Question about Mtd Garden
Hello, I had a variable speed drive belt break on my mtd lawnmower (tmo-3200003). I purchased a Gates v belt (5/8 x 53") to replace it with. My problem is that I am not exactly sure how the belt goes back on. I have tried a couple of different ways and it will not drive my trans axial pulley. It is either too loose or too tight. I have the belt going from the engine shaft pulley back to the variable drive pulley, but in between is some sort of other pulley. I am not sure how it goes around that. Does the belt go on one side of it (too tight) or on both sides of it (too loose). Another thing to consider is that during the process of changing the belt, the extension spring, connected the Variable Speed Torque Brkt. ***'y came off as well as the Variable Speed Torque Brkt. ***'y itself. I think I have it all put back together properly, but I am not positive. Thanks for any help.
Get your model and serial numbers from under the seat. Then go to the MTD website where you can download the owners manual which should show the belt diagram.
