If the fan blades aren't torn, you could try bending them back in place. I have had sucess doing that before. The plastic naturally wants to go back to where it was, with a little help. If that doesn't work, you can replace the fan, or have it replaced.

Looking for how to refit drive belt on my LTH1742

The drive belt goes around the transmission pulley (located under the cooling fan) then attaches to the engine. You will then need to loop the around the idler set. You will find a "v" shaped pulley and a flat pulley. The flat fits on the outside of the belt and the belt fits down into the "v" pulley. You need to remove the tension of the idler set to fit the belt.

Installation of motor drive belt on cub cadet tractor

This one's a PITA. That said, I had to remove the PTO clutch and pulley, the seat, the brake and transmission pedals, and finally the sheet metal that constitutes the fenders and foot plates.

Belt is put over the fan above the transmission and onto the pulley there, then run along bottom of main frame towards the front until it reaches the engine drive shaft.

The belt goes onto a pulley on the engine drive shaft (above the PTO clutch and pulley, which have to come off). I couldn't slide the drive pulley down the shaft, so pulled the 4 engine mounting bolts and move the engine around slightly to allow putting the new belt on between the pulley and it's surrounding sheet metal. Once the belt was on, and before any other steps, I realigned the engine mounting holes and replace the bolts.

The belt is then run around the pulleys under the middle section of the tractor. Leave the spring loaded idler pulley for last. you might need to loosen (not remove) the bolt that goes through the idler pulley in order to get the belt on. The biggest fight is pulling the spring loaded pulley over so that you can put the belt onto it.

Once the belt is fully routed over all pulleys. Reinstall everything that you had to remove - and you should be good-to-go.

ONE LAST COMMENT: Many shops sell belts that DON'T have Kevlar. Make sure you but the one WITH Kevlar. The others rarely last one season.

Need to find a repair manuel for a husqvana model hu775h

Remove the blade. Remove the plastic cover by removing the bolt on the underside and two bolts on the top of the deck. To get the belt off, you will need to remove the bolts from the plastic shroud in front of the drive, rotate the drive downward to access the two bolts holding the metal plate that prevents the belt from coming off the pulley. Then you can remove the belt.

I found that my belt was so worn that it would come off the main drive shaft.

Hope this helps.

The drive belt on my husqvarna yth20k46 is off at the pulley above the transmission. How do I get it back on? Do I have to remove the nut at the transmission shaft?

I would remove the nut and pulley. Get belt top of pulley. Start the edge of belt in broove on pully and run it around. You get easyer belt in pulley and install it. May have pull little against spring.

You will need to take off he main pulley. I did this by knocking in a wood wedge between the drive pulley and the deck and clamping on some molegrips so the pulley did not go round when undoing the nut at the bottom other wise the motor turns, Undo the nut anticlockwise as usual. The pulley assembly then drops down so you can remove the drive belt
