Yours ;looks to be a bit different than mine as it used a different belt tensioning affair.
Mine looks like this.
Note the springs and double "tee" bar

Was there early models and later year models that differ? So I assume Mackinaw is still in business

Do parts still fit? Or are they changed ip

Amerind Mackissic is still in business now known as MacKissic:

Link: MacKissic - Landscaping Equipment Made in the USA

Not much has changed And many parts are available if not still current.

Steve, do you know you can edit posts for a few minutes if you want to? Like when you have another thought on the same topic a moment later.

You guys with your 59Ms did inspire me to get my Mighty Mac running better. The 5 horse B&S only ran just above idle when I brought it home. I purged the old fuel, flushed the tank, fished out the part from an old gas cap vent, and it ran much better. So much better that the hammer mill stopped turning. This thing is rusty, so I suspect bearings or centrifugal clutch overheating, and not behaving nicely.
