Replace primary belt

Need diagram to replace belt

    While cutting the grass with my 42" 19.5 HP Craftsman Lawn Tractor, suddenly the belts began to smoke. I immediately switched off the engine after disengaging the PTO lever. After trying to restart, however, it seems like the PTO is still engaged and the engine won't turn over at all....like it already has a load on it. Any suggestions?

here you go. (should be a diagram pictured below). If no picture, then the belt routes from the engine pulley on both sides (goes around the pulley) and goes strait back in between the two smaller pulleys, one an idler, the other spring loaded tensioner. The belt goes left with one leg, right with the other (from front or back) and engages both pulleys. Then goes to both blade pulleys and around them, then "meets" each other at the rear of the deck, running  strait from one blade pulley to the other.replace primary belt - image.tiff

Look under the the left foot rest,there is a belt installation diagram. It will show how to install the belt correctly. It is real simple to replace belt,but the belt must be installed on the pulleys,correctly or it will fail,every time. Sincerely,Brad Locke

I'm attempting to replace the primary belt on a John Deere x500 w/ 54'' deck. Is there a pully adjustment or do I just ''force'' the belt onto the pulleys?


There is an idler pulley that puts tension on the belt. You unhook the spring from the idler arm, put the new belt on (it will be loose, not tight) then hook the spring back onto the idler by pulling hard on the spring with a pair of visegrip or channellock pliers. Here's a parts diagram. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.
