Did it break or overheat? There is a small spacer washer that goes under the pulley between the pulley and bearing, if that washer was missing or got ground up on the first one and you didn't notice it the next pulley would rub hard against the top of the mandrel and fail.

    I've had the same problem. I replaced my center mandrel, spindle (shaft), spacer and both bearings, just last summer. It was fine for a while. Just a couple of weeks ago, it failed again, this time taking out the pulley as well. I ordered a complete new assembly (pulley, mandrel, bearings, spacer and nut), got it a couple of days ago. I got through one mowing today, and it failed again. I'm convinced the replacement parts are poor quality.

I need help putting rear end back together on a 10 hp30 Murray riding lawnmower


Safety and Preparation Serious injury can occur if the engine or mower blades accidentally start while you are working with lawn tractors. To prevent this, drive the Murray lawn tractor onto a flat work surface and disengage the mowing deck cutting blades. Engage the parking brake to keep the mower from moving; chock the wheels with a wooden block or brick. Adjust the mowing deck to the lowest position. Turn off the engine and remove the key from the ignition. While not necessary, you may even wish to disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Mowing Deck Removal You must remove the mowing deck on a Murray lawn tractor to gain access to the belts. Remove the adjustment rod hairpins, followed by the adjustment rod pins from the front left and right sides of the mowing deck. At the rear on the left and right sides, pull out the retaining hairpins and slide the mowing deck suspension links from the adjuster plates to separate the rear mowing deck from the frame. Remove the blade control rod stud, including the hairpin and washer, from the top of the blade control lever shift linkage at the left rear of the deck. Remove the front hanger rod, including the hairpin and flat washer that hold the rod in place. Loosen the belt guide retaining bolts with a socket wrench and remove the engine stack pulley belt so you can slide the mower deck out from under the tractor Transmission Drive Belt Installation Slide the new transmission drive belt between the engine stack pulley belt guides, over the belt guide plate and under the engine stack pulley. Fit the transmission drive belt around the top engine stack pulley. Push the free end of the transmission drive belt up through the transmission shifter hole in the lawn tractor floorboard. Slip the transmission drive belt loop over the transmission shifter. Pull the transmission drive belt down through the transmission shifter hole. Fit the transmission drive belt around the transmission drive pulley and tighten the transmission drive pulley belt guide retaining bolts to hold it in place. Fit the transmission drive belt flat side around the idler pulley. Slide the idler pulley onto the idler pulley stud while holding the belt in place. Tighten the transmission idler pulley retaining nut with a socket wrench to secure the idler pulley to the idler pulley stud. Mowing Deck Drive Belt Installation Pull back on the right side mowing deck mandrel pulley spring-tensioned belt retainer. Guide the new mowing deck drive belt around the right side mandrel pulley and release the belt retainer. Pull the drive belt spring-tensioned retainer away from the mowing deck idler pulley, guiding the deck drive belt around the idler pulley. Fit the mowing deck drive belt around the left side mandrel pulley and under the rear mowing deck cross link rod between the right and left side mandrel pulley. Slide the mowing deck under the right side lawn tractor frame, reconnecting the deck to the frame in reverse order of removal. Engage and disengage the mower deck while driving the mower to test the belt for proper operation.

I replaed the blade drive mandrel and reattacheed the blade and the blade does not freelyturn t is so bound up tht I cannot turnit manually


okay check see if brakes is on the mower, not the tractor but the blades of the mower deck if not then take belt off of the new mandrel side and try turning blade by hand. should turn freely if not mandrel is bad but unlikely. sounds like you changed wrong side mandrel I presume you have 2 blades and mandrels. or when you installed it back on. the belt may be bound up between a guide and pulley just kind of look things over before a tear apart. and then do your tear apart one step at a time then check blade to see if it turns does not seem serious you may have put belt on wrong, I have done it my self. hope this helps major note do not do this with engine running cut you hand off in a flash.

Is there a way to tighten the deck belt? i have gone through 2 belts and they dont seem to be tight around the pulleys.


Your deck should have a couple "idler" pulleys on them in addition to the main mandrell pulleys that have tension on them via springs to keep tension on your deck belt. Maybe you need to really examine the condition of those "idler" pulleys and also the main pulleys to find the problem.

How to remove shaft assembly from mandrel housing of a husqvarna yth2348


It's much easier to do on the tractor.
1. Leave deck installed.
2. Jack tractor up and lower deck.
3. Run a heavy wire through the mandrel pulley's tie down hole.
4. Raise deck and tie wire around the deck.
5. Lower deck and remove top nut.
6. Raise deck and remove shaft.
You can modify this procedure to loose the nut if you don't have a jack and remove it once the deck is off. Retorque nut to 35 ft. lbs during install.

How to Replace v belt drive


For the YTH2246 only...

1. All you need for this job is a small 1/4" ratchet and a 3/8" socket to install/replace the 1/2" X 106" V-belt [(no. 68 in the mower deck schematic for this tractor) Husqvarna part # 532 40 51-43, Sears part # 33156, Rotary Outdoor Power Equipment Service Parts part # 912106 (12-7549)] ($36-$42)

2. Total time for this DIY job: about 15 minutes.

3. Lower the deck by moving the manual height adjuster to the lowest position (position 1).

4. The only screws you really need to remove are the rear retaining 3/8" hex-head screw of the LH cover mandrel and both from the RH mandrel cover. Just swing the left-side cover out to get access to the LH pulley.

5. Slightly pull from pulleys the legs of the keeper belt mandrel LH/RH to remove/insert the belt. Did I mention you don't need to loosen/remove any screw other than the ones mentioned above?

6. For more assistance, take a look at the schematic in the owner's manual or online at http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2006/HOUS2006_O0602060.pdf

Ok Go to partdirect on the Sears website. Enter the 917. xxxxx number that will bring up the drawings and should show you were the spring goes. As for the lock nut its 9/16-18 .You should have gotten a new locknut with the new mandrel.

How can I un-bolt the Mandrel Pulley from the shaft?


If you have the deck removed from under the tractor you can try putting the blade back on tight if you have removed it and then use the blade to keep the mandrel shaft from turning. It takes quite a bit of torque to break the nut loose on the pulley so a socket and ratchet or breaker bar is the best thing to use. Other than that there is no "special" tool required

Bought a new husqvarna 46 inch cut mower today notice that deck has a lot of vibration in it


Tighten the belt that drives the mower blade. You can do this through the adjuster next to the pulleys and the blade-holder driveshaft. It's the one where the belt runs through, the smallest pulley/roller with an adjuster arm.
Try doing this without flipping the mower on its side. You might be able to access it opening the seat, then the cover.

Mandrel chews pulley


Are you sure the spindle is not bent and also are you balancing the blades when sharpening. Other then that make sure bolts are tight on the mandrel. With the deck off and standing up spin the blades and watch center of balde to see if something is bent. Also watch pulley on the other side to see if its bent.
