The best guide you can have is to have the new part in your hand and it will become self explanatory. The one problem I can see you having, is getting the old pulley off. Many times these are on a tapered spindle. So when they tightened them down they are REALLY hard to get off without a gear puller ( You can get one from Harbor Freight Stores for about $15).(draw a diagram of how the belt goes) find the idler pulley and release the tension to the belt, remove the belt. Loosen the bolt on the top of the spindle.(You'll need to place a block of wood under the deck to stop the blade from spinning) apply pressure with the gear puller, remove the pulley, remove the rest of the bolts that hold the spindle in place, drop the spindle through the deck, replace with the new spindle, replace the pulley, replace the belt and start mowing. Next step, look in the mirror and remind yourself that you are the COOLEST person on the planet.

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.

Replace spindle shaft on 42 insch cutting deck


take the deck off. the shaft you want to replace take the nut off the pulley on top and hit it with a hammer it should fall out the bottom. take blade off and there go. be sure bearings are good put new shaft in and put pulley and washer and nut and blade . take a picture of how it comes apart so you don't forget when you go to put it back together.

Blades won't engage on my zero turn 50" cut husqvarna (approx2011) I found a 7" spring on the ground and don't know where it goes back on. Can u help


Looking underneath the mower on top of the deck there should be a flat metal arm with a flat faced pulley on the end. This pulley pushes against the belt that drives the mower deck . The spring should be hooked on that arm and pulled tight over to a place on the deck and this is what keeps the belt tight enough to turn the blades when you engage the pto switch. My recommendations to put this back on is to remove the belt pulley cover on the deck right side roll the belt off at that pulley giving you a bunch of slack so you can hook up the spring and put the belt in the right position on everything else then go back to the deck right hand pulley start putting the belt back on that pulley and when it is to tight to get it all the way on reach under the deck and use the blade as leverage to finish turning the pulley and walk that belt on the rest of the way ,it will not hurt a thing, all you are doing is pulling that 7 inch spring over like it was intended to be, then replace the cover on the deck spindle.

How to adjust tension on belt of John Deere Ride On D140


How to adjusted Cutting Deck Belt Tension

You do not say which size cutting deck you have. I will be writing about the 48", 3 blade cutting deck

The belt on this deck is self tensioned. The tension is provided by a spring attached to a moveable pulley on the deck. When the belt is in place you can manually force this pulley forward/backward and it will release the tension.

If the belt is off track, place the belt back around all the pulleys in the correct path, lastly force this spring loaded pulley forward/backward (depending on your deck, the direction is not important, the tension is) to get the belt around the pulley. If the belt is placed correctly, when you release the spring loaded pulley it will properly tension the belt.

Typically, these belts should not be jumping off. If yours is coming off frequently the belt may be worn. When they wear they get quite a bit longer, then the tension pulley cannot apply the correct tension. Rarely does the tension spring have to be replaced.

The other problem that causes belt jumping is worn spindles and stationary pulleys. The spindles are the most likely to need replacement. You can buy excellent replacements for JD spindles on Amazon for very reasonable prices. The following spindles are super replacement spindles for the 48" deck. They may very well be the same for smaller and larger decks; I have not researched that. Just search Amazon for Silver Streak # 285851.

Your syptoms indicate there is a bind on the mower deck.
Slip the belt off of one of the pulleys and make sure the spindles and idlers are all free spinning. Also check the belt is not on the wrong side of any of the belt guide posts designed to keep the belt in the groove of the pulleys. If any of the spindles are hard to turn, check for debris around the shaft on the under side of the deck. Also if any are rough or noisy, replace that spindle.

Poulan pro spindle installation manual


Remove deck, remove nut from pulley on spindle, remove 3 bolts holding spindle, if spindle doesn't fall out, gentle tap it out, be careful not hit threads. Replace with new bearings. I always use the parts diagram remove things and put together in proper order. You should have parts diagram in your owner's manual.

My Motion Drive Belt slipped of it's pulley on a Husqvarna Riding Mower Model 917-289570. Do I have to remove the rear tire to put the belt back on?


i had a 2148. you remove the mower deck as the first step. feed the belt over the pulley on top the transmission, then put it over the engine pulley. then have someone push the clutch pedal in so the tensioner pulley moves, put the belt in the guide pulley and on the tensioner. release the clutch put the deck back on and you are good to go. notice there are little keepers welded to the frame for the front, engine, pulley and it is easy to mistakenly put the belt over them instead of under them.

a general rule is that a pulley shaped like a Vee takes the V of the belt whilst a pulley which is flat takes the flat back of the belt. if you bear that in mind you will not have a problem putting belts back on. also there is a little decal on top the deck showing how the deck belt and deck drive belt go.

How do you remove the pulley from a spindle, without destoying the pulley


Before you put the socket on the nut on top of the pulley, you need to take a piece of wood and place under the deck in such a manner as to stop the of the blade when you turn the nut. You can also use a set of vice grip locking pliers or a large c-clamp to stop blade rotation also by clamping to side of deck. Then you should have no difficulty removing the nut from the spindle releasing the pulley.

If really helpful, please rate.
