dad has had this since new. the drive belt has been replaced many years ago and is not right size as the part was no longer available according to part store. the belt used now is to short, no adjustment can be made an clutch is inop. when moved to drive it takes of. dad is disabled and im now the operator and its to dangerous for my liking, ive battled with it the last few years but enough is enough. figured with the internet, the oem# or lengths would be an easy search, but its proving difficult.

Belts

Here's a suggestion if you don't locate the correct belt: link belt. I've been using one on my wood jointer and some other power tools for a few years now with very good success. By adding or removing links you can them pretty much any size needed, though I've not tried one on a blower yet.
Be aware though, if you have any pot metal pulleys, they don't take too kindly to link belts.

This is what I'm talking about:
Search results for: 'link belt'
They are available in different widths so insure you get the right one if you try it.

Cool, I never heard of those before.
I wonder how they would work on a blower or old lawnmower.

What do you do, just take out links till you get your size?
That one says the total length is 5'. Just take a piece out and you hook it to the next link?

That is 5', could you make 2, 2 1/2' belts out of the one?
