I can't offer help for installing the belt but wanted to welcome you to QCA :)
I am sorry can't help with the belt issue but if it works anything like a simple engine you can probably find out how on You tube. I hope you find out. Good Luck!

Welcome to the group Billie.
I know how to do it but I can't explain it...LOL> Hopefully the tutorial will help. I would love to see a pic of your machine. I now have 3 treadle machines. I absolutely love them.
I am no help but good luck. You might try Youtube.
Way back before electric they made sewing machines with a "treadle" that you operate with foot power by rocking the treadle forward. The treadle is connected to a wheel that is connected to the sewing machine wheel with a belt so that the needle moves up and down.
we went to a big custom clothing place in vietnam in an out door covered market. all the women were using treadle machines, and i didn't recognize any of the names on the machines
