Refer to brake pad arm assembly :I don't understand what keeps the brake pads from always riding on the idler pulleys. the springs keep them against the pulleys.


Hi, the spring on the brake rod pulls the lever forward when the brake is applied and a short lighter gauge spring pulls the lever back. This spring may be missing. Regards Phil.

I bought a new belt for my2005 lt 1000 42" deck


for a deck no.. Most everything on the deck is done by springs.. what i would do is look at the deck make sure nothing is rubbing the belt making it rip apart.. or make it to not engage.. i would with the engine off engage the blade and disengage the blade make sure all the brakes are pulling away from the pulleys and making sure all the arms are moving to tighten the belt.. if nothing is moving then i double check the cable or however engages the deck (all mowers are different) and if need the part. If the cable is not broken and is still on deck make sure all springs are lubed. If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

The brake lever has a hole in it as you must have found the other end attaches to a finger bracket that sticks up from the mow deck.

Where does the blade brake spring attach on an MTD 42 inch deck with manual PTO? One end connects to the blade brake pivot arm, but the manual is unclear as to where the anchor point is.


the other end goes on the pulley engagement swingarm so when you turn the blades on the spring pulls the blade brake away from the blade pulley so the blade can turn. hope this helps

Spring is broken


There are many springs on a riding mower. Is it the clutch spring, the idler pulley spring, or maybe the blade brake springs. There are also springs on the brakes and even under the set. Please be more specific.
