    Need a model number to help,but there is usually a sticker in the deck that diagrams the belt placement and also a stick under the running board that is for the ground drive belt.

    This is a basic approach to finding parts or diagrams. You might also check out Handy335's answer below. Tony, you would go to one of the sites below and enter that into the search engine. To find the proper part or diagram, look on the mower chassis or the deck of the mower for a small plaque/sticker. The plaque will have the model number and possibly the S/N. Find the model number and write it down. THen go to SearsPartsDirect.com or ereplacementparts.com and search by the model number you previously wrote down. I usually go to ereplacementparts since I find their search easier to use. Their distribution center in SLC, UT is also close by so I can stop by and pick up parts out of will call saving me the cost of shipping.
    Here is a good article on how to find the model number for several different manufactureshttp://www.ereplacementparts.com/article... You may have to copy and paste this URL into your browser for it to work. Once you find the model number enter it into the search box and click enter. Select the correct item from those presented and click on the "View diagram and Parts list" button. You can enter "the name of the part" into the search box or browse through the various diagrams to find the information you are looking for. Once you find it you can order it there or copy and paste the part number into your browser's search engine to try and find a better price. You may have to do this a number of times since there are many cases where different manufactures use the same part in different machines. Good luck and good parting.

This is the best and only halfway decent diagram I could find. However, it's fairly intuitive when you look at the mower deck up close: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fP0102111-00010.png

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Here is the diagram:
http://www.brandywineits.com/graphics/LT1000/PulleyConfig.jpg

One of the major problems on the LT 1000 is that the belt gets installed wrong side out. Just make sure the V of the belt rests in all of the mandrel and drive pulleys correctly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

SOURCE: I need a belt diagram for Craftsman LT 2000 42

Look under the "running boards" Sears(AYP) sometimes put them under there. If not, go to www3.sears.com, type in your 917.xxxxxx model number and the pictures will show you an exploded view of the belt configurations

SOURCE: how to replace deck belt on lt 1000 craftsman

there are several belt guards that you will need to loosen then the belt will slip right on. having someone hold the clutch will make it easier, and the belt diagram should be on the deck. If not, these are common mowers, so a search for this or a friends/neighbors mower may hold the answer. Be sure to re tighten all guards or your belt will pop off and wear out very fast against these metal parts

SOURCE: belt diagram for deck belt

From the pulley under the engine, take both sides an go straight back, between the two pulleys in the forward inside position, go past them and then out to the blade pulleys around the front of the pulleys and to the outside and then the back and then across the back. If you are looking down from above from the seat, "looking through the mower" you would see an inverted T shape.

I hope this helps get you going.

Lt 1000 new deck belt is smoking, is there a break-in period for new belts?


First, you need to check to make sure you have the belt on correctly. There needs to be a tensioner holding the belt in proper tension. I have had a few deck issues where a bearing is worn out and it could be smoking when the grease gets hot. See if you can get a diagram for the belt position and check your bearings and idlers. Also make sure it is cleaned out so that you don't have a lot of grass in there that could be burning and smoking.Good luck.

I bought a new belt for my2005 lt 1000 42" deck


for a deck no.. Most everything on the deck is done by springs.. what i would do is look at the deck make sure nothing is rubbing the belt making it rip apart.. or make it to not engage.. i would with the engine off engage the blade and disengage the blade make sure all the brakes are pulling away from the pulleys and making sure all the arms are moving to tighten the belt.. if nothing is moving then i double check the cable or however engages the deck (all mowers are different) and if need the part. If the cable is not broken and is still on deck make sure all springs are lubed. If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask
