Not likely a belt thing. Sounds like a bent blade, bent housing, bent spindle shaft. Perhaps something simple like a piece of metal or a rock jammed up in the housing.

  • Turn the key off and remove it from the machine.
  • Raise the housing up high enough to look everything over. Or maybe I should say to look everything under.
  • Rotate the blades to see where one might be hitting the housing or other object.

The belt usually does not contribute to clanking noises.

I need help putting rear end back together on a 10 hp30 Murray riding lawnmower


Safety and Preparation Serious injury can occur if the engine or mower blades accidentally start while you are working with lawn tractors. To prevent this, drive the Murray lawn tractor onto a flat work surface and disengage the mowing deck cutting blades. Engage the parking brake to keep the mower from moving; chock the wheels with a wooden block or brick. Adjust the mowing deck to the lowest position. Turn off the engine and remove the key from the ignition. While not necessary, you may even wish to disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Mowing Deck Removal You must remove the mowing deck on a Murray lawn tractor to gain access to the belts. Remove the adjustment rod hairpins, followed by the adjustment rod pins from the front left and right sides of the mowing deck. At the rear on the left and right sides, pull out the retaining hairpins and slide the mowing deck suspension links from the adjuster plates to separate the rear mowing deck from the frame. Remove the blade control rod stud, including the hairpin and washer, from the top of the blade control lever shift linkage at the left rear of the deck. Remove the front hanger rod, including the hairpin and flat washer that hold the rod in place. Loosen the belt guide retaining bolts with a socket wrench and remove the engine stack pulley belt so you can slide the mower deck out from under the tractor Transmission Drive Belt Installation Slide the new transmission drive belt between the engine stack pulley belt guides, over the belt guide plate and under the engine stack pulley. Fit the transmission drive belt around the top engine stack pulley. Push the free end of the transmission drive belt up through the transmission shifter hole in the lawn tractor floorboard. Slip the transmission drive belt loop over the transmission shifter. Pull the transmission drive belt down through the transmission shifter hole. Fit the transmission drive belt around the transmission drive pulley and tighten the transmission drive pulley belt guide retaining bolts to hold it in place. Fit the transmission drive belt flat side around the idler pulley. Slide the idler pulley onto the idler pulley stud while holding the belt in place. Tighten the transmission idler pulley retaining nut with a socket wrench to secure the idler pulley to the idler pulley stud. Mowing Deck Drive Belt Installation Pull back on the right side mowing deck mandrel pulley spring-tensioned belt retainer. Guide the new mowing deck drive belt around the right side mandrel pulley and release the belt retainer. Pull the drive belt spring-tensioned retainer away from the mowing deck idler pulley, guiding the deck drive belt around the idler pulley. Fit the mowing deck drive belt around the left side mandrel pulley and under the rear mowing deck cross link rod between the right and left side mandrel pulley. Slide the mowing deck under the right side lawn tractor frame, reconnecting the deck to the frame in reverse order of removal. Engage and disengage the mower deck while driving the mower to test the belt for proper operation.

My Husqvarna LGT 2554 deck hung up on high spot mowing. Turned off deck & mower pushed by hand. Engaged deck,started to mow, wound to stop. Belts fine. Pull up on knob to engage, you get nothing.


The engine runs but the blades do not engage? Make sure the wire connecting the electric clutch is still plugged in. If all is connected and the belt is really fine, there is a problem with either the electric clutch or PTO switch.

Clutch adjustment for engaging dec


You clutch is probably OK. This sounds like some binding in the mowing deck.

  1. Take off the deck.
  2. Clean the underside of the mowing deck.
  3. Remove the belt and be sure all the moving parts move freely. If something is bound, try to free it up with oil.
  4. Replace any bound up bearings. Bearing are a very high maintenance item on a mowing deck.
Good luck.

How do I determine why the blades will not engage on my mower


With the mower turned off and the deck at its lowest setting, check the top of the deck for any debris like rocks or sticks. Then watch the top of the deck while you move the engage lever. If nothing is moving, you either need to adjust the cable, reattach the cable, or install a new cable. If you see the lever with the pulley on it moving, when the engage lever is locked on, check the tightness of the belt. If it's loose, that is your problem and it could be a stretched belt.

Ride on mower can ride around but whe engage fanbelt for cutter motor stall no power but very thing does turn easy with hand


Sounds like your mower deck safety switch is bad..it is located near the end of the handle that engages the mower deck..try unhooking it and bypassing it with a wire or heavy paper clip...then try mowing if it mows that is your problem..the mower deck will,operate that way but is a safety switch..you need to get it replace,,easy to do yourself..good luck.

My deck mower(craftsman 917.271530)keeps shredding deck belts


You either have a bad bearing on one of the pulleys or one is loose and moving up and down drawing the belt when it is engaged. I would pull the mower deck off and go through it .

Have a 2000 Simplicity Landlord tractor with 54 inch mowing deck pull switch to engage deck and it will not engage, looking for answers thanks


Tou have a broken or loose deck belt. Not an easy DIY but medium and doable. Check the belt in the deck too (the one that makes both blades spin at the same time. This belt likely needs to be changed too.
