Put a new belt on my SS16 today. Sears part number is 2692R, in the manual I downloaded someone wrote in STD325830 5/8"x83". I bought a Huskee 5/8" x 83" Kevlar at TSC. Now I cannot get it adjusted to where it will stop to put it in gear. While in gear it will stop. Any suggestions as to what I need to do. It does seem to have plenty grip under a load.

That 2692R converts to 5/8" X 83", so that would be correct. Wonder if someone changed an idler to a slightly larger size at some point? Not real familiar with these.

 

Looked up the clutch adjustment for a 1974 model. This may help.

Idler looks to be original. I am wondering if the Kevlar is the problem??

Do you have the Belt guard on the engine pulley and the original engine pulley on the engine?They won't go into gear with out it especially with a nice fresh belt.5/8 x 83 is the correct sized belt for it.

 

Idler pulley is old Sears part # 6635H or New Sears part # 583772001 which is a standard 4" round Flat idler pulley.

Here's the belt that sears sells for the SS16 which is an OEM replacement belt but expensive.It is 5/8 x 83".

As mentioned above the belt guard is critical on these.

Kevlar is not an issue thats what you should run on these

 

I stock both items if needed, as well as a heavy Duty Idler with ball bearings

Adjustment of the brakes makes a difference on many tractors. In most cases, the clutch/brake pedal, when pushed, should loosen the belt and hold the driveline. Good Luck, Rick

I found my problem, no lining on the brake drum. How hard is that to replace?

Not too hard if you can get the band off easily! Not sure where to get the material right now, but you can glue it on with JB Weld.

Found the material at McMaster-Carr. Look to the right side of the page and scroll down to part #'s 6175K811 or high-strength 6224K341.

Well I fired up the SS 16 today and now it is shifting better. Maybe the belt just need to stretch a bit. Took it out and dropped both blades (snow plow and back blade) in loose soil and she just dug right in and went with no problems. Put the wheel weights on and ready to plow snow. Still need to reline the brake band but I am going to wait for better weather. Plus not enough daylight after work.
