How do they install on to the deck.If they are splined with a bolt holding them then remove the bolt.Sometimes the housing bolts to the frame of the deck with 3 or 4 bolts.Clean the deck and area to be worked on real good and see what kind of hardware is holding it to the deck.Hope this helps.

    Hi Ricky. The three replacement pulleys I purchased show that they slide over the shaft and are held on by the large washer under a nut with a zurick fitting at the top. The shaft has like 6 teeth and the pulleys have the same shape to slide over the sahft and stay in position. I sprayed it with PB blaster and waited a couple days I removed the nut with the zurick fitting at the top and the large washer and attempted to use a wheel puller but this only bent the old worn pulley. They have no set screews or pins in these pulleys so they apperently only slide over the shafts and the gears or teeth in the shaft and pulleys keep them in position. I may try heating up the old pulley and try again. I thought maybe someone has experience with them.

    I have even had to taKE A TORCH AND CUT THE PULLY BUT not completly throughh and then they will usually come off.They are tough .I aint no expert and I know less than most but I hope this helps.Thee safest way is to use a hand grinder to cut as you are less prone to cut your shaft and even if you mdo it dont affect the pulley/shaft fit.Sometimes there mis a keyway instead of splines.Thanks

SOURCE: i need to replace a mower deck belt on my exmark

There will be one or two "idler pulleys" besides the spindles that turn the blades. Usually one idler pulley is mounted on a plate that swivels, pulled by a strong spring, to put tension on the belt. The other idler pulley is usually fixed in place. Use strong pliers (vise-grips or channellock) to pull the spring out of its notch at one end, releasing the tension. Then the belt can be threaded. Now you have to restore tension by by pulling on the spring and anchoring it on that swivel plate again.

SOURCE: need to remove pulley from spindle to replace

If you do not the facilities to use an impact wrench, you will need to find to hold the pulley and you a breaker bar with a socket on it to get the pulley nut loose. I would use either"PB Blaster or Deep Creep" penetrating oil and spray it on the nut before you try to take it apart.
Or you may find a professional shop, take the deck to them and may may take the pulley off for a small fee.

SOURCE: i cant replace the deck belt on my husqvarna ct151 lawn mower

The manual shows how the belts are put on, if you do not have one they may be purchased through dealers or small engine repair shops or online. On mine there is also a little diagram on the top of the mower deck. Another way to check is find an identical one that is functional and look at its belt. There are only so many ways it could fit and these are all made by just one or two manufacturers so there is not much variance.

I believe that tensioner pully has to be loosend up and moved.
Here are the instructions for this.
  • Place the deck in the lowest position using the hydraulic piston (if applicable) or the manual cutting-height adjuster.

  • 2

    Remove the deck-to-PTO belt from the PTO by releasing tension on the idler-arm pulley. This is a spring-loaded handle that turns in only one direction by hand and relieves the tension on the belt. Slip the deck-to-PTO belt off the PTO pulley after the tension is relieved.

  • 3

    Remove the deck from underneath the mower or tractor.

  • 4

    Locate any belt stops and loosen them with the ratchet wrench and proper socket. Belt stops are located on the deck and are the small metal brackets that guide and secure the belt to the pulleys so it will not jump off when under heavy use, or stretch from normal wear.

  • 5

    Remove any pulley covers by removing the retaining screws using the ratchet wrench and a socket.

  • 6

    Loosen the idler-pulley retaining bolt (located on the underside of the mower deck) to replace the deck-to-PTO belt. Removing the bolt is not necessary. Loosen the pulley enough to wiggle the belt free from the pulley and remove and replace the belt.

  • 7

    Remove any arbor covers (if applicable) that conceal the arbor pulleys by removing the retaining screws with the ratchet wrench and a socket to replace the mower arbor belt.

  • 8

    Locate the tensioner pulley on the mower arbor belt to replace it. Loosen the tensioner pulley bolt enough to slide it and release tension from the belt. Remove the belt from the arbor pulleys and replace it.

  • 9

    Slide the tensioner pulley back leaving about 1/2-inch of play in the belt and tighten the bolt. Reverse the procedure to put the rest of the mower deck back together and reinstall on the mower or tractor.

    How do I put a genuine factory parts deck drive belt O.E. 954-04062/754-04062 on 38"Bolen's lawn tractor model#13AM762F765


    To start with, the easiest way is to remove the mowing deck from the tractor. It will really be tough if you don't or can't. You may need an owners manual to guide you through all the steps.
    1. Remove the cutting deck from the tractor 2. Work the old belt off (if not broken) the mandrel pulleys and idler pulleys 3. Pull the belt away to reinstall a new one 1. Work the new belt around both the mandrel pulleys 2. Make sure the belt is in all the pulley grooves and inside all the belt guides 3. Now you have to reinstall the mowing deck. Here are some diagrams that should help you.

    Mower deck belt pulley gone


    There is what they call the spindle assembly. Some times if the bearing is not lubed enough or just plain old it will sieze up . When this happens the pulley shears off of the rod it spins on. The deck must be removed and you can buy a new spindle assembly. In most cases you need your old pully however or you will need a new one of those as well. The other possible solution could be the bolt came loos and it simply fell off . In that case you need a new pulley , bolt to hold it on , and a washer in the middle. Good Luck I just had this same problem on a mower I purchased to fix up. It cuts great now.

    The belt dry rotted and flew off without me being able to remove it myself, now I need to know how to install the new drive belt.


    To install the drive belt you will have to remove the drive belt first.
    Follow the procedure: ---
    Park the tractor on a level surface. Set the parking brake and remove the key from the ignition. Study the belt replacement guide decal located underneath the left foot board for proper belt routing instructions.
    Remove the mowing deck by first moving the attachment clutch lever to the disengaged position (toward you). Move the attachment lift lever all the way forward to lower the mower housing to its down position.
    Crawl beneath the tractor and roll the drive belt off engine pulley (it hangs directly beneath the engine). Remove small retainer clip that holds the clutch spring to the pulley bolt located at the center of the mowing deck. Remove the large retainer springs (two of them), then slide the belt collar away from the mower housing and off the housing bracket.
    Disconnect the anti-sway bar rods from the chassis brackets by removing the retaining cotter pins. Disconnect front links from the mower deck by removing retaining cotter pins. Disconnect the suspension arms from the rear mower deck brackets by removing the two cotter pins.
    Move the attachment lift lever all the way to the forward position to raise the mower suspension arms to the full up position. Slide the mower deck out from beneath the tractor.
    Crawl beneath the tractor and roll the drive belt off of the stationary idler pulley and the clutching idler pulley. They are both located immediately adjacent to the engine pulley. Be sure the belt is already away from the engine pulley, as well.
    Push the drive belt slack toward the rear of tractor. Remove the drive belt from the Trans axle pulley by taking it over the trans axle pulley while compressing the movable belt keepers surrounding it. Remove the old belt from the tractor by pushing it clear of the center span keeper (located beneath the Trans axle pulley).
    Install a new drive belt by following the reverse of the instructions for removal. Test the tractor and mower for normal operation.
     Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    How too replace the blade drive belt on a murray lawn mower


    Its actually really easy. First, determine the size of your mower deck. Is it 30" 42" 54" etc. Then, go to a home improvement store like Lowes or The Home Depot (or an online retailer.) Search for a replacement belt for your deck size. Removing the old one is easy. Pry back the retainers on the engine pulley and slip the belt off of the pulley. This should make it very easy to pull off the mower deck. Installation is the opposite of removal. Make sure you note the belt arrangement for proper installation. Good luck!

    Disengaging blades when mowing completed


    the cam plate that the tensioner pulley is mounted on that rotates back around to tighten the belt as the cable or rod is engaged is likely rusted and worn, there is a bushing in this pivot that can be removed and cleaned fairly easily with a abrasive wheel or pad and lubricated upon reassembly.

    I have a Toro LX466 riding mower. The drive belt


    How to replace the drive belt on a Toro LX466 Lawn Tractor

    1. Jack up the front of the mower-place a couple of blocks under the front wheels (retaining wall blocks from your flower bed work great). Block the back wheels so the mower won't roll off the front blocks.

    1. Remove the battery and battery compartment from under the seat. You can now see the cooling fan blade under the seat. The belt runs from the pulley directly under the fan to the front of the tractor.

    2. Lower the mower deck to its lowest position. Remove the deck hanger rod from the slots in the front of the mower deck.

    3. Remove the metal rod guard below the engine pulley. It's held in place on one side with a bolt, and the other side with a cotter pin.

    4. Take a large pair of channel lock pliers (about 18 in long work great) and clamp them down directly on the engine pulley, but not so tightly you distort the pulley.

    5. Remove the bolt from the pulley. It's a right-handed bolt, so turn it counter-clockwise to remove.

    6. Slide the pulley down the shaft until you can work the belt off. If the belt is too tight, then remove the spring from the idler pulley under the tractor. It's hooked on a bolt near the side of the tractor. You can remove it by grabbing the end of the spring with a pair of needle-nose vise-grips and slipping the end off the bolt. Then remove the old belt from the tractor.

    7. Take a new belt (preferably Kevlar) and start at the back of the tractor (with the pulley under the cooling fan) and thread it through to the front of the tractor. The flat side of the belt rests against the idler pulley with the flat sides.

    8. Work the belt over the engine pulley and slide it back on the shaft. Tighten the bolt on the engine pulley hand tight. Then check the belt to make sure it hasn't slipped out of the groove on the cooling fan pulley.

    9. Clamp the engine pulley with the channel lock pliers and tighten the bolt.

    10. Make sure the belt is routed correctly on the idler pulleys. If you had to remove the spring on the idler pulley, replace it. You can do this by grabbing it with the needle-nose vise-grips and placing it on the bolt-make sure it's above the washer. Then remove the vise-grips and gently pry it over with a small screwdriver until it slips into place.

    11. Replace the metal guard below the engine pulley. Hook the mower deck back onto the deck hanger. Replace the battery compartment and battery. Unblock the mower.

    Need to replace drive belt.Never replaced. 42' Craftsman riding lawn mower. How difficult is this. How do you access rear drive pully


    Take a look at how the belt is installed. Then you will have to remove the mower deck and belt from the pulley on the engine. There is probably something by the engine pulley that you will have to remove so the belt will come off. It might be a shoulder bold or a rod with a bolt holding it on. Same with the rear pulley. Then you just have to put the belt on one pulley and watch your fingers so you don't pinch them and turn the other pulley and the belt should go on. reinstall any bolts you removed and install the deck.

    Hi. The belt must be trying to move a pulley that is either frozen, partially frozen or excessively loose. remove the belt and check the action of each pulley. If you have a frozen one, use some WD-40 to unfreeze it and if you have an excessively loose one replace the entire pulley assembly as it is worn out.
