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.

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.

I have a cub cadet LT1042 and it is 3 years old...we have replaced the pto 2 times and replaced the belt 7 times what is the deal


You have to have something rubbing under there that isn't supposed to be, crawl under the tractor and watch the belt go around by hand, if you can turn it. Maybe see what is frozen up, in the wrong place, Gotta be a belt guide is rubbing or a pulley is not spinning. The PTO should last 20 years, all i can think is they got it too tight to start, .010" min, that is tight, and you must be in Florida picking up a lot of sand? If it was under any kind of warranty, I would raise a big stink about it. Those PTO's are not cheap. And the belt has got to be $20. I wouldn't go to a dealer for the belt, unless it is really special, just match it up at the auto parts store, for half the price of dealer. Hope this helps.

PTO WHEN PULLED DOES NOT ENGAGE....BLADES DO NOT START...


Check your mower deck spindles and belt. If belt is slipping at all the PTO will not engage.

Cub Cadet LT1042 PTO won't disengage


If its an electric PTO then the switch on the dash is bad, Its a lever type ungagement then the little break shoes that rub on the blade spindles are either worn out or mis adjusted.If it started when you changed the blade drive belt its possibly the wrong belt??

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.
