I picked this tractor up for free with snowblower and deck. It was outside for years but I got it running and finally got the snowblower installed.
It was all in pieces in a box,,lift handle and a bunch of brackets. It took me hours to figure out how this snowblower mounted and how the belt routing is.
But the belt for the deck is too short for the snowblower. I think I need a 82" belt for this 32" snowblower Does anyone know for sure??? What size belt does this take for snowblower?
I also have the cutest little simplicity snow blade. But it dont go to this tractor?? Ill try to get some pictures tomorrow.

The info is not inside the hood. This is a 1960's to 70's Yeoman 616. pull start rider. There is allot of information on the web but I cannot find the belt size for this snowblower. I realize more information and pictures would help.

Here are possible belt lengths for the small Simplicity riding mowers, depending on what snow blower you have. If you can find the mfg tag on the blower, you're home free. It looks like the blower that came as a 616 Serf accessory is the 1690034 model.

They made a mid-mount grader blade for the 616. It's possible that is what you have - Photos?

This info came from the SimpleTrACtors website, that has lots of Simplicity stuff and knowledgeable folks.

Oops, I meant 616 Yeoman. The information is still correct.

It took a 79" belt from me trying many different sizes and I see now the information was posted here,,but I didnt see it until now.
I also have a simplicity snow blade(pictured) that I do not know what it belongs to.
And does anyone know how to wrap the rope for the snowblower deflector chute?? A handle turns and wraps the rope up turning the chute in different directions. I cant get it to wrap correctly so the chute moves all the way inn each direction.

I don't think the rope is OEM...I believe it was originally a cable...but if it is not going all the way, the range of travel is being restricted by the length of the rope......it has to be longer to pay out more and causes the chute to turn as you manually turn the handle...the more rope...the more it can turn

You need more wraps on the control rod. Here is a pic of my blower - similar but works the same, and instruction sheet for the setup.

I'm guessing your snow blade is from an old walk-behind tractor

Something like this...
Although I am not sure what the handle is for, since the walk behind blade would be solid mounted and lifted by tilting the tractor's handlebars. My dad had a two-wheeled trailer for his walk behind that you could sit on to drive. In that case, the handle might be used as a foot-operated lift??
