I have to agree with Kyle, doesn't appear to be the correct belt. Is it a John Deere belt or another brand? What part number for the belt did you use?

There are some belts that I haven't been happy with when crossed over to after market belts. I mean I know you haven't had that belt on long.
Yea I may have started it 2 or 3 times since I put that one on. Now it does seem to start easier when it's warm out. If it's cold I believe the belt gets to stiff thus the slipping.

Was this belt the cross over number for the John Deere part number I have listed above? Why don't you just order the correct belt from Deere? They can't be that expensive, can they?

So the original trip to Pikeville for the cross over belt = $5.00
Lost time for the tractor being out of service = $10.00
Time spent in frustration and needing advice = $15.00
Making the second trip to Pikeville for the correct belt = $5.00

The cost for the correct "John Deere" belt = Priceless!!!!

Hahahahaha that's great! However if I didn't have the need for advice I wouldn't have started this whole thread for us to debate over. And I work about 1 mile from Pikeville so it's not outta my way and the 5$ sounds better then 20$ so I'll try another 5$ one and if it doesn't fix the problem I'll splurge for the 20$ one.
