Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I have the engine pulley belt for mt Craftsman 917.275760 mower. It is too hard to stretch over the upper and lower engine pulley. If I unbolt the pulley to slide it on will this mess anything up/
Double... nay, tripple check that you bought the right belt. There are a zillion belt sizes and different brand may mean a different fit for the same numerical size. If you purchased a serpentine belt thats the same size as a regular belt, it might not fit your application... just because it is serpentine. Also, The department stores sell a specific set of brands of mower parts. Not every store will have every ajor brand part.
If you definately have the right belt, you might be able to find a mechanism for providing slack to our belt for installation, like a clutch pulley on a spring. By forcing the clutch pulley "in" you might get enough slack. Installation of snug belts is certainly an art. I find that prying the belt into the groove of the pulley while its turning makes it easier.
