Went to replace drive belt and the one I bought is way small.  The belt I bought is 42" OC and one I took off is 48" OC.  Looking at the drive pulley on transmission it does not look original, no paint.  It's 10" in diameter, I'm thinking someone changed it to slow tractor down, it doesn't go very fast even in third gear.  If someone could provide diameter of correct size it would be appreciated.  If I'm going in the wrong direction, feel free to turn me in the right one.

 

thanks

That reduced drive was an option. I had gotten one for the 2210 I had in 1968 to slow it down some for tilling.

I have what i belive is a reduced drive pulley, but im not sure. It has triangles cut in it. Is there a way of knowing?

I haven't seen that tractor since 1978 so I don't remember too much about it today.

10in. pulley is to slow tractor for tilling. Standard for mowing should be a 6in or maybe a 7in. If I recall correctly the 42in belt fits a 6in pulley. But I may be mistaken.

   pretty sure stock is 6" od, I run 7" on mine to slow it down just a touch.  makes it a little more user friendly.

Yeah, stock is 6" (42" belt).  The Low Speed kits were offered in 10" (for 7-9hp tractors, 49" belt) and 8" (for 10-12hp tractors, 45" belt).
