Just got a 1947 B Allis Chalmer with a belly mower and during using it the belt came off and I don't know how to replace it. It's a long belt and the mower has 3 blades. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I had a Sun Master belly mower on my B until I took it off & sold it. The belt would jump off of it whenever I hit something mowing that I didn't want to be mowing, like old hog wire fencing, or other old equipment/stuuf hiding in the tall growth. It also jumped off when I tried to take down a multiflora rose that was nearly large enough to remove me from the tractor during the attempt. It was easy to replace, just looking at it for a minute or two and the position made itself clear. If I still had it I'd send a picture, but its long gone.

Depending on the type of mower, there should be a couple of idler pulleys just below and in front of the PTO pulley. I'd check first of all which direction the PTO pulley spins. Then, by looking under the deck and spinning (by hand) the blades, see which way the belt to the PTO needs to move. That will tell you which way the belt needs to go on the PTO pulley. The two idler pulleys keep the belt tensioned on the PTO pulley, so the belt needs to go under them. You may have to loosen the adjustment bolts on the idlers to allow the big belt to be replaced. After you replace the belt, re-tension the idlers.

Clear as mud?

Hope this doesn't steer you wrong! Good Luck!
