Finally to the point where all I have left to do on my 200 is tie up a few loose ends and change the drive belts, the back one (variable drive to transaxle) is pretty obvious, what I am unsure about is how to change the front belt at the engine, do I have to completely remove the PTO  in order to change it?

First remove the secondary belt from the variator.

I use a clamp to hold the clutch pedal down.

You need to remove the PTO arm from the end PTO.

Then you should be able the remove the main drive belt.

That's what I was thinking, the installation is just the whole thing reversed, correct?

I use a deep well (don't remember the size) on an extension to put I through the square hole in the frame and over the secondary idler bolt to keep it up out of the way for doing that one.

some of the earlier 200 series do not have a hole for the secondary drive.  My 75 214 does not have a hole in the frame.  I had to hold it up by hand to remove the belt.
