I bought this lawn tractor back in November. I believe that it is a 1967 (55300) or 1968 (55301) Toro Suburban 10 lawn tractor, I cannot find a name plate anywhere on the mower. This has the cast iron 10 HP Kohler engine. I bought this because i needed a mower and i have been interested in getting an older lawn tractor that worked but needed some minor work.
When i bought this, the only thing that was needed was the belt for the mower. I have been having trouble finding the correct size belt. I cannot find anywhere that lists the size belt that is needed, I found the parts manual and it only shows the drive belts. I have tried a 5/8" 75" long belt and it seemed to be too tight, i then tried a 5/8" 76" long and that pops off the pulleys when i engage the mower.
I was hoping someone would be able to help me figure out few things that i have questions on.
What size belt is needed for the mower?
Where should the name plate be that states the model number and serial number?
Any help will be appreciated.
