It's been awhile, I remember taking the tractor side bearing loose. Thread in a couple of belts and wire a spare or two to the outside frame rail. I'll see if I can read anything on my spare.

Its a Goodyear, these are the numbers on it;
84570
4L570
A55F

I'm at the very top of the adjustment slots on the feedworks, I'd say it should be an inch longer.

Alright. I will take a look. My other two belts seem to have too much slack, this causes the carriage to suddenly stop.

They should have enough slack to freely slip until the idler from the hand stick engages either one. The spring should hold the stick and idlers in the neutral position where the carriage will stop.
