Does anybody have belt sizes for the 2 belts? Can someone please measure them?

What is the model number of the tractor? If you can find that, try the manual section for the correct manual.

The manual should have the belt sizes, or part number you can cross reference.

I think the small one is 5/8x24 and the long one is 1/2x42, but I'm not 100% that's accurate for your '57.

Newer style needle and seat. They'll work fine.

I think this is the wrong kit. My float doesn't move at all.
