Okay here we go. I realize this is not a tractor but after trying to put new belts on my Massey Harris 35 SP Comibine i have to say the whole damn thing was a design fault!!!
There is no way to just replace a belt. You have to practically disassemble whole sections of the combine to get to them. You can not get wrenches into the bolts to loosen tension pulleys, you have to take out the whole pulley shaft to get the belt on the pulley. You have to take 3 other belts off to get to the bad one. It has been two days of misery, lots of cussing and scratching of the head. Some old ones were finally put back on in hopes they survive during Massey Days.
It was not pretty, but it is back together again!!
Perfect example of the engineer failing the ask the mechanic. (Sorry John!!)
