How do I get the drive belt off of a simplicity regency mower? There doesn't appear to be a way to do this without removal of the main pulley and clutch. Is there a special tool required for this?

How do I tighten my drive belt on my simplicity lawn tractor because it keeps slipping off when I make left turns?


Check air pressure in your tires, and if you look around your deck pulleys you may find 1/4" adjustment bars that you can loosen and move in towards your pulleys. These bars, if you have them there, keep the belt from falling off. But my first suggestion should help you. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

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

When I put the power take-off lever to the on position, the mower deck belt smokes and it appears that the right hand blade wouldn,t move


You need to remove the belt driving the blades and check to see if the bearings in the blade pulleys are not frozen which I suspect is your problem. If you find a pulley is frozen then remove the mower deck from the mower so it will be easier to access and remove the pulleys.

My mower keeps throwing the drive belt. I have changed belts and the same thing happens. It is a Simplicity riding mower.


I would be taking a very close look at the drive belt pulleys and their bearings. If that is all good then replace the springs which maintain the tension. There is some extra slop in there somewhere allowing the belt to run out of the groove.

The belt dry rotted and flew off without me being able to remove it myself, now I need to know how to install the new drive belt.


To install the drive belt you will have to remove the drive belt first.
Follow the procedure: ---
Park the tractor on a level surface. Set the parking brake and remove the key from the ignition. Study the belt replacement guide decal located underneath the left foot board for proper belt routing instructions.
Remove the mowing deck by first moving the attachment clutch lever to the disengaged position (toward you). Move the attachment lift lever all the way forward to lower the mower housing to its down position.
Crawl beneath the tractor and roll the drive belt off engine pulley (it hangs directly beneath the engine). Remove small retainer clip that holds the clutch spring to the pulley bolt located at the center of the mowing deck. Remove the large retainer springs (two of them), then slide the belt collar away from the mower housing and off the housing bracket.
Disconnect the anti-sway bar rods from the chassis brackets by removing the retaining cotter pins. Disconnect front links from the mower deck by removing retaining cotter pins. Disconnect the suspension arms from the rear mower deck brackets by removing the two cotter pins.
Move the attachment lift lever all the way to the forward position to raise the mower suspension arms to the full up position. Slide the mower deck out from beneath the tractor.
Crawl beneath the tractor and roll the drive belt off of the stationary idler pulley and the clutching idler pulley. They are both located immediately adjacent to the engine pulley. Be sure the belt is already away from the engine pulley, as well.
Push the drive belt slack toward the rear of tractor. Remove the drive belt from the Trans axle pulley by taking it over the trans axle pulley while compressing the movable belt keepers surrounding it. Remove the old belt from the tractor by pushing it clear of the center span keeper (located beneath the Trans axle pulley).
Install a new drive belt by following the reverse of the instructions for removal. Test the tractor and mower for normal operation.
 Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

You don't need to remove the any lever linkages but you will need to remove some of the pulleys.If you can give an exact model number of the tractor it would help.

Without an impact, it's will be more difficult. The only way to get back-up on the bolt is to remove the screen over the flywheel on top and put a socket on the flywheel nut
