My understanding is there is a belt pulley that bolts to the front pto on my tractor to drive my 542 Pto. Well having thought I had this pulley when I got my 318 as it came with an extra pulley the owner said was that pulley for that front PTO.Well that ain't it.Now I know they are not available any longer but having a friend with a CNC machine I think I can have some made if I get the correct measurements Anyone have them? Any help would be much appreciated. Mike

Mike, The outside dimension of the outside of the pulley is 5 1/2 inches:


The center to center of the hoses are 4 3/8 inches:


The belt width is your standard 1/2 inch and the piece below the belt grove is 1 inch:


Hope this helps.


Mike they can still be found, it just takes a while, but they do surface now and then.

Hi Mike, yes I still have my PTO, I just got the belt and pulley about a month ago. About a one year search for the pulley on and off. I finally found a NOS (my dealer did anyway) out of Wis. I believe.

My Holidays were good thank you, Hope your was the same.

I have a 199X GT275 with the original tire on one front side and a different tread design on the other. The tire size is 16 6.5-8. I use the tractor for mowing primarily, hauling stuff in a cart and snow blowing.
Due to some especially steep areas I have two rear wheel mounted weights always installed. For mowing I add 3 42lbs suitcase weights to the rear. For snow blowing I add all 5 suitcase weights and chains.

I have noticed this year, while mowing, even on dry grass, that the front tires tend to slip sideways when I am trying to make turns especially when going uphill and then turning. I started using the snowblower about 3 years ago and with the snowblower in the down position steering has never been great.

I guess it would be nice if I could through front wheel weights on...but I am thinking that it might be time to replace the tires.

I am looking for suggestions, experience and pros/cons of brand/model tires.

Thanks in advance, Art
