I am not positive but there may not be any adjustment for the belt. I have had a number of ridding mowers and none of them had a adjustment for the belt. If it is slipping it is most likely worn and needs to be replaced. The ones that I have worked on do have a spring loaded pulley that keeps the belt tight. It is possible that you don't have tension on the belt maybe spring is weak or broken. Hope this helps

Is there a way to tighten the belt?


Don, there is usually a spring loaded tensioner to do this, the belt may be stretched and needs replaced, or some pulleys actually are now wear items and may need replaced. Check the video links below, some models are adjustable.

How to adjust tighten drive belt on Poulan riding mower with 18 hp b&s motor 42 deck


Probably needs a new belt.You can buy a belt dressing and spray the belt once in a while. Its a special sticky spray for belts that slip.
That will keep you going for a little while.

I have a 2011 cub cadet ltx1040 with 42 inch mower deck. replaced belt, pto cable and spindle brake pads. Belt is still loose when pto engaged and cannot find any adjustment to tighten belt. All parts...


If all the parts are correct then you need to check the belt routing diagram. Sometimes you can find it on the mower deck and in the owners manual. Look carefully at the spring locations on the deck to be sure there correct. George

Replaced deck belt and it keeps coming off,whats wrong?


The belt tensioners on top of the deck need adjusted, or you make have to adjust the pulleys to tighten the belt. Sometimes if you have the deck lowered to low to the ground, uneven terain can cause that. If you have everything adjusted correctly, simply raise the deck another notch and mow.

I need to tighten belt for the mower deck, how is that done? it is a 2004 craftsman 17.5HP 42 " deck. Can you help me


Each of the pulleys on top of the deck should have tensioners. These tensioners are usually the type which have a bolt for you to tighten while attached to the pulley. While you tighten the bolt, the pulley puts tension on the belt.

Trying to put a new drive train belt on my sit on murray lawn mower


Drive belts can be a pain. You are going to have to drop the deck belt out of the way and sometimes drop the front of the deck to be able to get the belt up around the front pulley. Feed it through the belt guards if possible...if not, you are going to have to loosen or remove the guards to get the belt where it is needed. Then loop around rear pulley, tighten guards, hook up deck and replace deck belt.

How to replace deck belt on lt 1000 craftsman riding mower


there are several belt guards that you will need to loosen then the belt will slip right on. having someone hold the clutch will make it easier, and the belt diagram should be on the deck. If not, these are common mowers, so a search for this or a friends/neighbors mower may hold the answer. Be sure to re tighten all guards or your belt will pop off and wear out very fast against these metal parts
