    Model number 917.252521.Spring apears to be good and strong. Could it be the engine pulley? I also suspected a spring. I only see the one large one.

    Thank You....

Sears Craftsman riding mower V belt getting chewed


I believe you may have the belt over one or more of the belt retainers next to the pulleys. They are 5 or 6 inches long and about a 1/4 inch in diameter. You have to loosen them when you put the belt on then adjust them to where they are just barely touching the back of the belt. They keep the belt from jumping off.

Clutch vibration and jerking at slow speeds.


Check the drive belt. It probably has chunks missing or at least has flat spots (narrow spots) that cause the belt to jump every time it goes around a pulley. That will set up a heck of a vibration. Also check the pulleys for free movement. The drive belt is above the blade drive belt....
