I have an early 60s David Bradley suburban round hood (don't know exactly, the tag is too worn). Does anyone know the dimensions of the small belt tensioner pulley that bolts to the frame? Mine is missing and I am trying to find a replacement. Also I need belt sizes, everywhere I look people say different sizes within a few inches. Thanks.

I can look at my notes and tractor, I do remember what the manual said was not what I used for belt sizes and I have all the correct pullies and spacers, it's a fun and good looking tractor but it always seems like the sun moon and stars need to be aligned to keep it adjusted properly

I had a '65 and sold it last year. That 3 belt system was tough to work with but after getting all the belts right it did work. I had trouble with one of the belts from PIX being manufactured smaller than its advertised dimensions. I switched to gates belts at NAPA and that did the trick. I gave all the paperwork to the fella I sold the tractor to so I'm afraid I don't have anything handy for sizes.
