Question about Garden
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

If you are putting on the mtd belts and installing them right then you need to check bearings in variable speed pulley Also check idler and that no other pulley has been bent from installation.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=917.273638&pop=flush Enter your model # and search, scroll down to mower deck, and there ya are.It's an easy one. Straight across the back between the blade pulleys, then to the inside of both idler pulleys, then to the engine pulley. Hope this helps. Dwain

Go to... http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action Enter the model number that is under the seat. If it's a lawn tractor, it will start with 917. That will get you to all the diagrams of the mower.

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.
