Take off the shift plate between you legs, put it in nuetral, crank up the engine, put speed lever in high gear and slowly let off on the clutch. Everything will work as if in gear, it just won't move. you should be able to see what the problem is. Which belt did you replace and why? Watch the varible speed pulley (the one both belts go around). The bearings may be bad in it and not letting it turn, thus, smoking the front belt.

May sound stupid, but from experience, double check the routeing of your belts. Make sure they are under the belt guards where applicable. Been there and done that!

Need to investigate, sounds like something is frozen on the belt system. Remove tension of belt and verify everything can turn freely unloaded..

Huskee LT 4200 modle 13aj771g031 how do I get the small rear drive belt to go on the pully


Set the brake/clutch. This will disengage the linkage that tensions the main drive belt, allowing you to put it on the pulley.

I hope this is helpful.
