SOURCE: How do you tighten PTO belt?

i had a similar problem with my mower right after i bought it. my belt was just loose enough to be a pain on cutting i bought a larger pully with the same belt groove and center hole as the one on my deck but in a larger diameter and replaced a pulley on the side(easiest to get to) the belt is still going but does need to be replaced. Keep your original pulley so when you buy a new belt you can swap it back

A PTO that is engaged constantly,


On that type PTO engagement there is slack in the belt that disengages the deck, in some case there is a arm with a idler pulley that swings against the belt to tighten it and engages the deck , in other cases like older MTD:s the deck swung backwards as it was let down and tightened the belt and was lifted to turn it off. Most of the decks had a brake of some kind on the deck pulleys to stop freewheeling of the blades when disengaged .

How to i change the drive train belt on my cub cadet z force 50


  1. First park your mower on level ground and apply the parking brake.
  2. Remove the deck drive belt from the PTO clutch.
  3. Remove the electric PTO clutch. This is done by disconnecting the electrical wires first. Then removing the center bolt using an impact wrench. A pull bar can used but you must prevent the engine from turning by blocking the flywheel.
  4. Remove the tension on the drive belt idler.
  5. Remove the drive belt from around the pulleys. Be careful as the engine may try fall off depending on if it isn't seized on yet.
  6. Installation is the reverse of the above instructions.
  7. After install the PTO clutch tighten the center bolt to 55 ft lbs using a torque wrench (not your impact wrench) with the flywheel blocked from moving.

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

Pto stopped working on areins tractor.


It sounds like your switch is working. Other issues might be a belt that jumped it's track and isn't tight when the tensioner tightens up, or a belt that has stretched beyond working limits, or a bad PTO clutch. You could also have a bad spot in the wire that heads to the pto clutch.

How do I change the belt on my ammco 4000 lathe?


I am a brake lathe technician.

To change the drive belt on an Ammco 4000, you must first remove the 90 degree angle PTO (power take off) gear assembly which is driven off the back of the big pulley. Two small allen head screws hold it tight.

Pull the PTO gear assembly out of the disc-feed gearbox. If there are colored shims between the gearbox and the PTO assembly, you must make sure not to loose. If they drop off, be sure to replace them with a dab of grease.

Rotate the red knob at the back of the machine and the motor assembly will unlock and rotate upwards. Replace the drive belt.

To adjust the drive belt tension properly--loosen the 3/4 inch nut on the back of the machine, and the motor will drop down. Tighten the 3/4 inch nut and then rotate the red knob back until the belt is taught.

Replace the PTO gear assembly--making the rotating part with the protruding pin is centered on the big pulley. Tighten the allen head cap screws.

Turn on the machine. If the PTO is making noise--you have not correctly is correctly. Repeat the centering process until the machine runs without rattling or vibration.

Another possibility, is a broken spring or a tight/ rusted idler pivot arm.
with the engine off & the deck down, engage the pto & pull on the belt to see which pulley is the tensioner

PTO won't engage


If you look where your belt goes around the pulley on your pto, you will see your pto clutch. There are bolts with springs that hold everything together. Try tightening them 1/4 turn and then try it. If it still doesn't work, tighten it another quarter turn. There is a magnet there that might not be contacting properly. I have a 1605 and just had the same problem. You don't want to have to replace it , mine is like $400
