Question about Craftsman Garden
Craftsman 42 inch riding mower 8 years old. This was a problem since new. I only wish I would have returned this lemon right away. The drive belt jumps out of the rear drive pulley and gets jambed up underneath the pulley. I have to remove the bagger and then take off the rear plate to get at the belt. I end up cutting the belt off and replacaing it with a new one. This happens every season. The Sears tech who came out the first time said they had problems with the drive belt jumping off the rear pulley. I wish I could fix this.
Hi, this is a easy solution. on your drive pulley, there should be three belt keepers to keep the belt from coming off. ( belt keeper is a 1/4" dia. rod that goes over the pulley)

If the bearings and pulleys are in good shape, alignment should be checked. Though with alignment problems you ran into bearing and even pulley problems also.
