GT-16 PTO belt replacement

Picked up a few new toys recently that need some attention, number one being replacing the PTO belts on a GT-16 that shredded themselves on the initial mow. I noticed that one belt was really bad when playing with the PTO & switch, but I thought that it would have enough left in it to finish the job, well it didn't.

Before I jump into this project, I just wanted to check for any tips or pointers to make this job easier. I remember changing the PTO belts was a beastly job on my old S-14.

Re: GT-16 PTO belt replacement

Simple! I disconnect the tensioner spring on the stud side, install the belts and use a drum brake spring installer to put the spring back in place. Takes all of 5 minutes.
