LT 40 woodmizer drive belt
« on: November 03, 2017, 11:24:52 am »
I replaced the drive belt (from engine) it is the new double belt.  It seems too short I can't get enough adjustment to allow it to engage. As I stated in another post A few years ago I installed an upgrade that replaced the pulley on the engine with a larger one and replaced the blade wheel belts with ones that fit really tight, which all has been good until I had to replace the drive belt. It had two belts and they don't have any numbers that are readable. any ideas ?? I may try to figure out what belts it had and go back to them.

I would recommend you call Wood-Mizer and explain what you have for your drive pulley!

You might have to take some measurements for them.

You might have to go back to the original pulley or get a longer drive belt!
