Hello ALL,

I'm new to this forum, but NOT new to wheel horse as I'm now using my fathers B100 (I believe) Automatic Wheel Horse. Man, they REALLY DON"T make them like they used to.

Anyway, the mower deck belt keeps getting chewed up about every year or so and I'm not sure why. From what I researched it takes an 1/2" wide by 88" long V belt. My father, from what I could tell, was using Gates 6888 belts or equivalent. I'm a little unsure as to how tight the belt should be and whether or not the pulleys on the front of the tractor are to be angled, or did the shaft get bent at some point (I'll try to post a picture of it).

The second issue is that I believe either the starter/generator relay is getting bad or the electrical rectifier/converter is going bad. I just purchase a new battery for it and every so often I'll shut off the mower after a half hour or so of use and the battery is drained. Haven't really busted my rear to trouble shoot this but I'm assuming its either the relay or the rectifier/converter?

Any help troubleshooting either or both of the aforementioned would be GREATLY appreciated.

THANKS!
