Hopefully I am putting this thread in the right place. I recently purchased a Case 1537 skid loader. It is an older unit (1970"s) that has a 37hp Wisconsin gas engine. It runs (rich) and the hydro"s seem to work ok. The problem is that the drive belt is snapped and needs to be replaced. The owner gave me the original manual. To replace the belt you need to fabricate a 12" sheave spring compression tool. It doesn"t seem to difficult to make the tool but I would think that at some time these would have been available over the counter. Has anyone replaced a belt such as this and can give me a heads up on the tool and process? I appreciate any advice. B

I have replaced many of these belts and never used a compression tool, pry the pully open and put something that fits down in the pulley to hold it open, replace the belt and remove the block from the pully before starting. mEl

Thanks for the reply. How does the belt fit past the block? If you have time could you give me a quick step by step on this fix? I would appreciate it. B

Also, has anyone ever tried to cross reference these belts to a NAPA part# or a snowmobile style belt. Not sure they would be heavy duty enough but from the looks of the old belt very similar.

Make a small wood block that will fit clear down in the straight part of the pulley near the hub , then pry the pulley apart and put the block clear down in there. its out of the way completely there. Remove the coupler that joins the two shafts, the bracketing that holds the shaft and work the belt into position, reassemble all bracketing and the coupler. when everything is aligned and tightened pry the pulley and remove the wood block from the moveable sheave that will allow the belt to tighten. Save yourself and but a good quality OEM belt!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they're not a 5 min job to change. mEl
