Question about Garden
One side of belt seem to be looser than the other. when I press on right side belt (if I am sitting on mower its my right) it only will press 1/4 inch. But the left one presses in about 1 inch. Is the correct tension on belt?
Most modern lawn mowers including ZTRs all using an automatic belt tension system; ie spring load idler pulleys. The only time you need to check the belt is when your are having problem and most time the belt will need replacing due wear or physical damage.

You may find that you have the wrong belt - I bought a belt for the correct model and then found that there are two different sizes depending on the exact model - they are 3 inches different in length for my model CTH160 113" and 110". Got correct belt and fits properly now.

Lift the seat up and look for (rods) that run from the pump to the control sticks. There is a jam nut on these treaded rods, one for each hydro unit, use a marker and mark the position of the jam nut on the rod on the slow side, left you said. loosen the jam nut and turn the treaded rod a couple of turns one direction, then try the mower and see if it is faster on that side or slower, if it is slower then turn the treaded rod the oppisite direction that you just turned, If it is faster then it was before then adjust the rod till it is the same speed as the other side is. Tighten jam nut.

You need to adjust the tracking knob which is by the front handle that looks like a triangle head screw. Make sure the belt tension leaver is tight and the belt has enough tension on it. Quickly press and release the start switch and note the centering of the belt. It should be in the center of the bottom platen. If it is not, adjust the tracking knob and bump the switch again. If the belt is going in the wrong direction turn the knob the other direction. Once you are close the center of the platen, press the power switch to turn the unit on and lock the trigger. Firmly hold the unit vertically from the front handle. Fine adjust the tension knob to center the belt and make sure the belt is not hitting the case which will cause damage. You should be able to use the belt sander without the belt slipping off. Let the sander do the work, do not push down and limit the side to side motion. If the belt will not stay on then the belt is too large or the torsion spring needs to be adjusted to applying more tension on the belt and drive roller.
