Can you show me the correct diagram for the drive belt on a 44in Dixon zero turn mower


Hope this helps. Serpentine Blade Drive Belt
1 Lower the mower deck to its lowest position.
2 Route the serpentine blade drive belt (part number 6109) onto the V-pulleys located on the mower deck. One double pulley is located at the front of the deck near the center. The other two pulleys are located near each side of the deck. Route the belt around the outside -- the side toward the outer edge of the mower deck -- of each pulley. For the double pulley near the front of the deck, route the belt around the lower pulley (part number 6058) only. If pulleys are fitted with belt guards, work the belt in between the pulley and shield.
3 Push the idler pulley toward the center of the deck with your hand. The idler pulley (part number 6059) is the fourth pulley on the deck and is located near the rear of the deck. It is the only movable pulley on the deck. Wrap the belt around the side of the pulley nearest the edge of the deck. Release the idler pulley to place tension on the belt. No adjustment is necessary because the serpentine idler spring (part number 6065), located on the idler pulley, adjusts the belt to the correct tension.

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

Belt drive diagram for ford rt5


Exploded view of rototiller available at New Holland website.. Area with decals has belt path diagram.
http://partstore.agriculture.newholland.com/us/parts-search.html#epc::mr55011ar111419
Belt goes around motor pulley and tiller pulley and above idler pulley, which is in the middle. When putting belt on, it is easiest to put around motor pulley first and tiller pulley (the large one) last. Belt is 3/8" x 27" v-belt. Idler pulley is available too, only under Lawn Boy part number, which is found on parts list at New Holland site. Just had to perform repair. All parts found on ebay.
Hope this helps!

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.

I need to see a belt routing diagram for a Scotts Mower


This is for a Scotts 1642. Picture yourself sitting on the mower looking down at the deck. Starting at the tractor pulley, the belt runs from the right side of this pulley to the left side of the tension arm pulley, around this pulley to the left side of the right hand side mower blade pulley, around this pulley, across the deck to the smaller left hand side idler pulley, then up to the left hand side mower blade pulley, around this pulley to the second (larger) idler pulley, around this pulley and back to the left side of the tractor pulley. If you make a small sketch of the deck pulley arrangement it will be easier. Keep in mind some of the pulleys are for the "V" side of the belt and some (The tension arm pulley & larger idler pulley) are for the flat side of the belt. Be sure the belt is not twisted and lays in a continuous circle with the "V" side of the belt on the inside before you start.

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.
