Has anyone had experience making belts stops for the walk behinds? And if so, what is the best way to go about it? I know that some are longer on the end, some have a slight bend in the middle, and all have the loop on the end

 

Seems like it would need to be a pretty heavy gauge wire but also be able to maintain some rigidity to hold the belt close to the pulley.

 

Any help in advance is appreciated.

 

Greg

its a 3/16 rod not a wire. easiest way to make them if you don't have a bender, is to weld a flat washer on the end of the rod. making the 90* bends is easy in the vise. Some tractors also used a curved piece of metal with tabs welded on that went around the crank pulley.
