SOURCE: How do I replace the Drive Belt on a Craftsman

You need to get underneath the mower.Look in the front on the bottom of the engine.You will see the engine pulley.On the side of the pulley you will see a bracket that keeps the belt from falling off the pulley.It is help on by two bolts.Take the bracket off.Now you will be able to take the belt off.
Reinstall the new belt and replace the bracket.

Craftsman 42 in Deck Lawn Tractor jerks/bucks when in forward during turns. Is there an adjustment or do I need a new belt?


Sounds like to me you need a new belt! The belt is automatically tensioned by a spring on most mowers by MTD, the major mfr for most mowers including craftsman.

My craftsman tractor wont pull itself up a hill. Runs fine but just comes to a stop when trying to go up a hill. Maby the ground drive belt is slipping????


Sounds like your drive belt is slipping alright. Need to tighten your clutch rod. One end of rod adjust. Have someone help you, move the clutch petal and your helper watch and see rod moves.

I have a craftsman gt6000 18hp kohler garden tractor. I has been working fine, but last week I noticed a loud single click when i turn on the ignition and a loud single click when i turn off the ignition....


The noise is likely coming from the starter solenoid which is the heavy duty relay that sends battery power to the starter motor. If this is the case clean the wire connections going from the battery, to the solenoid and to the starter and try it again.
