Make sure all pullies are aligned and no bearings are worn in the idlers. The only way you can break a kevlar belt is improper routing or worn / misaligned sheaves .

 

is it possible you have the wrong size belt?

Which deck do you have? The 50 inch deck need a 97" belt according to New Holland Parts.

Sounds like those rusty pulleys are the issue. You are probably okay with that length once the pulleys are cleaned up or replaced.

Do you have any suggestions as to how to get the pulleys off ? I don't really want to use a gear puller because I don't want to reef on them too hard and bend them making them completely inoperable.
