SOURCE: Replaced transmission on my John

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

This is a generic response to all John Deere Variator linkages but most likely what you must do with a transmission change.

To adjust the "Variator linkage" do the following.
1. Pry off the buttons on the side that cover the access holes located just below the variable speed lever.
2. Put the variable speed lever in notch #5.
3. Loosen cap screw one or two turns. This is located inside the hole.
4. Disconnect and ground the spark plug.
5. Turn ignition key to crank engine until clutch-brake pedal raises as high as it will go.
6. Take up linkage slack by pushing down on cap screw (see step #2). Tighten cap screw.
NOTE: If the tractor won't move with the variator in the first notch after these adjustments then the primary drive belt needs to be replaced.

I am concerned that maybe you did not connect the linkage properly but you have to do the above steps if no matter what you do you only have slow speeds.

I hear that on the service manual and the springs. Take a look at these decks if you talking about a deck belt and find yours. Then look for the spring routing visually.

If you need drive belt info look here:

I would like to know if this was enough info for you so that you were able to re-connect the spring.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

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 tension on belt of John Deere Ride On D140


How to adjusted Cutting Deck Belt Tension

You do not say which size cutting deck you have. I will be writing about the 48", 3 blade cutting deck

The belt on this deck is self tensioned. The tension is provided by a spring attached to a moveable pulley on the deck. When the belt is in place you can manually force this pulley forward/backward and it will release the tension.

If the belt is off track, place the belt back around all the pulleys in the correct path, lastly force this spring loaded pulley forward/backward (depending on your deck, the direction is not important, the tension is) to get the belt around the pulley. If the belt is placed correctly, when you release the spring loaded pulley it will properly tension the belt.

Typically, these belts should not be jumping off. If yours is coming off frequently the belt may be worn. When they wear they get quite a bit longer, then the tension pulley cannot apply the correct tension. Rarely does the tension spring have to be replaced.

The other problem that causes belt jumping is worn spindles and stationary pulleys. The spindles are the most likely to need replacement. You can buy excellent replacements for JD spindles on Amazon for very reasonable prices. The following spindles are super replacement spindles for the 48" deck. They may very well be the same for smaller and larger decks; I have not researched that. Just search Amazon for Silver Streak # 285851.

What makes a john deer rx75 mower buck in fowerd not reverse? belts are new


An RX75 bucking as you describe is usually caused buy one of several things. #1 make sure brake pedal returns to disengaged position.Check the brake linkage and add or change a spring as needed. Check for debris clogging the brake pad assembly too.
#2 the speed control linkage roller cam attachment bolt has loosened over time. To correct, drive unit foward in 5th gear and stop with clutch pedal while on level ground. Kill the engine.Lift seat and find on left side the black rod with a funny U cut into it at the end. Its below the red throttle handle. There is a roller cam which rides in the U cut. Looosen the bolt holding the roller cam, let it find its own new position ( maybe just a couple mm ) and re-tighten bolt again. (One side of the U cut cam controls your speed in foward, the other side, while in reverse. Hope this helps.

My rx75 runs well but will not engage the deck is it electronic?


The mower deck is 100% manually controlled with the yellow control handle. The linkage may be out of adjustment a lot, especially if new belts are now broken in. When engaged, the blade drive belt should be quite taunt,but not like a banjo string. Adjustment is easy and can be found on the operators manual.

John deere l118 belt adjustment


There are two things to check first. First is that you have the right belt on there and it is not worn. Second would be that all the springs are on the proper tensioning pulleys under the deck. After that then you need to look for an adjustable pulley that is manually tightened and held in place by a bolt. That will be your idler. You will also want to check the track of the belt to make sure nothing is bent.

I have a john deere rx75 and having a problem with mower belt coming off and breaking help it never did this before


The belt most likely is ready to be replaced, the only other adjustment you could make is to adjust the tension arm and move it closer to the belt to add tension when the clutch is engaged.
