Original belt shortened 2" and laced up. Yet to try.
For practice I laced up the fire hose anyway.
I will let you all know how they go.
Thanks for all the help

That is almost exactly how they used to relace the main drive belts on old ground drive harvesters as well as other equipment back in the day, if it's done correctly it should be fine !

Oldstuff's statement about the fire hose, "A hose won't work if used as is. Think of it as two belts one over the other. The inside layer runs on the pulleys while the outer runs on the top of the other one. They will want to rotate at different rates due to the diameter differences and will fight each other consuming a ton of horsepower" left me with a question. What would happen if the hose was laced as a Mobius Loop so that the outside and inside were the same side?
