Question about Mtd LAWN MOWER PART # 753-0698 KIT-DECK 42" NEW S
I have replaced idler pulley and belts with original factory belts on my MTD lawn mower model 13am675g062.It looks as if the front drive belt is not turning at the variable speed pulley, all belts are new, i think the belt from the factory is to long. It will move but as you shift into higher gears it creeps to a halt, any ideas?
The front belt should be a 954-0280A, rear 954-0370. When you go to higher gears, the front belt should be getting tighter as the vari-speed pulley is moving further back. Remove the shift plate, put the transmission in neutral. Start the engine, put speed selector in highest gear and slowly let out on the clutch. You should be able to see what the problem is. It will do everything the same as if were in gear, except move. Make sure you have the correct belts.

I got the same mower, and I had the same problem when I replaced the rear drive belt today. It's probably a good idea to replace both drive belts at the same time, because of the variable diameter pulleys, if one belt is worn thinner than the other, this could change the intended ratios.
However, I have noticed after running the mower around the yard for 30 minutes, the higher gears are working better. The variable speed pulley is a clever design, it can't hurt to oil the bearings, but you probably don't want to WD40 the actual belts.
