I have a big ten and am having trouble figuring out how to hook up the deck belt and chain. It is hydraulic lift and seems to be all complete. The pulley on the deck is horizontal and the one on the tractor is vertical. By looking at it it doesn't seem as it will work. Does anyone know what size the belt is also? A thousand thank yous

Go to simpletractors.com. AC & Simplicity (also built for private label). Site is full of info. And yes the belt twists, if twisted wrong, the blades run backwards. You should be able to see where the belt rubbed on the deck suspension--a round tube. I don"t remember the size, would have to dig out my old manuals, sorry. I can tell you tho' that the 2 belts (1 clutch, 1 deck) need to match total length. If 1 is not right it affects the other. The idler swings. I've used 'A' belts, but if you use a oem and a 'A' you'll fight keeping the clutch adjusted. Had the best luck with either 2 'A' or two oem. I"ll try to find the 'A' #'s I wrote down. Hope I didn"t just confuse you, being long winded.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
