SOURCE: MTD Lawn Tractor: Constantly shredding deck belt...

I have the exact same model MTD tractor with same problem. It began when the bolt that extends through the idler arm assembly broke and subsequently damaged the pulley. Upon examination of the broken bolt, I found that the threaded end that extends below the deck is significantly smaller that the rest of the bolt. I got a larger bolt with the same size threads, bored out the hole through the deck and it made the whole idler assembly much stronger. the deck still has some vibration and some unusual belt harmonics, but it appears to be working. Compared to most other tractors of this size, this deck is very complicated.

SOURCE: CRAFTSMAN Tractor Model%23 917257643 adjust idler

First things first! Before you installed the new belt, did you check the blades and idler pulleys to see if they all turned freely with no resistance while the belt was off and the blade brakes released? Release the blade brakes by engaging the handle with the engine off!
When you installed the new belt, did you put the back side of the belt against the flat pulleys and the inside of the belt in the V-pulleys? Did you double check to make sure you didn't inadvertently miss a belt guide getting the belt on the outside of it instead of underneath it. Did you look at the picture in your owners manual to make sure you had it routed correctly and make sure it is not rubbing against anything when you have the blade lever engaged? CHECK THIS WITH THE ENGINE OFF If you don't have your owners manual, look under the foot boards on the tractor, many of the Sears tractors have the routing diagrams there. If it is not there you can go to searspartsdirect.com , enter model number 917.257644 (NOTE the number difference) and look at the picture of the deck, it shows what the belt should look like when it is installed. You can also download an owners manual there. As best as I can remember, there is no adjustment for the idler pulleys.

SOURCE: 609 yard machine tractor idler pulley spring broke

Here's a diagram, not a great copy, but it may help:

The spring hooks to the idler arm on the opposite end from where the pulley is mounted. The other end of the spring looks like it hooks to a raised tab on the deck, straight behind the left mower spindle. Hope this helps you, please rate my solution if so, thanks!

How to install a new blade for my 10 inch electric chainsaw - model 358-34010


Loosen the chain adjuster and remove the bar bolts. Remove the side cover. Remove the existing chain. Thread the new chain over the sprocket making sure the drive cogs are engaging the sprocket correctly, then thread it over the end of the bar ensuring the drive cogs are inserted correctly in the bar groove. Install the bar/chain onto the bolts aligned with the chain adjustment pin and install the cover. Snug the bolts and tighten the chain with the guide bar tip elevated. Once you are satisfied with the chain tension, tighten the bar bolts and....... VOILA.... you are done. Head for that pesky neighbors tree that drops leaves in your yard.....

Of course, make sure the chain orientation is correct !!!! I have seen them installed backwards on the shelf in the big box stores....

Are there any left hand threads on the Ariens ST824 snowblower model 924050


As far as I know there is none on the Tecumseh engine. For the rest of the blower there shouldn't be any but there could always be some.

Manufactures tend avoid left hand threads as much as possible.

Chain ****


Scott, this sounds like maybe the derailler is not taking up the slack in the chain. You might not be threading the chain through the derailer correctly, or the spring in the derailer is not working. Maybe if you could post a picture of the folded chain and a picture of how the chain is threaded through the derailer I could help you further

Bobbine keeps getting knotted up, I have replaced it with a new bobbin and it keeps happening.


Hi my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. If the bobbin is knotting up, you need to loosen the tension on the bobbin and tighten up a little on the thread, you kinda have to play around with it a little to get the feel of it. Say may less than a half a turn, until you get it to where you want it. Then there will be a question about the thread breaking, sometimes it will be old outdated four year old thread. Thanks for choosing FixYa...John

Trouble with my Huskylock 680D overlocker Tensions


You need to re-thread the serger.

Refer to the manual or open the front of the serger to see if the threading diagram is there.

With most sergers, you begin with raising the presser foot, then set the tensions to zero.

Begin the threading with the upper looper (curved looper), then the lower looper and the needles last.

Pull the thread under the presser foot and to the left side of the serger.

Set the tensions back to normal 4 - 5 usually.

Lower the presser foot and hold onto the threas tails as you stitch a chain. If the chain of the four threads is ok, you are ready to serge fabric.
