I just bought a mostly original 853 from the original owner and it needs a PTO belt soon. Can anyone lead me in the right direction on how to replace it? Thanks.

Hello, Welcome to GTT! :wave:

 

To replace the PTO belt move your Hi/Lo range selector to the "Neutral position" To release tension on the Hi/Low drive belts, slip the drive belts off the engine pulley , Remove/loosen the PTO belt guide then loosen the 3 adjustment screws on the PToOhousing to release tension on the PTO belt, slide the belt off the sheaves generally PTO side first then engine side last .

 

If you don't have a belt already I do stock them if needed.
