I guess I'll just have to go with the shorter belt. Thanks, Daniel!

Larry, my belt at the PTO rides about like yours. But all others, it is in about 3/16".

Had a bit of a dilemma! Wanted a Ford decal on the deck, but all I had was a blue oval. Solution: make a template of the oval, tape it on, and paint that area white. Once the paint had dried, apply the decal.

Now I have the Ford oval on my deck!

Looks good Kenny, where did you get the Ford decal? I might try that on BMP.

It came with the set for the tractor I got from Daniel. Look around at auto parts places, think I saw some there when I got the big white one for the trailer.

I will have to get a shorter drive belt. The back side is rubbing the cross shaft on the mule drive and isn't tight. As much adjustment as in there, I'm beginning to think the 78-79" belt is what I need, but I'll probably get an 80".

Kenny, I am running a 82" X 1/2 on mine, it also rubs the belt guide. I bent mine up some slightly and it seems ok. I would think a shorter belt would cause the muel pullies to ride higher on the tension springs making the angle of the drive belt to the deck mandril greater. Don't Know.

I can't adjust this enough to get the tension spring to move on the mule drive. That's why I was thinking an 80". Plus, I had to put two 1/2" nuts on the other side to pull some slack out.

Not sure what your issue is. Here are some detailed pictures of my Muel drive

In the first pic, the spring piece is all the way forward, no more adjustment. I don't have that much thread on the eye bolt for the other side, maybe an inch and a half. But, with the belt snugged as far as I can get it, the back side of the belt is rubbing the round cross bar of the mule above the pulleys. Both pulleys are as far forward as I can get them.

The muel pullies should be centered. The left carrage bolt with the spring is fixed. as you tightn the righr bolt it moves the left pully foreward as the right pully compresses back on to the spring. Mine was missing the right adjusting bolt so I used a common 8" carrage bolt with a curved end.

I understand what you are saying on the adjustment. I couldn't get the left tight enough to move the other against the spring. It never moved a bit.

Would a fully threaded adjustment bolt help. I do not know what the orginal looks like. I am assuming it is not fully threaded. Also, I remembered you replaced the deck pullies, (I kept my center one orginal). If the center deck pully was changed, then you may need a shorter belt.

The pulley I changed was on the left spindle. All the others are as they came. AA full thread bolt won't help, as the adjustable pulley is to far forward now. Shorter belt is the only answer.

Here's a pic of my mule drive. Both pulleys are far enough forward, the back of the belt is rubbing the bar the pulleys hang from. That is way to far forward. The belt from the PTO pulley down goes toward the front of the tractor, instead of straight down.

The muel pullies look the same as mine. Not sure the extra threads (circiled) would help you, but as I thought the orginal adjuster looks not to have full threads. If you get a 80" belt at TSC and it is not correct they will exchange it. Been there done that. Good luck.
