Welcome to GT Talk. Your asking for a hard one, not very many around, Lauber1 is the DB Suburban man, he should be around later on.

you almost have to find another tractor to get an original one. They don't come up for sale often and making the tractors belts work right is hard with out one.

What size of pulley would I need if I just want to drive the transmission?

I would have to go out and get you a measurement this weekend, our weather isn't being to nice right now. Seems to me its around 2  1/2" with a 1" bore.

ok you need to find a 4" pully with an 1" bore. This will get the belt s in the proper place so the vari-speed works right.

4" is incorrect. All DB suburbans from 1959 to 1965 used a 3" pulley from the motor to the speed changer. The only exceptions were that it could be changed to an optional 2.5" pulley when using a snowblower or a rototiller. The 2.5" pulley slowed the ground speed for these tasks. The 4" sheave was for attachments such as the rotary mower or the snowblower. Don't mean to step on anyone's toes here but there is a lot of misinformation out there about these tractors and I just wanted to clear this up. Rick
