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.
