A spring keeps the tension on a PTO belt. It may be broke or unhooked.

Looks like the manual is now longer available in the link above. So, just in case, you can download this MTD Yard Man 42" Mower.

SOURCE: Craftsman 42 inch cutting deck riding lawn mower.

Some of the 42 inch Craftsman mowers Have a cable that goes from the blade leaver to the deck some have a linkage if it has the cable check it to see if it has broken. Find where it connects to the deck pully and pull on the cable wire not the cable cover and see if if comes out also make sure it is connected to the top of the idler pully. If it has a linkage there is a clip that holdes that linkage to the deck it most likely came off.

SOURCE: how do you tighten lower belt on a 42 ich yardman

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).

I have a MTD yardman 1999,2000 ride mower that won't start because it says the pto is engaged when it's not actually engaged if you could comment an image of the same 42 inch deck?


Check your PTO switch operation which is at the engagement handle.

As for hooking the cable spring to deck idler pulley and brake assembly it goes in the hole closest to the idler pulley on the G deck which different then the F deck which uses the same idler arm assembly as the part is design to fit both decks.

Also make sure your using an OEM spec as a will fit will not work properly. You also must the spindle pulleys belt retainer covers in place so the belt will stay on.

I have a 2002 YardMachine, 660 Model, 15.5 HP, 42" Cut. Two Issues. 1) After changing of PTO Cutting Blade Belt, mower lost all power to transmission. No GO F or R. Before belt change, mower would loose...


without looking at the belts i will tell you that the wheels on most mowers only come in a few sizes and are made by just one or two companies. so find a mower or small engine repair shop in the phone book and go get some new wheels and bearings from them. makes it easy if you take an old one with you. while you are there run the belt issue past them and maybe they can give you some guidance.

The oil on your pulley could definitely be the culprit. You need friction in order for your belts to work properly.

How do you tighten PTO belt?


If the belt is loose it probably needs replaced or has jumped out of one of the pulley or belt guards allowing it to be sloppy. Belts get stretched in many different ways, tall grass, grass getting in the pulley, or they just plain stretch. First though, check to be sure the belt hasn't jumped out of it's normal runway.
