It appears you are missing the belt guard for the PTO engine pulley. If the bolts are out where the guard should go it will spew oil out the bolt holes and land near the battery like in your pics.

Thank You !!! I actually was having a very depressing day today thinking I was going to have to rebuild this engine , I never would have figured that out . Those belts I got off eBay for the pto all the same numbers you posted except there are 2 letters after the number . Tight to the point that they spin the pto without being engaged .
Thanks a million Bolens 1000 :)

Glad it was an easy Fix!

The 42.5'' Belts should not engage when the PTO is off. Mind posting a pic or the link to the belts you got.

You do know there is an adjustment for the PTO right?

Here was that ebay listing http://www.ebay.com/...4.m1439.l2649 .

Is the adjustment right where the pot shaft is with the 3 bolts connect to the front axle ?

Those are indeed genuine Belts :D

 

Yes loosening the 3 bolts will allow you to raise or lower the PTO to get the desired clearance.

I'll be curious to see how many years you get out of these. This set is pretty old since it has the Bolens Name printed right on it.

I believe they stopped printing the Bolens name on the belts in the late 80's so this means these belts are at least 20-25 years old.

You cant beat the price though.

I was looking at the adjuster this morning and it looks like the adjustment is all the way up all 3 bolts are bottomed out and all the slot is above the bolts .

Without that top belt guard to hold the belts in place,  adjusting them may be a problem.

There have been times that I have had to make the slots longer (by filing) to gain some extra adjustment.

 

As Brian said, you really need that upper belt guard, as well as the lower guard around the PTO pulley.  ....Although they are called guards, their purpose is actually to control where the slack in the belt occurs, to prevent the belt from dragging in the pulley when the PTO is not engaged.

I took the guards off to change the belt and then decided to leave them off untill I installed the new belts this coming weekend . I will check into the adjustment also .
Thanks .
