Question about Mtd Garden

1 Answer

My MTD Yardman HE4160 just stopped yesterday, as I look under it i notice the problem is the drive belt from front to back has popped off. I have refitted, but there is a tensioner pulley in the center with a spring hanging down. I have no manual and cant see where to re-attach the tensioner spring. can anyone help?

You can start by getting a manual here:
http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/public/list.jsp

The above web site also has a "parts finder" that gives detailed drawings for each model.

If you look around under the mower, you should be able to find the hole, or bracket where the spring was hooked. (look for rub marks, or scratches)

If the spring just fell off for no apparent reason, it may have been connected to a bracket that broke off (rust, vibration, etc) It is usually easier to make a new bracket then to try finding a replacement.

Did you make sure the belt was touted correctly? If so, check to be sure that the tensioner pulley has the spring installed that will tighten the belt when cutter is engaged. Also check to be sure that any wiring that may be applicable to your machine is connected correctly. Hope this helps you good luck
