Current belt is slipping as soon as it touches snow, it is only 1/2 '' wide and sits deep in pulley. Seems like with the 5 1/4 '' pto it has the standard 5/8 x 84 belts would be a little long but i think i will try 1 and if it dont work i can use it on the 2084 for a spare as i have only used it for an hour and new belt is looking well used and discolored..
The 1641 came with a 54 " deck . i know its not what came on it from factory ( just like the 450 blower that came with it lol ) Does anyone know what the 54 " deck came off and if it is a direct fit or with little mods ?
IF you have the CC 190-324-100 54" deck, it is listed as fitting models: 1340 1440 1535 1541 1641 1782 1860 1861 1862 1863 1864 1882 2082 2084 2086 2182 2284 with the proper mule drive. The 190-317-100 48" deck is similar in construction and mounting.
Of couse you can put it on there, just like you can put a 48" deck on a 70. But If you put those decks on those tractors, you will be lugging the motor in tall grass, overheat the motor and prolly blow it. The reason the 317 48" 324 54" decks will not fit on a 1340, 1541, or the 1860 is that the front axle is not swept forward like the later models Cyclops and the deck will end up hitting the front wheels
