Figured I'd post this as a sticky for others who need to know how to do this ...

1) First you will have to loosen the large nut on the dive shaft. It may be helpful to hold the shaft in the back with a pipe wrench as you loosen the nut.

Once you get the large nut off take out the two smaller ones.

Now take off the two bolts on each side and the plate should slide out.

2) next, To replace the drive belts you will have to remove the 4 engine mount bolts and spacers to be able to slip the belts on and off.
If you are lucky, sometimes you can get the belts on/off without removing the engine mount spacers.

[B]Once you do this you will be able to slide the old belts off and put the new ones on. For the old 3 speed models you can just lock the idler pulley away from the belts. Newer 6 speed models require you to hold back the idler while doing this

Once you do it a few times it becomes quite simple
Usually you can change the belts out without having to loosen the engine mounting bolts.
If you check on ebay and type in the Bolens belt part numbers for the belts you will find some good deals on belts

Drive belts : 1736259
PTO Belts : 1716570
Starter Belt : 1714690


The Bolens 1050 was made from 1966-1969

Yes those will fit
If your buying on ebay be sure to get Kevlar belts (Not the rubber FHP belts that are on there for $7-$12 as they are not power rated)
