Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I have a craftsman automatic and the drive belt has broken. Won't go forward or reverse. How do I go about installing a new belt, and is there any free diagrams to look at to find the right belt. Thanks Jim
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
