my current tractor is a 67 jacobsen cheif 1000 with a 10hp kohler and a 48"berco snow plow.while plowing today i noticed the belt was slowly starting to slip then it got to the point it wont back up with me on it, is this a sign i need a new belt?

Welcome to the site! I would say a new belt would help, and an adjustment while your at it.

manual, the loaded ags and 50lbs of weight help it plow whatever but i think it took a toll on the belt. i have the stock rims with chains for it as well.

how do i adjust the belt? i had to put a spring on the clutch within a few weeks of having it could it be the spring? or could the idle pulley be to small?

It would be easier for you to see the picture and read the procedure. Go to manuals at the top of the page, there are manuals for your tractor there that you can download for free. it's in the operators manual. any problems just repost here and I'll help you out. Chris

No problem! FYI the ford 100 books and parts are the same as a jacobsen 1000.
