I have a 140 that I repowered with an 18hp Vanguard engine. The problem that I have is the belt from the deck to the front of the engine keeps rollng over and tearing up the belt. The pulley on the electric clutch sits 1" higher on the Vanguard than it did on the Kohler. I have not been able to find a John Deere belt that will work. The original belt was 86.3" long. I have been using a belt from Tractor Supply that measures 88" long. The mule drive was rebuilt when I put in the new engine, new pulleys, and new bushings on the shaft. I am at a loss as to what to try next.
