If the pulleys are pot metal they are probably original. you can replace them with machined steel but I would not use the link belt. The belt is a POS, that is unless you like vibration. My feeling on the belts is they are good as a back up and in an emergency until you can find a good v-belt. I am not familiar with the 34-440, but I am assuming it is a contractors style saw, so the 3450 Dayton is probably a suitable replacement. If you had trouble cutting OSB, I would look at the blade first, rip fence being parallel to the miter slots next. As for the bearings, replace them with the same number that is currently there. I would NOT use a generic bearing.
