set-up for that tractor was for the front PTO.

That said, many have modified the cone clutch idler to give the correct angle to the snowblower idler.

Is this the first time you are using it on this tractor? Single or double idlers on blower hitch?

Belt length mentioned above might work depending on your set-up.

 

You can also do a search on the site, I'm pretty sure there has been more than one post on the topic.

Good catch Greg.  I didn't notice that.  

The 147" belt definitely won't work if the tractor's mid PTO system wasn't swapped out to the 7100 series style.  

In the post BLT references above, it's reported a 143" belt works with the modified setup due to frame difference between the 7000/7100 series tractors.

My note was where someone installed a side plate from a 900/7100 series tractor to a 712H tractor and made the front mount work.

I agree that if you replace the entire 7100 series mid PTO setup (side plate, hanging idler setup with double tab, and movable idler that bolts to the side plate) you can run the single pulley snowblower hitch work on a 7000 series - but the belt needs to be shorter due do to the slightly longer 7100 series frame.   

It's also been reported that you can make the original 7000 mid PTO setup work with the single pulley snowblower hitch; I don't remember the details and can't find any posts on the subject. 

PS - I'll edit my 2 previous posts to avoid confusion.

      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 
      Paul
