Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
This belt streching thingy is a made up fairy tale,that dealers want you to believe..so youll buy more belts...do belts really strech..?
ya..a little..but id bet your real culprit is the pulley..there is a tention spring that usually gets knocked out of place..or there is a build up of grass hindering its progess....your answer...no there is no adjustment...
drop your deck to its lowest setting and play around with that pulley till you see it getting tighter...then engage your deck blades(with the mower turned off)and move the pulley to free it from its off track position..take out the grass thats collecting in there also(dont roll it up and smoke it)
and you should be fine...good luck...ive been there..actually last week i did the same thing...the first thing i thought was...My belt stretched...lol

It could probably benefit from fitting a new drive belt, as they do wear and stretch.
This should fix things.
Try to mow late in the day - and avoid wet grass. If it is too long - you need to mow more often as there is a limit as to hight it can cut without problems.
The belt is designed to slip at a certain load - otherwise the engine will stall.
