    I afraid that not it. It should be on the bottom of your seat on a tag with model and serial #'s on it. A long 13AJ609G722 (not this # of course)

How to change pto belt on club cadet 1046

To replace a transmission drive belt on a Cub Cadet LT1046 you need to remove the deck, preferably put the front wheels up on blocks or stands, unplug the PTO power (directly under the engine, which can be a pain ) You need a 5/8" socket to get the bolt out of the PTO pulley assy.(electric clutch). If you don't have an impact wrench take a spark plug out and push rope into the hole. This will bind the cylinder and keep the drive shaft from turning. Remove rope and replace plug when finished. Battery and/or spark plug wires should be removed for this process for safety.
The PTO may be stuck on there so you may want to tap it with a hammer and a block of wood carefully to release it. Loosen old belt from tensioner pulley. Lower engine pully on drive shaft, below pully "keys". It may be difficult to remove. Spray with "PB Blaster" or similar bolt loosener spray. Remove old belt from engine pulley first, transmission pulley last. Remember how belt goes around pulleys before doing so, make a diagram to help.

You'll need to put the belt on the transmission pulley first then thread the belt up to the engine pulley. Thread your belt back through the pulleys and tensioner (make sure your spring is strong enough to tension the belt or buy a new one).

The PTO pulley is "keyed" on the shaft. Replace bolt and washer. Torque bolt to 38-50 ft. lbs. using the rope meathod as described before. Put your deck back on and you're ready to mow again

How to put on new belt

Zoom into the diagram, remove (item 45) belt cover to expose the belt and pulleys. Take note of how the belt is routed.! you will need to follow the same route with the new belt. You may need to remove the Blade guard (item 40) if the belt doesn't fit over the head of the guard. There may also be a sprung idle tension pulley, which will take up the slack in the belt once replaced. Looks pretty straight forward.

Trying to change the drive belt on a GTX 2446 Troy Bilt garden lawn mower rider can't get the pulley upper plate of the motor

You must remove the electric PTO clutch in order to remove the motion drive belt. Also it probably require you remove the bolts holding transmission if your going and secondary drive so can it off and on.

Replacing a belt

Replacing the Drive Belt
IMPORTANT: To aid in reassembly, note the orientation
of the drive belt on the two idler pulleys and the engine
flywheel pulley prior to performing the following steps.
Refer to Figure 10.
The edger drive belt is subject to wear and should be
replaced if any signs of cracking, shredding or rotting
are present. To replace the belt, proceed as follows:
1. Working in front of the edger, loosen the flange
lock nut on top of frame, allowing the idler pulley
assembly to pivot slightly out from the frame. See
Figure 10.
2. With your other hand, carefully reach under the
rear of the unit and remove the belt from around the
engine flywheel pulley.
3. Remove the spindle sheaves belt guard by removing
the two self-tapping screws which secure it to the
blade plate assembly. See Figure 10.
4. Carefully remove the belt from the pulleys,
again making sure to note the orientation of the belt.
Discard the belt.
Install the replacement belt (Part No. 754-04032B) in the
same configuration that the original belt was routed as
follows:5. Working from the front of the edger, place the belt onto
the spindle sheaves, route it back onto the two idler
pulleys, and then place it onto the engine flywheel
IMPORTANT: Make certain that the "V" side of the belt
is seated into the top pulley and the flat side of the belt is
seated into the bottom pulley.
6. Reinstall the spindle sheaves belt guard with the self
tapping screws removed earlier.
7. Make certain that the drive belt is on the engine
flywheel pulley and idler pulleys, and retighten the
flange lock nut on the top of the frame.
IMPORTANT: Make certain that the drive belt is seated
correctly and that it is riding smoothly on the spindle
sheaves and is not pinched between them. Repeat the
first three steps if the belt is pinched.
You don't want the belt pinched between those spindle me ;)

My troy built 210 6.75 hp mower self propelled mower doesnt pull

remove the front black plastic plate that is stamped self propelled and replace the wheel drive belt that attaches the engine pulley (above blade) to the transmission pulley (found under the cover). When you buy the belts, pick up two or three as I seem to go through a couple per season. Hopes this helps

Changing Drive belt On Troy Built Tiller

You have to remove the engine (4 bolts, no big problem), then remove the bolt in the center of the pulleys, then remove the pulleys. Slip the belt(s) (2 if you have the Super Bronco model) onto the pulleys, re-attach the pulleys with the bolt, re-mount the engine, and you're home free.
