    belt number is 194346 from sears the mower is a 46 inch cut craftsman. I think a 3500 dsl thanks

  • dvance0917 Jun 18, 2009

    model number for the mower is 917.287130

    I'm sorry, but the number printed on the side of the mower isn't the model number. That is on a tag under the seat. Without that number I can't access the mower's parts or diagrams.

    Also, check that you don't have the lever in the engaged position. That will make it seem short.

    What is the model number and belt number you bought?

You have the wrong belt. The one for your deck drive is # 405143. The belt you have is for the ground drive.

Cub Cadet LTX 1050 50 inch. How do I get the deck belt over the PTO?


A common problem:
Make sure that:
1) You have the right belt if it's a replacement.
2) The mower control is in the "DO NOT CUT" or "NOT ENGAGED" position.
3) The tension idler has fully retracted.

How do I get the deck drive belt on?


If the belt seems to short most of the time you only have to push the pedal in that makes the mower drive pulleys closer together.
This makes the belt slide over the pulleys and when you release the pedal the belt is tight and drives the mower.

My deck belt broke and I am unable to measure it to buy a new one. How many inches is the deck belt for a craftsman 1000?


If you don't have the broken belt, and you don't want to buy 2 or 3 wrong belts. Go to a lawn and garden supply company or sears and buy it by model number of the mower. Then when you have the new one, find the numbers on the belt, and write them down. http://www.searspartsdirect.com or

I need a belt diagram for Craftsman LT 2000 42 inch deck.


Look under the "running boards" Sears(AYP) sometimes put them under there. If not, go to www3.sears.com, type in your 917.xxxxxx model number and the pictures will show you an exploded view of the belt configurations

How do replace a belt on a simplicity lawn tractor 36''cut 4211-h


Lower the deck all the way down. Loosen the set screw on the collar thats on the shaft with the spring around it. After you put on the belt, readjust the collar so you have a 3/8 inch gap when you engage the pto handle.
