    i meant to say how do you remove the belt pulley from the engine shaft there is no idler or tensioner pulley for this model that i have seen or is shown from the mtd web site

  • A Miller May 11, 2010

    I don't understand your post. Generally, there is an Idler pully that takes up the slack in a drive belt. Is this the case with your application? It may be operated by a lever or spring.

I have not looked up your model to see if I can find an answer.

I think if I were faced with this problem, I would try to stretch the belt over the pulley before I tried to remove the pulley. I have tried both ways and stretching is superior to removing the pulley every time. I say so because you are going to have to get that darn pulley back on the shaft afterward and the belt will fight you every MM of the way. Plus you will be working in a confined space --- looking up --- in the dark --- on your back!

short out the plugs so the motor cannot fire -or at least disconnect them. Get the edge of the belt in the groove of the pulley then **** fingers out of the way **** turn the pulley around. The belt should go right on.

Let me know how you do.

thanks

I have a old lawn keeper edger with a briggs and stratton 2 hp engine. It has always run great but the belt came off and we cant figure out how to get it back on. Can anyone help with that?


If the belt just came off, it should be fairly easy to refit back on its pulleys. Use the largest pulley to assist in pulling the belt on by turning the pulley by hand. If the belt has broken, you may have to remove 1 of the drive shafts to slide the new belt over. I had a B and S powered mower which broke a belt and I had to strip off the end of the mower and unbolt the main drive shaft to slide the belt down. took me about an hour and a half. Glad they don't break too often. Ive heard of others who unbolt the motor and disconnect the clutch drive to fit a new belt. have a good look at the unit to see whats easiest.

Installation of motor drive belt on cub cadet tractor


This one's a PITA. That said, I had to remove the PTO clutch and pulley, the seat, the brake and transmission pedals, and finally the sheet metal that constitutes the fenders and foot plates.

Belt is put over the fan above the transmission and onto the pulley there, then run along bottom of main frame towards the front until it reaches the engine drive shaft.

The belt goes onto a pulley on the engine drive shaft (above the PTO clutch and pulley, which have to come off). I couldn't slide the drive pulley down the shaft, so pulled the 4 engine mounting bolts and move the engine around slightly to allow putting the new belt on between the pulley and it's surrounding sheet metal. Once the belt was on, and before any other steps, I realigned the engine mounting holes and replace the bolts.

The belt is then run around the pulleys under the middle section of the tractor. Leave the spring loaded idler pulley for last. you might need to loosen (not remove) the bolt that goes through the idler pulley in order to get the belt on. The biggest fight is pulling the spring loaded pulley over so that you can put the belt onto it.


Once the belt is fully routed over all pulleys. Reinstall everything that you had to remove - and you should be good-to-go.


ONE LAST COMMENT: Many shops sell belts that DON'T have Kevlar. Make sure you but the one WITH Kevlar. The others rarely last one season.

What holds pully on shaft for lawn keeper blade


I have an old model Lawn Keeper gas edger with a 2HP Briggs and Stratton engine. It uses a 30" fan belt to drive the cutting blade and both pulleys have an alllen head set screw holding the pulleys to the shafts. The pulleys are cast aluminum and the set screw and shafts are steel so I find need penetrating oil and heat to loosen the set screw in order to push the drive pulley further on the shaft to make room to replace the drive belt.

    Steps needed to change transaxle belt


    lift the front of the tractor up at least 3 feet and lower the mow deck to give you clearance. push the clutch pedal and lock it down to release belt tension. remove the mower belt from the engine pulley only. remove the trans belt from the idlers about midway back then from the trans pulley & finally from the engine pulley. put the new belt around the engine shaft above the mower drive pulley but not on the drive pulley then around the trans pulley. now you can put it on the drive pulley and finally on the idlers. make sure you have it under all the various keepers or the belt will shred in like 10 minutes. release the clutch pedal & check the belt again to ensure it is in the correct place. replace the mower drive belt & ensure that didn't come off other pulleys in the process. lower the front of the tractor and test

    I have a Toro LX466 riding mower. The drive belt


    How to replace the drive belt on a Toro LX466 Lawn Tractor

    1. Jack up the front of the mower-place a couple of blocks under the front wheels (retaining wall blocks from your flower bed work great). Block the back wheels so the mower won't roll off the front blocks.

    1. Remove the battery and battery compartment from under the seat. You can now see the cooling fan blade under the seat. The belt runs from the pulley directly under the fan to the front of the tractor.

    2. Lower the mower deck to its lowest position. Remove the deck hanger rod from the slots in the front of the mower deck.

    3. Remove the metal rod guard below the engine pulley. It's held in place on one side with a bolt, and the other side with a cotter pin.

    4. Take a large pair of channel lock pliers (about 18 in long work great) and clamp them down directly on the engine pulley, but not so tightly you distort the pulley.

    5. Remove the bolt from the pulley. It's a right-handed bolt, so turn it counter-clockwise to remove.

    6. Slide the pulley down the shaft until you can work the belt off. If the belt is too tight, then remove the spring from the idler pulley under the tractor. It's hooked on a bolt near the side of the tractor. You can remove it by grabbing the end of the spring with a pair of needle-nose vise-grips and slipping the end off the bolt. Then remove the old belt from the tractor.

    7. Take a new belt (preferably Kevlar) and start at the back of the tractor (with the pulley under the cooling fan) and thread it through to the front of the tractor. The flat side of the belt rests against the idler pulley with the flat sides.

    8. Work the belt over the engine pulley and slide it back on the shaft. Tighten the bolt on the engine pulley hand tight. Then check the belt to make sure it hasn't slipped out of the groove on the cooling fan pulley.

    9. Clamp the engine pulley with the channel lock pliers and tighten the bolt.

    10. Make sure the belt is routed correctly on the idler pulleys. If you had to remove the spring on the idler pulley, replace it. You can do this by grabbing it with the needle-nose vise-grips and placing it on the bolt-make sure it's above the washer. Then remove the vise-grips and gently pry it over with a small screwdriver until it slips into place.

    11. Replace the metal guard below the engine pulley. Hook the mower deck back onto the deck hanger. Replace the battery compartment and battery. Unblock the mower.

    How can i remove the drive pulley on the 12.5 briggs and stratton


    Hi Steve, There should be an allen head set screw (Sometimes 2) that has to be removed before the pulley will come free. One set screw should be directly above the key way "key" and the second one (If installed) will be within 90 degrees of the one securing the key. Also take a piece of 100 or 120 grit sand paper and sand off the rust areas on the old crank shaft. Occasionally it does require a puller to get them off but usually you can tap gently the pulley every 90 deg (not on the pulley V belt drive area) and it will come free.

    This should be a 13HP 2 cyl engine.

    Depending on the type pulley they are using. Some of them have a collar on the crankcase side of the pulley that will also have to be removed. (again secured with a set screw possibly 2)

    If it is really stubborn you can and should use a puller to remove the pulley. Be very careful if you do have to use a puller; not to damage the V-belt drive area of the pulley.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

    I am trying to get the 11 hp Briggs & Stratton engine out of my Toro tractor to replace the gaskets, since it is using & throwing oil over abundantly. How do I get the drive & mower pulleys from under the...


    On the end of the shaft that comes from the motor there should be a bolt that holds the pulley in place. You will need to remove the bolt in order to get the pulley off. If you can lift the front end onto a couple of blocks it will make the job easier to do. You may have to place a screw drive in between the belt and the pulley. A wood wedge the width of the belt would be better as it would be less likely to damage the pulley. Depending on how old the tractor is, you may have to spray the bolt with a penetrating oil first to help loosen the bolt.
