Need diagram for a poulan xt 30" belt route on deck .Belt keeps breaking shortly after changing I am beginning to think that all the gumballs from the gum trees may breaking it is that possible


Two things first if it just keep breaking..the most probable cause would be the belt on one the spindle or drive pulley " on engine " is routed around most of the pulley then over the belt keeper instead of on the pulley grove..or the keepers are way out of adjustment the keepers have sharp edges on the outside and will tear up a belt in no time...as for the routing most are simple and follow the same procedure,,first look at all the pulleys on the mower deck...there are two kinds the drive and idlers..the drivers are attached to the engine and spindle where the blades and have deep v shape and have on or two belt keepers attached very close on the deck..the others are idlers including the tensioner that engages the belt and keep tension,,they do not have v they are flat with two small right angle edges to keep the belt straight they are designed to ride on the flat back side of the pulley..first detirmine the rotation of the pulleys the starting at the engine drive pulley place the belt in and follow to the first pulley in the direction of mowing all the way around the then operate the engage/disengage lever it will move the engage idler pulley..fit the belt on the flat side the locate others and do the same..you will need to play with it awile but you will find the route...just remember when you do route it look for and adjust the belt keepers..they are there to keep the belt on when running disengaged...you know the results once off the pulley a torn up belt...this is long but i believe if you take your time it will help...good luck.

How to replace a idler pulley on a 1997 international 4700 series


Hi Melissa:
Nice truck!
I'm assuming that the bearings in the idler pulley are shot which is why you're replacin the pulley. Pulley's are typically attached by a bolt through their centre. Replacing the idler consists of getting the bolt out and exchanging new for old. Here's the route I would recommend:
SAFETY FIRST - Disconnect negative battery terminal.
- Make a diagram of belt routing.
- Slacken idler and remove belt
- Remove Idler retaing bolt (Watch for washers or spacers)
- Install new Idler with washers or spacers in same position.
- Tighten retaining bolt.
- Use diagram to re-install belt;
- Re-connect negative battery terminal.
- Check for stray tools or loose objects.
Test run.

What is the belt diagram from the deck to the motor for a mower?


1st, Unplug the Dryer from the Power Supply.
You will need the Exact recommended Replacement "Idler Pulley".
With the Belt Ribs Facing Toward the Dryer Drum, position the belt on the tell tale Ring Mark on the Drum letting the Belt Hang Down below the Drum.
Place The New Idler Pulley into the Slots on the Inside Dryer Bottom located near the Motor Mounted Pulley.
(Face The Idler Pulley Toward The Motor Mounted Pulley)
(Hold the Idler Pulley in place in the slots)
Take the "Hanging Belt" & run the Whole Loop "UNDER" the Idler Pulley & then
Attach the "Belt Loop" "AROUND" The Motor Mounted Pulley.
That should do it.
Put the rest of the Dryer Back Together...Done!
Good Luck,
Vinnie

Changing the belt


goes around idler pulley and motor. idler pulley fits into slots on bottom of dryer and the belt tension holds it in place. looking at it from the front and going clockwise the belt goes around the drum and then around the motor pulley and thru the idler pulley. in fact if you put the bottom loop of the belt thru the pulley from the left you then loop it around the motor pulley.

Need to replace drive belt on cutting deck and


You will have to disconnect the deck from the tractor. There might be some rods hanging down by the pulley on the motor. You have to loosen those not remove. Then install the new belt with the inside of belt (V) into the pulleys. The outside of belt (flat side) goes up against any idlers (oversized pulleys). Once you get the belt routed properly the belt will be snug in the pulleys. If you have excess play you have to use trial and error to get the belt routed the right way around the idlers.
Once belt is on reattach the deck and tighten the rods by the motor that keeps the belt from coming off. They need to be close but not touching the engine pulley.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.

I am installing a new belt but the pulley that mounts to the ground i found was not attached and i am not posotive of its correct spot i need a diagram


The idler pulley goes in front of motor shaft. There is two slits in sheet metal where it slides in. after pulley is on. put the belt around drum and pinch belt together. put belt under idler wheel then put end on motor shaft. You can push up on idler pulley to get around motor.Make sure grooved side of belt is wrapped around drum. Good Luck!!

Serpantine belt broke


there is usally a diagram on either the hood or the radiator core support. now to loosen something there is a idler pulley with a 3/8" drive end in the center of it that will allow you to move the pulley against the tensioner to put the belt on

To replace a worn belt, locate the idler or generator pulley.

Loosen the hold-down fastener for the idler or generator pulley.

0900823d8004ed46.jpg


Pry the idler or generator pulley inward to release the belt tension and remove the belt.

Match the old belt up for size with the new replacement belt.

Observe the belt routing diagram in the engine compartment.

Install the new belt over each of the drive pulleys. Often the manufacturer recommends a sequence for feeding the belt around the pulleys.

Install the belt squarely in the grooves of each pulley.

Before adjusting belt tension, check for proper pulley alignment. This is especially critical with serpentine belts. Measure the belt deflection in its longest span. If a belt tension gauge is available, use it and compare the tension to specifications.
If a belt is too tight, wear to bearings for the water pump, alternator, and engine crankshaft can result.
Some late-model Chrysler engines require a torque reading to be taken when tension is applied to the generator drive belt. This is especially important on the longer, multiribbed V-belts.

Pry the idler or generator pulley to adjust the belt to specifications.

0900823d8004ed77.jpg


Tighten the idler or generator pulley fastener.

0900823d8004ed78.jpg


Start the engine and check the belt for proper operation.

Any more questions please ask. Good luck.
