Check your bearings, rough spots on the pulleys, and alignment. With the belt off make sure all the pulleys turn freely by hand.

Also make sure you get a new belt from your local AGCO or Simplicity dealer. Parts store belts will not work on these mowers.

Neither will belts from TSC if they are not specific for that mower. The belt I bought for my craftsman mower only lasted a couple of weeks. I went to sears and got a OEM belt and have'nt had any problems.

An OEM belt is a belt from the "Original Equipment Manufacturer". Get your belts from AGCO or Simplicity. Simplicity built all of the Allis-Chalmers lawn tractors and their dealers can usually cross the model numbers over to Simplicity and get you the "right" belt.

No biggie, but Allis-Chalmers actually built the 300 and 400 series mowers in their plant in Lexington, South Carolina. They are an Allis-design and only the transmissions and rear-ends are made by Simplicity....

Allis also built the some of the 100-series and all the 200-series in the Lexington plant, but they were based on Simplicity designs and almost everything is interchangeable....

thanks everyone as you can tell I'm not too knowledgeable about this-or it's a"blonde" thing :):)

my husband has retired the tractor to the garage for now

my next door neighbor came over and finished the lawn

hubby did fix the old Lawn Boy push mower but we have over half an acre and that's a lot to mow

Today's Featured Article - Choosin, Mounting and Using a Bush Hog Type Mower - by Francis Robinson. Looking around at my new neighbors, most of whom are city raised and have recently acquired their first mini-farms of five to fifteen acres and also from reading questions ask at various discussion sites on the web it is frighteningly apparent that a great many guys (and a few gals) are learning by trial and error and mostly error how to use a very dangerous piece of farm equipment. It is also very apparent that these folks are getting a lot of very poor and often very dangerous advice fro ... [Read Article]
