    Ok, looked it up and got the part # for the new belt.  says I need part# 2164080sm , has anyone here gotten this belt for their tractor.  Is it the rite one, does it work effectively.  I don't want to spend $60 on the wrong belt.

That should be correct. The question is, is the vari drive in good enough condition to warrant spending the money.

Worth a shot then, I'd say.  I'd have love to seen a pictorial on the variable before, during and after the fixes...as well as rearl world results in variable speed.

I have rebuilt them before.Gather up low wear parts and lube up good.When everything is tight and adjusted to spec they are smooth as silk and can just about do a wheel stand.If you have worn parts you might as well forget it...

     OH WHY OH WHY DO HAVE TO TAKE EVERYTHING APPART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   this whole thing started as a whine in the rear while snow blowing, one thing leads to another take the variable speed rear end out due to the spacers chewing into the side cover. put in a standard rear end, modify the input shaft to accept the variable speed drive,  had to re-build all the shafts re-make all the hubs and so on.  finally getting it back together and cant remember where half the bolts go, I am getting it but it's like WHY OH WHY didn't I take pics!!!!!!!!

Better to be able to rebuild it before it breaks something, your in good hands here, the guys will help you though.

The belt is pricey, but after installing a new one and going through the entire adjustment procedure it is working smooth as silk now. I really like the feature for snow blowing. Just move the lever for more or less feed speed, no shifting, can't beat it.
