Fan belt replacement

Postby Lt.Mike » Wed Jul 04, 2018 10:23 am

Had to work my A during the last couple of days during this heat wave and the old gal ran hot.
I gave it cool down periods and got some work done. Now I’m focusing on what the tractor needs. Plugs, plug wires, cap and rotor for the mag are needed. I’m attending to a leaking valve cover gasket but I’m pretty sure the fan belt was the culprit for it running hot. Short of being snapped it was as bad as it could be. It was spongy soft with chunks missing and stretched to where it flopped on the pulley.
Surprised with myself for letting it get that bad.
This doesn’t loosen and replace as easy as with a truck. Do I have to unbolt the pulley assembly and remove half the tin or is there an easy way?
Anyone got any tips for removal / installation of the new belt?
