Are the drive belts for the variable speed system dealer only or is there a good source for them elsewhere? Also what size were the original front tires, mine seem to be too big they rub the deck if cust too sharp. Thanks Jim

6.5" wide is the stock front tire size. There are adjustable stops to prevent the tires from rubbing. The old Masseys don't turn very sharp.

Not sure about the 12g belts.... it might be a dealer only item?

I got 2 new belts from the dealer a few weeks ago...Boy, they make a difference.....I have heard there are other sources, but you have to watch the angle of the "V".....I didn't want to take that chance, so paid the $85 for the pair......and they had them in stock.
