Craftsman 42 in Deck Lawn Tractor jerks/bucks when in forward during turns. Is there an adjustment or do I need a new belt?


Sounds like to me you need a new belt! The belt is automatically tensioned by a spring on most mowers by MTD, the major mfr for most mowers including craftsman.

Craftsman 19.5hp 42 drive belt shredded


most likely the belt was put on the wrong side of the belt retainer clips on one of the two pullys. I've done the same thing more than once. Make sure on next belt there are no sharp edges touching anywhere and while engaged or not.

Having trouble replacing a 42 craftsman riding mower belt...help Ithe old one broke off but the new one it on too tight...the replacement one is the right lenght help please


do you remember the routing of the belt? there should be a diagram on the deck somewhere - best thing to do is rout the belt while the deck is lowered, leaving the loop at the front to put around drive pully on bottom of engine. once that is all hooked up, there are deck adjusters on either side of the deck - that you can adjust to relieve some of the tension on the belt - turn the adjusters clockwise to tighten, counterclockwise to loosen - let me know if this helps or if u need more info - i have a 10 year old 42" deck tractor out in my barn and if need be, tomorrow i will walk u through - online how to adjust the deck
