Question about Mtd Garden
This lawn tractor was left from the old owners of the house, and it all works except the deck belt is not on it. I have the belt and it look in good condition but cannot work out how it goes on. It seems far too long!

if i am thinking of the right model you may be able to get away with first taking off the blade, then to remove the deck should be a number of bolts under the chassis and on top of the deck where it meets the frame... you can get your parts here if your having trouble finding them

I have the exact same model MTD tractor with same problem. It began when the bolt that extends through the idler arm assembly broke and subsequently damaged the pulley. Upon examination of the broken bolt, I found that the threaded end that extends below the deck is significantly smaller that the rest of the bolt. I got a larger bolt with the same size threads, bored out the hole through the deck and it made the whole idler assembly much stronger. the deck still has some vibration and some unusual belt harmonics, but it appears to be working. Compared to most other tractors of this size, this deck is very complicated.

Go to... http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action Enter the model number that is under the seat. If it's a lawn tractor, it will start with 917. That will get you to all the diagrams of the mower.
