Question about Garden
I want to know how to change the upper v belt (clutch to engine)on my cox ride on. I can change the deck belt, but cannot work out how to get the belt onto the top pulley.
Not to find any online IPL that I can access from here in the USA so I have no idea of how the drive belt is routed.
If it has an electric PTO clutch then you need to remove it so you can drop the engine pulley down to get belt off and on as the upper belt retainers will prevent you doing so if not done. If just a double stack pulley you will probably still need remove the retaining bolt so you drop the pulley as above.

SOURCE: Installing mower belt
The pulley at a wierd angle is the tension pulley. You may get the manual on line for free if you are lucky but not all mower manufacturers are that generous. What kind of mower do u have?

If you can find the model number sticker on the back of the tractor, somewhere around or under the seat (it will be formatted like this 123456x7y) then go to www.murray.com ,put in your model number it should come up and you can download and print and/or save it. If you can't find the model number, there isn't much else available for help.

Even though the routing is correct, have you checked that every spindle and idler pulley turns freely? These bearings can freeze up or bind because debris builds up in them. Also, if the bushings on the idler pulleys can wear, causing them to misalign. Keep checking. Also - is the belt snapping clean, or do you see a burnt, worn spot?

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. The belt is snapping clean. You are correct in your assessment to what the problem might be. We checked all the above and did not correct problem. We put three washers on top of small idler pulley to bring it down and better align routing. Bought heavier belt at auto parts. Believe the bolt head was touching belt where it routed throught to larger idler pulley."
