It came with new belts, but your PTO is different than my manual one. Call up SEW and sak
Yes it came wit a new belt but i do not mow with it yet, I plow snow, pull a lawn packer and haul fire wood from my woods...Oh and of course joy ride...I did measure the distances on the onan pto and this one lines right up with it.

I routed the throttle cable to the other side of the engine giving it a smoother curve on the cable(starter side) it works 80% easier but still has some drag/resistance on the controlling of the throttle...I am thinking that the Cable that comes with the kit is just CHEAP...

I also had problems with the throttle cable. I ended up using the original control lever and routing the cable sort of behind the oil filter. For the choke cable I kept the original one but it had to be shortened it a little bit and lubricated.

Henry.
