I need to order "V" belts for my tractor and attachments. Does anyone know the correct top widths and heights for the belts for;

 

- Simplicity Model "D" Transmission 40" 1.4HP Belt

- 24" Mower Belts (27" Real Drive, 31" 1.5HP Power Belt)

- 30" Sickle Bar 33" Power belt

 

Thanks for the help!

these things are old school and what  you really need to know is whether your pulley is 1/2" or 5/8". !/2 is an A belt, 5/8" is a B belts. normally I just ask the parts guy for a 1/2 x 40 or 5/8 x 40 belt. I going to guess you need B or 5/8 belts for the tractor drive and A or 1/2 for the attachments.

Thanks Lauber. I love to learn about all of this stuff!

 

Do you know if the measurements in the "Owners Manual and Parts List" are the outside diameter of the belt? I would assume so but assumptions have hurt in the past!

when they measurement a belt at the store they put it an a thing that resembles a set of pulleys, so I would say they measure the inside of it. I ussally take an old junk belt, cut it, then wrap it over the pulley set, then mark it at the over lap. measuring this will give you pretty close to the correct size. I would get one that size and one smaller and one bigger sized, you can always take back the wrong ones and get your money back. you wont have to run back and forth to the store if you do it this way.

Do you have the original part numbers?

 

If those are the lengths you need in the first post get me a picture and measurement across your pulleys and I'll set you up with the correct belts the first time

Thanks much for the offer, just saw this post and already ordered up some belts, we'll see how I make out!

 

Let me get myself squared away with the build a bit more and when I get there I'll reach out. Very kind of you to help out!
