SOURCE: replacing belt on lt1000 lawn

I do not have a diagram,but I do know where it goes.Look at the tension pulley.The arm it is mounted on move.That arm is where the spring belongs.First move the arm with your hand.pull it so that the blades are not engaged.Now the side of the arm away from the pulley and closest to the rear of the mower,is where the spring goes.There may be several holes,do not pull the spring too much,just get it in one of those holes.Then try the blades.If they do not engage,move the spring,to another hole.

I have a 30"/ 16.5 craftsman snowblower and the traction belt keeps jumping off almost as soon as I engage the drive. I have replaced the belts and it happened again.


1) Look for obvious pulleys out of alignment. Most pulleys on a drive system are 'keyed' and have a set screw or bolt holding them into position.
2) Most traction belts turn with the engine, so it turns all the time. Look for an idler pulley with spring attached that may be out of alignment.
3) Inspect the 'V' groove of the driven pulley for any foreign debris.
4) Inspect the driven pulley for damaged caused by another pulley or object striking the edge of the 'V'.

Change belt on snapper 722 snow blower


1. Remove the belt cover with a socket wrench. Slide the belt cover off and set it aside.
2. Remove the two belt cover stud bolts with a socket wrench to get to the auger belt guide. 3. Remove the belt guide with a socket wrench.
4. Push down on the belt tensioner pulley with your hand. Remove the old belt and set it aside.
5. Install the new belt and release the belt tensioner pulley to tighten the belt.
6. Re-install the belt guide with a socket wrench and tighten the bolt.
7. Re-install the two belt cover stud bolts and tighten with a socket wrench.
8. Re-install the belt cover and secure it with the cover bolts. Tighten the bolts with a socket wrench.

I pulled the following from a snaper model similar to yours.
The snowthrower has two drive belts, one for the traction
drive-which transmits engine power to the wheels, and
a second for the auger drive-which transmits engine
power to the auger mechanism.
Each of these drive belts are of special construction and
should be replaced only with genuine replacement belts
which match the original equipment belts. These are
available from your dealer.
Traction Drive Belt Replacement
I pulled the following from a snapper model similar to yours. Believe it should help.

1. Disconnect spark plug wire and fasten it away from
the spark plug.
2. Remove belt cover. (Located in back of the discharge shute).
3. Pull the traction drive belt idler pulley arm (See
Figure 24) away from the belt to relieve tension, and
slide the belt off the engine pulley.
4. Slip the belt off from around the traction pulley (See
Figure 29) and pull the belt out of the unit between
the auger pulley and the traction pulley (the lower
cover need not be removed for this step).
5. Reverse the procedure to install the new belt. Be
sure there are no twists in the belt, and that the belt is
properly seated in the pulley grooves.
6. Replace the belt cover.
7. Start the unit, and check the traction drive for proper
operation. See "Traction Clutch Cable Adjustment"
for adjustment procedures.

There are also several videos on YouTube on changing snowthrowr belts. (Didn't see one for your blower, but most similar and should provide a good starting reference).

Is there some sort of tension adjustment for the hydrostatic drive? The belt is not turning the drive but everything is hooked up. I found that the belt had come off of one of the pulleys earlier in the...


My GT 1052 has a spring loaded idler pulley to maintain traction on the belt. If the belt came off a pulley once, it's probably stretched or some of the internal cords have broken, allowing it to twist and come off the pulley. You should replace it immediately. One Note: Be SURE to get a belt with Kevlar - I used a lesser belt the first time, and it only lasted a short while. Considering the amount of effort to change the belt, it's better to buy the slightly more expensive one's with Kevlar as they last MUCH longer.

How do you replace a drive cable on a toro recycler 6.5 hp.


Its a bit of a pain - but with ordinary tools, it can be done. Get the replacement cable first. You can see how the bottom spring wraps around the cable with a universal joint sort of arrangement. Remove the belt protector (three screws from the top deck; if you have a battery compartment, that will temporarily need to go. Release the old cable from the top and middle attachment points, then unhook the spring from the traction lever. You might need to destroy the old cable lock to the mower deck to remove the old cable. Remove the plastic cup next to the cable where it exits the mower deck. Replace parts in this order: New spring/cable to the traction lever, snap in plastic interface to mower deck, small plastic cup top cable attachment, then middle attachment. You might need to move the middle attachment after you give it a test run. Replace belt cover and battery compartment if necessary. A lot of steps but, except for a difficult fit to get the spring hooked up, nothing is really difficult. I paid about $30 for the replacement cable from a local dealer; Overpriced, but I wanted to get the job done today.
