Replaced the Hella lights, which one was broken on the tractor with standard square auto lights and new switch. Now have two brightness's and dash light also.
Anyone interested in the big insert bulbs, wire clip or rubber boots can have them for the postage. Also have one flat glass, the reflectors are toast and used mounts off them for new bulbs.

Trying to change the belt on this deck. PO took off the idler pulleys and I'm replacing and needs longer belt now. Have gear boxes on deck. Figure I have to remove the shaft between them to get belt off. SO, figured out to remove the C-clips and then the sleeve slides back on shaft and off the splines and it lifts out. One came off, but can't get other to move yet. Soaking and sanding on that. Spline side is loose, it is the smooth side on shaft that is rusted. So, is this the way it is done? Not a real user freindly set-up for sure. Besides that, not sure exact size of belt, so will be putting on/off several times to test fit, makes it worse.

have a friend that customizes mowers he uses an extreamly long belt that is cut in the middle and wraps is around all the componets and puts some tension on it and marks it at the overlap and that gives you the approximate length and if there are alot of spring tensioners you can go down an inch or so ,

Done that with a half inch rope too. At least it gets you close.

Grumpy, what model is the Speedex?
