Hi,

My old belt says 725026 and I bought a replacement 725026. The replacement doesn't say Indmar so I'm not sure its genuine Indmar or what, but in any case I cannot get the belt on-its just too tight. Then, I do some research and find that the 725029 is the belt if you have a shouldered pulley, and 725026 is for non-shouldered. I'm not exactly sure what a shouldered is or what pulley it is referring to, so I just can't figure out if I have the right belt or what the problem is. All pulleys except for the tensioner have grooves on them-if that is what shouldered means.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Changing the belt today on my '99 LTR and it has the 725026. However, not sure about shouldered vs non. If you have a picture I could compare it to mine.

Believe it or not there are actually 3 different belts for an LTR, finding the right one for your boat can be a bit of a challenge. The belts in our system are

725026-Belt, LTR ORIGINAL LONG
725029-BELT, LTR SHORT UPDATE
725039-BELT, LTR SHORT SHORT

Not sure from your post if you have released the tensioner property to allow the belt slip on. I have a 99 LT-1 but I was not able to figure out how to release the tensioner to slip on the new belt. Below is a reply I received from one of the guys on this site. Not sure again if this helps or not. It is normal that all pulleys have groves but none on the tensioner.

You put a wrench on the tensioner pulley bolt(the one that holds the wheel on) and turn it clockwise like you are trying to tighten the bolt more. The tensioner wheel arm will then move down so you can slide the belt on then you release the tension by releasing pressure on the wrench.
