Question about Garden

1 Answer

Motion belt was recently replaced and the mower seemed to be operating as intended; mowed the lawn with no problem. The next time I tried to use it I discovered that, as soon as the mower deck is engaged, the engine stalls; disengaging the mower deck before the engine has completely stalled, allows the engine to recover and operate normally. I can drive the mower around until I re-engage the mower deck. Does anyone know what is going on and how to fix this problem?

This could well be a miro switch issue, start with the seat switch make sure the connector is fully pushed onto the micro switch, if no better make sure you are fully sat in the seat to activate the switch, if still no better replace the switch.

I need help putting rear end back together on a 10 hp30 Murray riding lawnmower


Safety and Preparation Serious injury can occur if the engine or mower blades accidentally start while you are working with lawn tractors. To prevent this, drive the Murray lawn tractor onto a flat work surface and disengage the mowing deck cutting blades. Engage the parking brake to keep the mower from moving; chock the wheels with a wooden block or brick. Adjust the mowing deck to the lowest position. Turn off the engine and remove the key from the ignition. While not necessary, you may even wish to disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Mowing Deck Removal You must remove the mowing deck on a Murray lawn tractor to gain access to the belts. Remove the adjustment rod hairpins, followed by the adjustment rod pins from the front left and right sides of the mowing deck. At the rear on the left and right sides, pull out the retaining hairpins and slide the mowing deck suspension links from the adjuster plates to separate the rear mowing deck from the frame. Remove the blade control rod stud, including the hairpin and washer, from the top of the blade control lever shift linkage at the left rear of the deck. Remove the front hanger rod, including the hairpin and flat washer that hold the rod in place. Loosen the belt guide retaining bolts with a socket wrench and remove the engine stack pulley belt so you can slide the mower deck out from under the tractor Transmission Drive Belt Installation Slide the new transmission drive belt between the engine stack pulley belt guides, over the belt guide plate and under the engine stack pulley. Fit the transmission drive belt around the top engine stack pulley. Push the free end of the transmission drive belt up through the transmission shifter hole in the lawn tractor floorboard. Slip the transmission drive belt loop over the transmission shifter. Pull the transmission drive belt down through the transmission shifter hole. Fit the transmission drive belt around the transmission drive pulley and tighten the transmission drive pulley belt guide retaining bolts to hold it in place. Fit the transmission drive belt flat side around the idler pulley. Slide the idler pulley onto the idler pulley stud while holding the belt in place. Tighten the transmission idler pulley retaining nut with a socket wrench to secure the idler pulley to the idler pulley stud. Mowing Deck Drive Belt Installation Pull back on the right side mowing deck mandrel pulley spring-tensioned belt retainer. Guide the new mowing deck drive belt around the right side mandrel pulley and release the belt retainer. Pull the drive belt spring-tensioned retainer away from the mowing deck idler pulley, guiding the deck drive belt around the idler pulley. Fit the mowing deck drive belt around the left side mandrel pulley and under the rear mowing deck cross link rod between the right and left side mandrel pulley. Slide the mowing deck under the right side lawn tractor frame, reconnecting the deck to the frame in reverse order of removal. Engage and disengage the mower deck while driving the mower to test the belt for proper operation.

What's the hurry


What's this marketing ploy now days about cutting your lawn mowing time in half. I can understand that if u have a bunch of lawns to mow. Beings i only have one, I'm really not a big hurry. Take a look at your yard, do some thinking, and don't over spend. I only want to have to sharpen 2 blades not 3 or 4, and the less drive belts the better. U get your exercise with a walk behind, and get the grass cut too. Last time I was mower shopping, one salesman tried to sell me a 6,900.00 lawn mower. He said it would cut my mowing time in half. I said I'm not buying a mowing that's worth more than my pickup, and for 6,900.00 I could pay someone to mow my yard, and cut my mowing time down to zero.

When do you know when the clutch is shot? My problem is it doesn't want to mow thick grass and seems like maybe the belt is stretched.


It does sound like a belt problem, if possible replace it with a kevlar belt, they last way longer and will survive more abuse.

Murray 46581X92A. Does not go up a hill. Seems like something is slipping. Mowes okay on level ground.


Could be the drive belt is slipping. This is the belt that goes from the engine to the transmission. If it is worn it can slip. You can go to this link and view parts.

I'm having trouble replaceing the motion drive belt on my LT1000 lawn tractor. The mowing deck is off, the old drive belt is off. I can't get the belt around the transaxle pully. Any suggestions?


Often there is a keeper on the back of the pulley, and the belt must go inside the keeper. Get an inspection mirror up in there to look if necessary. Start by putting the belt on the transaxle pulley, then on the PTO pulley, then on the idler, last have someone sit on the mower and depress the clutch pedal while you put the belt over that pulley.

Slow Mow


Try fixing this problem by making sure the belt is installed properly.. Whenever you install a drive belt it needs to be "seated". Make sure the belt is on correctly and the first time you try it out to see if the mower will move, start out in the highest gear. Hang on as it may ****, but this is the proper way to replace and seat a drive belt.
