SOURCE: John Deere Lawn Tractor LX176. Battery discharge

Locate voltage regulator above battery to the left as you sit on machine,its behind frame that supports steering wheel.Once you have found it use a light to shine on harness and follow the brown wire that leads into regulator.The plastic around that wire should not be burnt or showing any other color.The LX series machines had a problem with brown wire coming loose and causing the charging light to stay on.Remove plug from reg and use small screwdriver to clean out wire and work it a little so it makes good contact.

SOURCE: LX176 Electric Clutch Slips

The clutch is basically a big 12volt elecrto magnet. When it gets power it grabs the magnet and turns the blades. Usually they either work or they dont.
I would check the relay first. Then check for a loose wire or bad connection.
If it comes down to a failed clutch then be prepared to spend between 150 and 300 bucks. remove the deck and unplug the 2 wire connector from the clutch then remove the center bolt from the crankshaft and the clutch will slide off the end of the shaft. There will be a bracket or pin that holds the clutch and prevents it from spinning. Pay attention to how the bracket or pin is situated and be sure to reinstall the new clutch the same way.

I have an LT series Snapper rider with 20 hp and 44" cut. The transmission seems to be slipping. I have not checked the oil. Replacing the belt looks like a big job.

Not as some John Deere mowers I worked on lately.

I am assuming your is the Hydro version with electric pto. First set the parking brake as this remove tension on the belt.

You will need to remove the pto clutch and attention to the keys are positioned as they are one way keys. When reinstalling the PTO clutch it torqued to 55 ft lbs. To do this you need to remove the engine shroud so can block the flywheel movement.

The rest of the belt removal and replacement is fairly straight forward.

John Deere A120 tension spring for PTO broke off and flew across yard I have the new spring can't fig out where it goes HELP>>>>

find the pulley that is loose and rotate it until the belt is tight either way, then add 2 inches on to the spring length and you should find your hole. remove belt from largest pulley that is clear and insert spring through hole and attach other end using a no 3 screw driver using slot to guide spring end into hole.

What are the torque specs for belt tensioner

There no real specs for the tensioner. The bolt should be tight and the unit as a whole should be squared to the engine. If it is in anyway tilted, th eunit is coming apart and will need to be replaced. One bolt holds this unit in place. It should have adequate tension to keep the belt taunt against all the pullies. If you are dealing with a constant squeel issue, locate the writing and you should be able to read it like holding a book in your hand. If it is upside down to you, reinstall. this will take care of the squeeling 9 times out of 10. The tensioners for replacement run about $50 - $75.

Have a john deere lawn tractor. Blade will not

Check both belts on deck. Check if the clutch is clicking in. If not it will most likely need a new pto switch.
