Thats strange was it one of mine or one that claimed to replace the 1714690?

 

Is your pulley the original OD and width? Thats the only thing I can think of as being the problem.

There was another belt number - 1108464 - that was listed for the early hydraulic lift kits. 

 

It was described as 31", which is also what the 1714690 belt is described as being.

 

Did the 1714690 supersede the 1108464 ??

 

Were either of these belts "half" sizes?

 

Were both of these belts 1/2" top width?

Now that you mention that I think i remember coming across a partslist with that number in it, looking at Bolens spec sheets the 1714690 was cogged and a special 31.97''

 

1108464 was a regular wrapped belt shown to be 31''

I have just got our Ride-a-Matic (1960) running again after nearly 25 years - rebuilt the back end.

 

I am trying to select the correct v belts; have ascertained they should be B series according to the pulley groove widths.

 

The manual just says 24" and 42" - these cant be inside lengths because I have tried them and are way to big. It must be either the outside length or the pitch length (in between). Can anyone help? Otherwise I will attempt to measure or do trial and error.

Each manufacture has their own way of measuring the size

 

I have the correct ones here if needed, just send me a PM

The specified dimension is the outside circumference (length) of the belts you need.  

 

Most, but not all, belts found in the lawn & garden industry are specified by their outside length.

Thanks, I think postage would kill it to get them from your side.

I think what you say ties up with my measurements - rather tricky. I believe most belts over here are specified by their inside length, but possibly different in the States.

Quite possibly different here.  .....I wasn't considering other countries in my post.

 

Most of our belts are sold under their inch size.  ...Do your equipment belts sold by inch or mm designations?

B21 for the 24" belt (or 5L240), B39 for the 42" belt (5L420). Pretty much universal globally.

24" and 42" is the approximate outside length, 21" and 39" inside length.
