SOURCE: Deck belt keeps tearing up then falling off

If it's an idler pulley, where the belt changes direction from the engine - yes it should turn freely. If it's a double pulley where the drive pulley from the engine connects with the deck/blade pulley, then it it's not going to turn totally free because of the blade pulleys connected to it. But in all cases, none of the pulleys should be seized. Try using WD40 or PB Blaster on the pulley bearing surface to loosen it up - or a new pulley...

first you'll need a model number. look on the underside of the seat, or on the metal plate between the rear wheels for the model no. sticker. wards tractors were made by MTD. there will be two numbers plus the serial number, write 'em both down. then log on to www.milacalawn.com. in most cases, you'll be able to pull up an owner's manual for your tractor with one or the other model numbers

SOURCE: My deck belt broke and I am unable to measure it

If you don't have the broken belt, and you don't want to buy 2 or 3 wrong belts. Go to a lawn and garden supply company or sears and buy it by model number of the mower. Then when you have the new one, find the numbers on the belt, and write them down. http://www.searspartsdirect.com or

SOURCE: I have a craftman lawn

There are 4 pulleys (5 counting the engine pulley) on this model so we would need more information in order to properly help you. However, you can follow this link and get a picture of the mower and the item numbers: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fP0604003-00010.png

If you find that it is the mandrel housing (item 14), which is what typically breaks, then I would recommend part number 130794 and 3 of part number 173984. This will replace both bearings and eliminate a lot of hassle further down the line. I am only guessing at this point with the details that I have.

Good luck & please vote yes if this of any help. Thank you.

you can look at the manuel that came with the mower or if you did not get one, go to the JD mower web site and look up you model and download the needed documentation. If that is not possible contact the local JD mower dealer and get a copy of the mower deck docs and look at the instructions for belt replacement.

Capstans wont turn all the time


This is notorious of a stretched belt. The belt should be a new one of less than 3 years old otherwise it needs to be replaced. The dula capstan decks are picky as to what belt goes into them that is why I get mine from Marrs Commununications and the belt would be the 16.8 " sized belt. Oler decks like that also need all kinds of other work as well.

Belt broke on riding mower and I don't know how how it goes back on


Go to Sears and take a look at how the belt is routed. After you get it figured out take a sharpie and mark your deck so you don't have the same problem again. When you buy a new mower mark it before you have to replace the belt.

Just need to now how the drive belt goes. My belt


I don't have a diagram but it shouldn't be to hard. You will have to drop the deck. Then when installing the new belt remember to always place the inside of the belt (V) into the pulleys and the outside of the belt (flat side) up against the larger idler pulley. When you have the belt on properly it should be snug. If you have excessive play you need to try a different routing2.gif around the idler.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.
Thanks
