Pre 1968 John Deere 110.
Having a time with the belts.
The belt for the kick pedal, from the PTO was not with the tractor. The belt from the Mule to the deck also was not with the tractor.
Looking in the John Deere parts book online, they are listing the belt from the mule to the mower deck as being between 70 something and eighty inches.
The smaller sheave 3-1/4" sheave on the PTO was not available, I opened the smaller sheave but could not find the bearing with a small enough ID to fit the 1/2" bolt that holds it on. I was stuck with the larger sheave pulley from John Deere. It is about 4-1/2" OD and so a little longer belt was needed. I found the 4L300 from NAPA to be a fit. Not quite as much room for adjustments with the larger sheave.
Now is when it gets interesting.
I have a Gates belt that is suppose to fit from the mule to the mower deck, that belt is green Gates Power rated belt 5L680K and is 68" on the outside circumference. Much too long.
I took an extension cord, about 3/8ths in diameter and wrapped it around the pulleys, from the mule to the decks pulley, marked the cord and measured, it comes to 58", which I know will not be quite right but it should get it close.
So, with the parts book, from the dealer and also from the parts stores not having the proper numbers for the belts, at least not the right numbers for this unit, can anyone enlighten Me as to what belts I really need ?
