SOURCE: install belt on cub cadet mower

First, make sure you have the model number and serial number (located under the seat) and then go to www.cubcadet.com to get a belt diagram so you know which way the belt snakes through the pulleys.

You will have to remove the two pulley covers on either side of the deck.

Fit the belt around the right side of the deck pulleys when you are on the left. There is an arm attached to the springed pulley on the left side. It will have a hole the size of a 3/8" driver/ratchet. Set the ratchet on unscrew (to the left) and push the arm in toward the center of the mower. You will see the pulley moving too, creating enough slack to slip the belt over the edge of the rim of the pulley with a little elbow grease. If it is too tight, get someone to push in with the ratchet while you slip it on. Once again, you are the grass cutter king!

SOURCE: I have a Cub Cadet 1250. The PTO suddenly stopped

Look at www.cubcadet.com. There under parts you should find an IPL for your mower. You will need the model and serial number from under the seat to get the information. Look under the electrical for PTO.

SOURCE: my cub cadet mower LT1042 will not start. It acts

Just had the same problem with our LT1042 and it was the fuel shut off soloniod. Could not buy just that piece so we took it off and cut off the piece that went up on the carborator and put it back on. Started right up. Now it back-fires when we shut it off but it runs.

SOURCE: I own a Cub Cadet Hydrostatic Lawn Tractor, not

Hello, W/D here.
Without a particular model number, I'll have to be somewhat generic, so forgive me in advance.
The fact that the mower will run and the blades will engage is good news; it eliminates about half of the things that would need to be checked.
Look for a lever at the (usually) back of the tractor, on the back plate, down low. Sometimes called a range selector or a disengagement lever. Normally, the position of this rod is "IN". If it has pulled towards the "OUT" position, the transmission is disengaged. Usually this rod is pulled out when you want to push the mower, and I expect you're tired of that by now! Chech and see if this is the issue, and post back if not.
Regards, --W/D--

Installation of motor drive belt on cub cadet tractor


This one's a PITA. That said, I had to remove the PTO clutch and pulley, the seat, the brake and transmission pedals, and finally the sheet metal that constitutes the fenders and foot plates.

Belt is put over the fan above the transmission and onto the pulley there, then run along bottom of main frame towards the front until it reaches the engine drive shaft.

The belt goes onto a pulley on the engine drive shaft (above the PTO clutch and pulley, which have to come off). I couldn't slide the drive pulley down the shaft, so pulled the 4 engine mounting bolts and move the engine around slightly to allow putting the new belt on between the pulley and it's surrounding sheet metal. Once the belt was on, and before any other steps, I realigned the engine mounting holes and replace the bolts.

The belt is then run around the pulleys under the middle section of the tractor. Leave the spring loaded idler pulley for last. you might need to loosen (not remove) the bolt that goes through the idler pulley in order to get the belt on. The biggest fight is pulling the spring loaded pulley over so that you can put the belt onto it.


Once the belt is fully routed over all pulleys. Reinstall everything that you had to remove - and you should be good-to-go.


ONE LAST COMMENT: Many shops sell belts that DON'T have Kevlar. Make sure you but the one WITH Kevlar. The others rarely last one season.

Belt comes off. idler pulley bracket doesn't seem to have enough tension on it. Bracket spring is still on. Maybe wrong spring? Just bought new belt and it went on way easier than old belt . is...


the new belt should be a hair smaller than the older one thus being tighter to put on, either the new belt is the wrong size or you don,t have the tensioner spring tight enouph, did you have to take it off at some point and just not get it back in the right hole
also make sure your routing the belt the right way around the pullies,if all that is good ten check the length on the belt
sounds like its just a matter of correct routing

My belt came off and I need to know how to put it back on?


There should be 4 pulleys.2on the deck that are above the blades,put the belt on those first.

There should be a tension pulley,with the engine OFF,look on top of the deck and engage the blades.Note the direction the tension pulley moves,the belt must pass inside that pulley.Now disengage the blades and put the belt on the engine pulley.

Belt keep coming off cub cadet 1042, all parts on deck have been replaced with new parts & still the belt comes off every time


my cub cadet used to throw the cutter belt too....till i took the drastic step of adding a bit more tension to the belt. this was achieved by drilling another hole on either side of the chassis about 1 3/4 inches to the rearward of the machine and moving the lift arms to the new holes. Viola, more belt tension, and furthermore there is now no interference between the tensioner and the rearmost run of the belt.
