Its a 1980's rally mower unsure who actually made it as it seems 2 companys made it...

Look up Fearlesses video on YouTube, he tells a trick on how to size your belt without knowing the length.

I actually just try belts at Ace. Just have my tractor with me.

Can you install a fixed idler pulley in there somewhere to take up the extra slack?

Yeah that what doc said would be the easiest, or you could make it spring loaded.

I would not suggest a spring loaded pulley in this case. With the belt clutch being what it is, a spring loaded idler designed to take up belt slack will only complicate things. You will push the clutch pedal to slack the belt, and the spring loaded idler will try to take up that slack! No good. Stick with what Richie said- a fixed pulley is what's called for here.

Given that the belt size is hit-and-miss, that's probably the best idea. Mount the pulley on an arm with a swivel, and a threaded rod or bolt to adjust it. Then you can dial in the amount of slack it takes up, and get it right. Excellent idea.

Yeah now I am rethinking that the pully on the threaded rod would work best.
