SOURCE: john deere 316 belt

I am so far from expert...me answering this surprises me. However, I can...JD Small Engines has plenty of diagrams for the 316. Here's how a old single lady changes the belt on her 85 316. There is a bolt running from side to side of a black metal box...on the very front at the bottom of the mower below the grill. If you pull that out, just the front of the mower deck separates from the mower..slip the belt in and around the rear central pulley. Put the pin back in with the belt now around the back pulley and outside the part where the pin goes back in. Get a pneumatic tire jack and jack up the right (your left as you face the front of the machine) front pulley..try to catch the pulley armature or bolt so you don't torque the pulley. This releases the tensioner...thread the belt on the right pulley and reach up under the grill and put the belt over the front engine pulley....now all that's left is to get the belt over the left pulley. At this point, I remember having to either lower the deck to the ground or raise it up all the way...to the ground, I think as it wasn't already in the correct position. Once you start fussing with the left pulley, you will see it is spring loaded and easy to force the belt over if the right pulley is still on the jack. Really important to get the belt inside all the belt guides and lowering the deck before you frustrate yourself with getting the belt over the last pulley. When all is done, release the jack and everything tightens right up.

SOURCE: Replacing traction drive belt for John Deere L118

Actually this is a fairly easy looking one to replace. If you go to John Deere parts and do a search for your tractor, in the parts listing it gives a pretty clear picture of the routing and configuration of the belt as it should go on, you might want to print it out to have nearby while you are working on it. You will need to remove the mowing deck to get at it and possibly some large blocks to elevate the tractor to give yourself room to work.
Look closely at the old belt if it is still on the tractor to get an idea what is involved BEFORE you start, comparing it with the picture. You will need to loosen and move or remove the belt guards and do be careful of the nylon fan on top of your transaxle

SOURCE: Electric Clutch want engage the mower deck on my l120 john deere

They wear out. How old is the mower? Mine just gave out this week in the peak of hay season. (my grass) The wire can be unhooked from the PTO clutch and a 12 volt jumper can test it, if it jumps, it is good, if not, it is shorted out, they are expensive, I found 3 of them all the wrong size for mine. Try to find the same one. Ebay has a couple on there right now. Check it out.

Ow do I tighten the belt on the mowing platform


Most JD mower decks use a spring loaded tensioner on their belts. Make sure that the belt is threadded thru the pulleys the right way and you may find that considerable effort is required to set the tensioner in position. Be very careful to ensure that if the grip slips the spring flies away from you. I use the hook on a cargo strap to pull mine into position. Normally there is a similar tensioner on the drive belt for the wheels. This is more challenging to get to.

How do I get the transmission drive belt back on


With the engine OFF, tread belt on by hand as much as you can, with heavy gloves on reach underneath deck and grasp mower blade and turn it until belt is on. You need the extra torque from grabbing the blade to slip it on over the the pulley's edge.

How do I get the deck drive belt on?


If the belt seems to short most of the time you only have to push the pedal in that makes the mower drive pulleys closer together.
This makes the belt slide over the pulleys and when you release the pedal the belt is tight and drives the mower.

My idea is not about the belts, but is about the deck. If the tensioning mechanism on the deck is getting stuck in an intermittant position than the belt may be just tight enough to turn blades while slipping through the pulleys, this may cause enough friction to start melting your belts. If this is the case you will have to remove your mower deck and see what is preventing the mechanism from functioning properly.

How to put on drive belt onmy mower


Based on experience with MTD and AYP products: 1) remove mower to deck belt, 2) remove deck, 3) have helper press brake pedal down which puts slack in drive belt, 4) pull drive belt first from front engine pulley or rear transmission pulley then remove entirely. Reinstall in reverse order.

CAVEATS 1) If a pulley is grooved then the narrow part of the belt goes into it, if the pulley is flat then most likely the back of the belt goes against it in a tensioning function. 2) There are often guides or keepers which hold the belt in place, these can be hard to see and if the belt is not routed inside them it may well not work or hop out under load.

How do you tighten lower belt on a 42 ich yardman riding mower?


By lower belt i suppose you are reffering to the drive belt or the blade deck belt, either way these belts are usually tensioned by a spring loaded idler pulley. If the belt is still too loose even with the pulley tensioning it, it may be time for a new belt (that one may have streched out a bit).

It is kept tight by a tensioning pully. If it is loose, replace it.
