First thing is dry bearings. Over time, the ball or roller bearings in both units can get dried of lubricant. The only solutions are to lube them before they are damaged significantly {beyond use} or replace them. If this is not an electric PTO clutch, then it is likely the linkage that operates the PTO clutch is in need of adjustment and/or lubrication. Most use an idler pulley on a V-belt as the 'clutching' mechanism. If the linkage is binding, or the idler pulley out of adjustment, it won't work well.

I have a 52" Husqvarna LGT 2654 riding lawn mower and when I engage the blades, the belt does not turn the pulley system. What could be causing this, the pulley idlers, or the belt?


depending on the age of the machine, there could be several possibilities
1-- belts are not tight enough--- belt tension system is not correct, wrong length belts
2--bearings for the shafts for the blades are rusted up and seized - preventing the blades from moving--- switch the machine off , disengage the belt drive and see if you can turn the blades by hand
3--- if you have an electric pto system to drive the belts to the blades then that system is not getting full power to engage the PTO or the clutch is not working--worn facings
take it to a service dealer and have a proper diagnosis done

How to i change the drive train belt on my cub cadet z force 50


  1. First park your mower on level ground and apply the parking brake.
  2. Remove the deck drive belt from the PTO clutch.
  3. Remove the electric PTO clutch. This is done by disconnecting the electrical wires first. Then removing the center bolt using an impact wrench. A pull bar can used but you must prevent the engine from turning by blocking the flywheel.
  4. Remove the tension on the drive belt idler.
  5. Remove the drive belt from around the pulleys. Be careful as the engine may try fall off depending on if it isn't seized on yet.
  6. Installation is the reverse of the above instructions.
  7. After install the PTO clutch tighten the center bolt to 55 ft lbs using a torque wrench (not your impact wrench) with the flywheel blocked from moving.

The blades run all the time on my cub cadet 1042, even if the PTO is off


If your cub has an electric pto clutch it may be fused. Or the switch is stuck on. You can check the switch with multitester to see if its energized all the time. If not the clutch is probably fused. Which is cause for replacement. Adjustment only works with clutches that wont engage.

If you pto is mechanically engaged look for obstructions in the lever pathway. Also check for stuck idler pulleys.

Be careful and good luck!

What makes a belt squeak?


Belts squeak for the same reason tires do when they spin. They are slipping. Something isn't turning as fast as the belt wants it to. On ford it's usually ether the idler sprocket or the tensioner. If you remove the belt and try spinning all of the pulleys by hand.( note the crank wont spin freely) you will usually be able to tell witch ones slipping.

How do you put the drive belt for the hydrostatic drive on?


You'll be working underneath the mower, so it is helpful to raise the mower chassis up -- at least in back. Use your automobile jack, then put jackstands underneath the chassis to do this. Take off the deck drive belt first by releasing the idler spring(s). Unbolt and remove the "anchor" that keeps the PTO clutch from rotating. Disconnect the electrical wires leading to the PTO. Release the tension on the idler for the hydrostatic drive belt. Now you can thread the new hydrostatic belt over the engine pulley and around both wheel motor pulleys. The idler pulley presses it inward to provide tension. Refasten the idler spring - a pair of channellock pliers works well to hold and pull the spring. Now reinstall the wires and the PTO anchor, then the mower deck belt. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks!

How do i get the upper pulley above the pto clutch


I've yet to remove these in one piece...even when I smeared anti-seize all over it. You can try a 3 jaw puller, but you'll most likely end up just bending the pulley. The pulleys are about 25 dollars locally in my area. Honestly, i just air chisel them off, and buy new every time i change drive belts.
