My S-10 Gear is in need of a ground drive belt change. I recently acquired this tractor and have got parts manual and owners manuals off the internet. It requires a matched pair and to look at the belt and pulley setup I can not figure out how to get new belts into it without at least loosening and pulling the bevel gear box back out of its position, hoping the double pulley comes out along with it. There is simply no room to loop new belts over the pulley attached to the bevel gear box. Anybody ever done a belt replacement on the old style Ariens S type gear models? My owners manual does not go deep enough to offer instructions on changing the ground drive belts. It was probably a "see your dealer" type of thing.
Thanks for any help!!
