Question about Craftsman YT 4000 42" Briggs Stratton 24 hp Gas Powered Riding Lawn Tract
YT4000 Model 917.288573 We did a tune-up over the weekend and installed a new Primary motor belt on the mower deck. Now the blades do not engage, the belt is loose on the engine pulley. We leveled the deck, and the front to back adjustment was off by almost 2 inches higher in the back. I am wondering if the distance that we pulled up the deck in the front was enough to make the belt loose.
I am wondering if you have the right belt for that machine. or possible its not installed properly.The belt should be tight when engaged. The tightener may not be working as well. These are things to check. Does the belt try to tighten up when you engage it?
I am wondering if the wrong belt was the reason why some one lowered the deck too low.

Try pulling on the cable coming down to deck. This cable might be your problem. Also check that the spring on the end of this cable is present and functional.
