I've only been able to get my mower drive belt locally at NAPA, no one else carries them in the 103 size.

I'll stop by NAPA today, bbuckler, that is on my list, right after I get a "legal" trailer to tow her on.

Yard work kicked my butt yesterday, got up this morning very dehydrated and decided to call in. After about 10:00 I started feeling better and decided to go to T/S and look at the trailer I spotted yesterday. $100.00 off on the sale sticker so..... It followed me home. (Thank you BMP!) 6X8 will make it easy to tote Old Girl with the deck installed. I finished the deck guard, all that is left is the 5/8 X 103" belt. NAPA wants $42.55 for a NBH BX100. I found another source here http://www.mfgsupply...-cord-belt.html for 30.35, but I figure $12.00 for shipping. I'll stop at NAPA tomorrow on the way home.

OOh but the one I am taking will steal the show! I just finished waxing her and her deck (I think Jeff Foxworthy might have a comment here) :D

Man alive that's a purty damn tractor!
You'll need to get a three point, wheel weights, and some attachments now.

I got to start a trailer fund so I can get a trailer. I think the smallest one at TSC will haul my SS15 cause I don't have a deck.

Yes, it will... But that's it.
And you will have to modify it several ways.
The lights are welded to the bottom of the trailer, and it's a tilt bed. The license plate goes below... How's that supposed to work?
There's no tailgate, so you will have to make a tailgate.
Better off going one or two size up with a ramp gate IMHO. Don't get me wrong, my little one does fine, but I've worked on it more than I should've to make it right.

I stopped at Napa and ordered the 5/8X103" belt and should have it tomorrow. Hope to be able to spin the deck up this weekend. praying.gif
I also re-did the shifter decal to brighten it up.

New NAPA belt was picked up today, Deck is installed. I adjusted the belt tensioner and blade brake per the manual. The belt said to run 5 minuets then re-tension. I'll do that this weekend and post a video. WooHoo She is all back together.
