Replacing 717 drive belt.

Recommended Posts

Well its been a long time since I have done this on my tractor so I really only remember one mistake I made.Isnt it funny how you always remember the mistake, LOL Here is my tip... The belt has a twist in it and if its not twisted the right way your forward gears will be reverse and the reverse will be forward.So when you first try it out make sure you have lots of room around you and expect the unexpected LOL.This really got me when I did it and I ran over all my tools and almost ran into the side of the garage before I got it stopped,it all happen so fast. The belt really is not that hard to change other than twisting it in the right direction.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
