    Keith - thank you very much-this is Kari. Any idea where I can find an owners manual? I can't recall how the belt went on. The one that broke went around 4 'pulleys' - hate to buy a new one just to tear it up

  • k_long38 Jul 01, 2009

    Thanx once again Keith. You have helped alot. Know any reason why it cuts out on me? If I turn the mowing deck off it is fine. But sometimes when I am mowing it wants to cut out - turn the mower deck off and it runs fine. Changed the fuel filter - been acting funny since

I need to replace a belt on a craftsman with a 42" deck.What size belt should I get.What length.


Craftsman is made by Murray Corp. who also makes Murry, YardMan, Lowes, Penncraft, and on and on. Go to your local Wal-Mart, Lawn and Garden Dept. and look for the belt that fits the Murray, YardMan, Lowes, Toro, 42" Deck 14-18 HP. Or take your old belt with you, and stretch them both end to end holding the end loops with each hand. Or you could go to Sears and just tell the parts department what your mower is and they can get you a Craftsman belt. It will be the same one you get at Lowe's, Wal-Mart, ect, probably just cost a little more. Sears doesn't make mowers, they just have their colors and names put on by the manufactorer. And Murray of Ohio is the maker of these.

Mowing deck pullies, mounting and spring application.


Download the product manual from the Sears website. Murray manufactured these tractors so you can download the manual from the Murray website also. Procedure for replacing the mower deck belt is quite simple. No need to remove the deck. Spring location also on diagrams. Mower deck parts diagram breaks down the whole assembly. Easier way to remove pulleys is using an impact wrench, otherwise hold the blade while removig the nut that holds the pulley in place. Use a heavy glove to hold the blade for safety!
