Question about Craftsman Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
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.
