Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I replaced a broken deck belt last year with a belt for a 42" deck from Sears Hardware. Ever since, every time I disengage the clutch the belt spins off the front pulley. when the clutch is engaged, the tension on the belt is good so it doesnt seem like i have the wrong size belt.
I assume you mean the engine pulley by "front pulley"? Is the belt guide still in place? It bolts to the side of the frame and runs out to the engine pulley to hold the belt on when it's disengaged. Sound like your's may be missing/broken off
