Loose the lock washer before you cut your own feet off or kill the neighbor with blade flying off ! Put bolt in and tighten make sure alignment pins on blade are where they are supposed to be . make sure no grass is caked up around any of the blade or drive shaft

SOURCE: I hit a rock and bent the blade on a yard machine.

I did the same exact thing over the weekend, try adjusting your new blade unscrew the main bolt to the blade about 1/2 turn that should get it spinning again, same exact thing happened to me. Good Luck

SOURCE: How do you replace a belt to a riding lawn mower?

Basically, it is not a big job.
First thing to do is take the key out of the ignition Switch.
Secondly, Lower the deck to it's lowest position. Look for a belt that runs from the motor pulley to the deck. Now have someone move the lever that engages the blades.
A set of pullets should move when the lever is moved.
You need to get these pulleys unhooked from the cable or lever or both. Now you should be able to remove the worn belt.
Installation is the reverse of this. With the belt removed you should check the pulleys for wear on the bearings, especially the ones that the blades mount to.

You can also go to You Tube and search for lawnmower belt remove. There are about 1,000 or so there.
BE SAFE!

Get some red lock tight and put it on the spindle shaft threads. Sounds like the threads are worn down and just won't hold the spindle nut tight any longer.

What will cause the bolt and nut for the blades to keep coming loose?


This is usually caused by one of two things. If you have the right size bolt,put a lock washer on it and tighten until the washer is flat. If it continues to work loose you should check for the proper bolt size/ threads or the threads in the bolt hole could be worn out

Just enough to guide the blade in place so the screw can be tightened to secure the blade. BUT - you might have sheared the flywheel key that times the flywheel and ignition system.

Sounds like you lost the drive key out of the crankshaft, it's usually half-moon shaped and keeps the blade hub and the crankshaft turning together, the bolt just holds it all on the end of the crankshaft.
Hope this helps!

Mower hit a big rock and stoped running


If you hit something hard enough to partially shear the key on the blade adapter, you did shear the key on the flywheel, and it will need to be replaced for the engine to run properly.
