Craftsman lt 1500 drive belt diagram

Tractor will run but not move. Belts seem to be fine, but the manual just says to call for service. Any diagrams for changing the drive belts? Evidently it has two. Small one for the trans and another longer one for the pulleys. Thanks for any help

Do you see a belt diagram posted on the deck somewhere? If you do follow it. One very important thing to remember with belts is the v-pulleys accept the v-portion of the belt and the flat pulleys accept the flat side of the belt. If I can be of more help please feel free to mail me.Donnyb60

SOURCE: My Sears 917.272911 Lawn Tractor is eating mower drive belts

There's a couple of things that could be causing this. First, make sure the idler pulleys and blade pulleys spin freely. Second make sure the belt is behind the belt keepers on the two idler pulleys. There is only one on the left idler, but TWO on the right idler. I suspect that is your problem. Anyway, once the belt is on, engage the blades, with engine OFF, and inspect the belt routing, making sure it's not over or under something it shouldn't be.

Putting on a new drive belt on my craftsman 46'' tractor


Look up under the foot boards on the tractor, Sears usually puts the diagram of the routing for both belts under there.

If you can not locate those stickers, look in your Owner's Manual, the parts section will have a picture of what the belt looks like when it is installed.

If you don't have the owners manual or simply don't know where you put it, look under the seat, get the Model number for the tractor that begins with 917. then go to searspartsdirect.com enter the full model number and download the parts manual and in most cases you can also download an Owners Manual as well.

Mower stopped moving


If this is a manual transmission, check the drive belt from the engine back to the transmission. With the clutch pedal up (engaged) there should be no slack in the belt.

If it is a hydrostatic drive, check the drive belt and make sure it is tight. Check the transmission fluid level and make sure it is full. Refer to your owners manual as it will describe the fluid check proceedure.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,
