please dont waste ye money on that "tool"...all ya need is a zip-tie.

zip the belt, ribs in, to the large pulley...rotate till tense and put belt on motor pulley, as high up as you can get it on the shaft. begin slowly running the belt on the large pulley by rotating by hand.

the belt will try to come down off the motor pulley, but remain vigilent and rotate till the belt is completely on. it WILL stretch enuff to go on.

gird up yer loins, centurion!

You left some numbers off your model number-- there are two different drive belts depending on what the rest of the model number is.
