Can I get a picture of a 46" deck layout for a black mtd yard machine so I can c how the deck engagement cable go

Only seen one or two H decks here.
if it is this cable
then it connects to the RH brake assembly and the PTO engagement plate. There is also a spring that connects at the same point on the engagement plate to the right hand frame.

Clutch cable routing for a craftsman 971289010 lawnmower

The PTO cable will come out the chassis straight down from the engagement lever on the right side of the dash panel. Will be fastened to the frame on the right side in front of the rear wheel with a zip tie. Loop over the brake rod and attach to the deck on a tab at the rear center of the deck. A hair pin will secure it there. The inner cable continues from there under the belt and the spring hooks into the engagement bracket. There may be two hole for the spring to hook into. They are marked 38 or 42.

Your deck either engages with a cable or an electric clutch, which one is it. Cutting deck engaged when started is a switch issue.

Sears troubleshooting

It is likely that the pto engagement cable has broke and needs to be replaced. Lower the deck all the way down. With the engine off, kneel on the right side of the mower. look under the mower and find the end of the cable on the deck. It will be near the center rear of the deck and will have a spring on the end of the cable. Once the cable is located reach up and operate the pto lever and watch the cable. The end of the cable should move with the lever, pulling the idler pulley back and tightening the belt. If this movement does not happen replace the cable.

My YTS 3000 will run but the blades won't engage. Engagement lever is really hard to push up but when I try to engage blades, nothing. Could it be the cable?

Find where the cable is connected to the deck. Have someone move the lever and watch the end. Does it look rusted or bent?
Unclip the cable at the deck. Then try the cable. If it moves freely there is something rusted, bent or broke on the engage pulley mechanism on the top of the deck.

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

I have a 18.5 hp 42" electric start craftsman mower. when i went to engage the blades the lever was harder to move than usual and once it was engaged nothing happened. blades not turning! please help.

When you move the lever and engage the blades you are also engaging the belt that drives the blades and sits on top of the mowing deck. Chances are that belt either came off one or more rollers, or broke. The only way to check it out is to get down and look on the top of the mowing deck. Get back and let me know what you find.
