Belt replacement on Craftsman LT 1036

This Craftsman LT 1036 threw both belts. I've got new belts but can't figur out how to relcae the trany belt. It looks like one of the trany braces needs to be insdie the belt loop so as not to rub the belt, but that doesn't make sense to me. I can't find a manual or any diagram on how they should go. Any ideas?

Hey jim the drive belt connects to the fron of the machine Just above the PTO clutch. connected to the vertical crank on the engine. It slips through a series of pullies to the back side od the mower. One pully will be on a tention spring. that is your golden ticket to getting the tention you need.

Looking at the pullys. for routing your new belt. V pullies for the inside portion of the belt and flat pullies for the outside.

You can usualyl take the chassis and pedals off as needed. the pebals have pins holding them on.
the seat has a safty switch that gets unplugged.

There are bolts hidden under the foot map as well which snaps up and down careful with these as that mat will never be the same if you break the clips.

THe back of the mower near and above the gastank you will see a pull thats ontop of a hydrostatic pump thats the last pully.

I have done these before without removing the body. However its not easy and you had better be limber.

Ohh and of course remove any decking under the mower for mowing lawns. =) i hhope this helps if i see a diagram i will try to link you. GL buddy -Jeff in alaska

Go to... http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action Enter the model number that is under the seat. If it's a lawn tractor, it will start with 917. That will get you to all the diagrams of the mower.

Look under the "running boards" Sears(AYP) sometimes put them under there. If not, go to www3.sears.com, type in your 917.xxxxxx model number and the pictures will show you an exploded view of the belt configurations

Ok On your machine somewhere is a serial number plate. The number will begin with 917. Go to the Sears PARTS DIRECT and enter that whole number and your machine will come up.

I have a craftsman Lt 1500 and the belt came off is there any way u can tighten it without having to replace the belt?


All belt driven machinery has some way of adjusting the tension and to aid removal and replacement. Look for a tension pulley or a way to slide one of the pulleys closer or further away.

Hi, first check the spring that pulls on the idler pulley for lost tension then run the blades for a 10 to 15 minutes at half to full throttle. This is necessary to bed the new belt into the old pulleys. Regards Phil.

I bought a new belt for my2005 lt 1000 42" deck


for a deck no.. Most everything on the deck is done by springs.. what i would do is look at the deck make sure nothing is rubbing the belt making it rip apart.. or make it to not engage.. i would with the engine off engage the blade and disengage the blade make sure all the brakes are pulling away from the pulleys and making sure all the arms are moving to tighten the belt.. if nothing is moving then i double check the cable or however engages the deck (all mowers are different) and if need the part. If the cable is not broken and is still on deck make sure all springs are lubed. If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

How to replace deck belt on lt 1000 craftsman riding mower


there are several belt guards that you will need to loosen then the belt will slip right on. having someone hold the clutch will make it easier, and the belt diagram should be on the deck. If not, these are common mowers, so a search for this or a friends/neighbors mower may hold the answer. Be sure to re tighten all guards or your belt will pop off and wear out very fast against these metal parts
