212 Deck Drive Belt

At least I think that's wht this one is called.

The belt that runs from the PTO to the Deck. I need to know two things that I can't find the Info on ANYWHERE.

This is an '81 212 w/ Electric PTO and 42" deck.

1. What size belt
2. What's the routing of the belt.

Can anyone help with this? PLEASE!

Re: 212 Deck Drive Belt

Ok, so I found out that I need a 84.4" belt. But I also found out why I was having a hard time figuring out the belt routing. Apparently I'm missing a Tensioner V idler pulley that runs between the mower deck and the PTO.

Does anyone have a 212 that's running a mower deck that could take a picture of the set up for me? It would be much appreciated! Thanks

Brent

Did you try looking at the Deere site parts catalog?
http://jdpc.deere.com
You have to register, but then you can look up the diagrams.

Re: 212 Deck Drive Belt

Took a look at their diagrams on the site and it's helpful, but I'd still like to be able to see a photo of the part installed. It would be a bit more helpful than their Crayon drawings they call Technical drawing.
