Lift the hood and look for a decal that calls out all the belt numbers the machine takes. Ya it is a Allis not a Simplicity but is made by simplicity so I see no reason the belt use decal would not be there on a original condition machine.

Well just noticed a puddle of ww fluid next to a tire. One of the superlugs has a small leak in the sidewall. Its gonna need drained and tubed. Guess I'm gonna leave it here and just take the Case'. Between having to finish the hitch and now this, its time to move on to getting everything else ready.

Here's another update:

Managed to trade for a 48" deck. Also purchased some spindles from a fellow member and built a great deck from the purchases. Did some mowing with it and am impressed. It did well. Better than my previous mowers (nice stripes). I finished building the lift cable and installed the rear lift. Still missing a pulley needed for the rear cable that mounts under the tractor. Anyone know what diameter that needs to be. Seems like something I can get at the hardware. Also finished the sleeve hitch. Although I may make a stabilizer plate over the bolts. Here are a few pics.

One other question. I was told I needed an extra idler pulley for the tiller belt. I need one that moves the tiller belt off the hydro filter. Anyone have some pics. Maybe dimensions or one they would like to sell? Thanks

Nice tractor Eric, a baby brother to my 920d.   I pick up my spring trip snowblade and cab at the wapak show in Ohio in a couple weeks.  Lawn looks awsome, nice stripes!!    Mike

The lift pulley by the book is:

2.32 OD 0.760ID 0.42 WIDE

The large ID is due to the fact that there is a hardened bushing inside it, that the mounting bolt passes through.

The tiller belt idler can be just about anything so long as it keeps that belt from rubbing. There are two holes in the tranny plate for a mounting bracket. Ive seen folks use threaded rod through one hole, with a pulley on the end.
