Is it possible to tighten a loose belt on my cub cadet RZT-54 ZERO TURN RIDER.model number 17AFCACK009


HI,
I assume you are reffering to the mower deck pulley...however, the belt that drives the two hydraulic motors work the same way as deck pulley system.
First, there is no manual adjustment on the pulley system. Rather there is a spring loaded pivot arm to which an idle pulley is fastened to. The spring pulls the pivot arm in such a way the it forces the idle pulley to keep the belt tight at all times. The same setup is used on the ground drive belt.
Sometimes these springs become disconnected or break so that no tension is placed on the belt to keep it tight.
Check the tensioner spring to ensure that it is connected properly and applying tension to the belt. Otherwise, you may have the incorrect belt installed, the belt is routed incorrectly or the belt may be stretched out and need replacing.
Here is a diagram to clarify, the spring is the dark black item;

Belt not turning


the pulley that the belt runs in may be loose-does it turn with the saft,or there may be a belt tensioner that is not tightening the belt-the tensioner is a pulley that has a spring connected to it-does the belt feel tight-cheers Denny

The lawn mower belt is to loose how do you tighten it


You don't tighten the belt, there is a idler pulley it's between the motor pulley and the blade pulley where the chute is.

This has a spring that keep tension on the belt, so either the spring is bad, or see if there is another slot for the spring to make it pull more, or you have the belt routing on wrong.

Your manual should show the belt track.

If you can't move the spring and the belt is correct, get a new tension spring.

And clean off that deck, LOL

How do i tighten the timing belt tension on a 1999 dodge stratus


The belt tensioner is not adjustable. To loosen a tensioner you would swivel the belt tensioner away from the belt with a long flex wrench or ratchet and to tighten the belt you would let the spring in the tensioner move the swivel back into the tight position. An internal spring tightens the tensioner pulley against the belt. You will need to get a smaller belt or replace the tensioner if the belt is "too loose" after you swivel it back into the tight position against the belt and release pressure.

Getting a 'squealing' noise from the engine all the time. What is the cause likely to be??


Depending on the model it could be a belt alignment problem, loose belt or bad bearing in a pulley. If the squeal gets louder if you spray water in the area of the pulley it is most likely a loose belt. I would start by looking at the belt itself first then spray WD-40 in the bearing area of the Idler pulley and tensioning pulley. If the WD-40 works the problem is a bad bearing. Otherwise it is again, most likely, a loose belt. As a final check you can spray belt dressing on the belt and if the squeal goes away then it is your belt being loose. This could be caused by a belt being stretched over time or a tensioner not working correctly due to a weak spring, if equipped with spring loaded tensioner. If it doesn't have a spring loaded tensioner then you may just need to tighten the belt by adjusting it.

The belt on my Chamberlain Whisper Drive dipping


Where the belt attaches to the trolley carriage which attaches to the door there is a black adjustment nut with a spring on it. Tighten it up more by turning it clockwise until the belt tightens up. The belt will droop a little when the door is all the way shut normally but should not during operation. If you tighten it up too much the belt will slap on the rail during operation. Make sure the spring is set on the adjustment screw too. This holds the belt tight over time. Thanks BB

Tighten belts on my Yard machine ride on lawn mower


There is rarely any adjustment to tighten the belts on a riding mower. The belts are tensioned by an idler pulley which is controlled by a idler pulley spring. Almost all riding mower belts must be accurate to the hundredth of an inch or no less than accurate to 1/8th inch. It is very rare for a belt to be in full inch increments. This is why automotive or general purpose belts will not work on a riding mower. I know it is tempting to try to get by with a $10 belt rather than spending $35 or more for the correct belt. Trust me, you will only waste your money trying to get by with the inferior belts. Riding mower belts and extra heavy duty and generally will not stretch at all. Generally they will have 5 or more strands of a Kevlar type material so that stretching is virtually non existent. If the belt will not tighten then it is most likely not the correct belt. If the belt is in fact the proper belt and still is too loose, then you should look for pulley wear or weak tension springs. Metal pulleys do wear and tension spring do loose tension.
