John Deere 160 Mower Surging Problem

I have an older JD 160 that sat for many years. I replaced the battery, all belts, fuel line, fuel & air filter, spark lug, rebuilt the carb, and all new intake gaskets. Starts right up and runs great. The problem is, when I drive in first, it drives fine, 2nd gear has a very slight surging when driving, 3rd gear seems to surge bad, 4th is slight like 2nd, and 5th has no surge. It acts like the governor has issues, but I checked and adjusted it and it seems fine. The surging is more like a bucking and I cant figure it out. I have been working on small engines for 20 years but this has me stumped. Any ideas? Please!

Have a JD LT166W/48 and need a mower deck belt


Do you mean the John Deere LT166 Lawn Tractor with 48" Convertible Deck mower. If so, the replacement belt is GX10063, according to the maintenance sheet: https://jdparts.deere.com/partsmkt/document/english/featbene/fb_MaintSheet_LT166_48CdeckLawnTractor.pdf . One vendor has the belt here: http://www.greenpartstore.com/John-Deere-Drive-Belt-GX10063.html .

I hope this helps. If you have a different mower deck, please add a comment with more information about your specific mower. I may be able to find additional JD parts for the machine. You can also look up parts here: http://jdpc.deere.com/jdpc/servlet/com.deere.u90490.partscatalog.view.servlets.HomePageServlet_Alt .

How do I replace the drive belt on a john deere 265? There doesn't seem to be a clear answer anywhere. Please help


you can look at the manuel that came with the mower or if you did not get one, go to the JD mower web site and look up you model and download the needed documentation. If that is not possible contact the local JD mower dealer and get a copy of the mower deck docs and look at the instructions for belt replacement.

Very high likelihood you have fuel line problems. Disconnect primary fuel line from bottom of fuel filter and blow compressed air back up the fuel line to the gas tank. This will clear the line of any trash. Reconnect fuel line to filter. Then remove spark plug and spray a couple of sprays of WD-40 into the cylinder.. Re-install spark plug and then restart. WD-4- will act as a starter fuel and will start the engine for enough rounds to get fuel pump to working to normal run.. Good luck.

JD Lx289 Surging at full revs, and full accelleration. Grinding noise and accellerator pedel vibrating/pulsating. more common when machine is warm.


When it is at full throttle start pulling the choke on slowly and see if it smoothes out and stops surging.if it doe,s you have a carb problem.this means it is getting too much air.you will have too rebuild or replace carb.
