I replaced the drive belt on my Ford YT16H and now it pulls as it should , I suppose. It would not climb an incline that I mow and all my previous mowers climbed with ease. It now goes up forward or backward. I plan to replace the two deck drive belts and mow with the Ford for the next few years, God willing.

I was planning to post a pic but it seems Photobucket has a problem right now.

Sounds like a easy solution to the problem. I wonder how many tractors, hydros especially, get wrote off with bad transmissions when really all they need is a new belt.

King of the Hill???  What are those other Two black things there, servants?  Is that a big Buick or Cad?  Lincoln?  I can't figure out which. This must be the "Dump-spot" for those troubled gadgets in the Kingdom.
