It should work and fit fine. Is the belt routed correctly?

AS best I can tell the belt is routed correctly and I have the right size belt. Ive spent alot of time trying to puzzle this out. Belt is a 5/8 by 69 is this correct?

Yep, physically they are the exact same sized machines with the same distances from PTO to any attachments.

If you are standing on the right side looking at the sides of the idler pulleys that idler assembly must be rotated clockwise against the spring pressure a long ways to get the belt on. I use a bar or piece of wood to pry it around far enough to slip the belt on the flat idler last.
