A bit of info here

https://www.partstre...walking-tractor

 

The D-A13 pulley replaced by 8021013 was also used on the Simplicity model D.

3/4" shaft and 3 grooves 2-13/16" and 2-1/4" OD but don't know how many for what size.

Looked at a D-model and the large 2-13/16" OD is closest to the engine with 2 grooves outboard with 2-1/4" OD.

Simplicity often turned the pulley around on the crankshaft to get a different speed for the transmission.

Adding

Each groove designed for a 1/2" wide belt.

we would have to have a lot more info on the DB, as the factory built 23 different models from 47 thru 67. There a tag on the left side of the gear, with a model number at the top and a series number at the bottom. Those number will tell us what model you have and maybe about when it was built. There are no factory listed for dating one all you can be is close to the yr. if the orginal engine is still in place, there a more accurate date might be from using its numbers.

Actually, the model is a 5752. The 254 is the series number. I'm sure Lauber can fill you in more

ok that tractor was built around 1951, maybe 52 roughly, that model started in 1950, the engine would have been a Model 6 briggs, with 2hp. its used a spring clutch, instead of the ball lock ones built later on. It used a simple dual pulley with 2 1/2 on one end, & 2 1/4" on e other, with a wide space between them to run a flat belt on, in case you want to pump a little water or grind something for the chickens.  In my area 52 model tractor aren't very common, a lot more of them out east. Most common Db's here are the 51 & 560 models.
