They did not manufacture the pulley correct. The pulley lip is to short. What u need to do is bend the belt keeper so it just touches the belt on the idler pulley. I remove the pulley and keeper and give it a good bend. Then I adjust it into the correct position after reassembly. It doesn't have to rub on the belt.... just very close. That will do it.

SOURCE: My Motion Drive Belt slipped

i had a 2148. you remove the mower deck as the first step. feed the belt over the pulley on top the transmission, then put it over the engine pulley. then have someone push the clutch pedal in so the tensioner pulley moves, put the belt in the guide pulley and on the tensioner. release the clutch put the deck back on and you are good to go. notice there are little keepers welded to the frame for the front, engine, pulley and it is easy to mistakenly put the belt over them instead of under them.

a general rule is that a pulley shaped like a Vee takes the V of the belt whilst a pulley which is flat takes the flat back of the belt. if you bear that in mind you will not have a problem putting belts back on. also there is a little decal on top the deck showing how the deck belt and deck drive belt go.

MOWER WONT MOVE


Drive belt broken or slipped of pulleys, hydrostatic drive filter(s) plugged. Should be one or those, Roger. Follow the drivebelt with your hand (disconnect battery to be safe) and see if it hasn't slipped off the engine drive pulley, idler pulleys, or axle pulley. If you tractor is hydrostat, may be time to replace filter.

Fix a motion drive belt squeals on a Craftsman 24 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model


If I understand the issue correctly, the belt that drives the machine's transmission squeals. When does it squeal? When engaging the clutch? When in motion?
Typically it's the condition of the belt. It's likely slipping due to stretch, wear or from an oil leak causing it to slip, or simply due to a loose idler pulley, worn idler pulley bearing, broken spring. Look for all that stuff. Look at the drive belt and inspect for wear, cracks, fraying, missing rubber, etc. Replace it if any of those conditions are found.

The motion belt keeps coming off the pulleys this ( Murry )


I think you need a new belt. maybe it's stretched to much now this will make it slip of. also clean the pulleys maybe oily or something.
