Can someone tell me the length of the drive belt for a '68 - '70 Charger?

Year? Engine? Trans? Might make a difference. I highly recommend Yahoo Groops.com for more info.

 

Free and you can pick your model; manuals, information, lots of "goodies." Pasted below, a little info for the Charger drive belt.  :thumbs:

If your familiar with Wheel Horse, you would know that a '68 - '70 Charger is a 1968 - 1970. And a Charger only has a Kohler engine and a hydro.

Your Charger 10 (ID #1-7041) takes Wheel Horse #7478 Drive Belt,

it is 84.22" long HB/5L (Agricultural grade; 21/32" wide and 3/8" thick).

 

Always best to use a true Wheel Horse/TORO belt, even though they

are made by Gates, the are made to higher WH specifications, and

the side angle is slightly different.  You'll normally get twice the life or

more, and the correct belt only costs about 20% more. Usually always 

available on eBay with 2-3 day delivery and often the best price, even

with the shipping cost (eBay today, about $20 delivered).    Good Luck,

Glen

I am familiar with Wheel Horse but, never owned a Charger.

 

The drive belts I posted P/N's and size for, is for your convenience. I often purchase Huskee Kevlar® belts from Tractor Supply Co. which has a store just minutes from my home.

 

Purchasing TORO belts would require shipping and are certainly over priced.  :wave:
