SOURCE: Troy Bilt Self Propelled Lawnmower drive belt

belts usually come off for a few reasons.
They become loose...stretch or the tensioner moves,  Make sure that none of the tightening bolds are slipping.  You can dab them with a bit of paint.
when the pulleys are not in alignment or crooked or bent.  Eyeball the path from one pulley to another, also make sure the tensioner is in alignment and there are no other obstructions.
good, high quality belts are required, and they must be real drive belts...not regular v belts.  If there is a way to watch the belt in operation you can usually see what's going wrong.
On my lawnmower I had to grind some metal away where the belt went from the motor to the transmission.  Good luck

Have a 88 polaris trail boss. dosnt have any hoses hooked up to carb. cant find anything telling me how hoses are supposed to be ran. any help


There is usually only one hose connected to the carb... it goes from the fuel tank-=fuel filter to the carb at the top. The hose is s similar diameter used in lawnmowers and sold by the foot. There is a cable from the throttle which is tricky to get on sometimes as there is a spring on it. If you've never owned a motorcycle of removed throttle cables before, get with someone who has. The needle valve is visible protruding from the bottom of the throttle cable. There is a keeper clip on it and it sets on a particular groove on the needle valve.

I took my toro 6.5 lawnmower carb apart and cleaned, now fuel spurts out of red tube into the air cleaner. Why is this happening?


Sounds like you assembled something wrong when reinstalling the carb. Or your missing a step or two.

Lawnmower starts and dies... where is the main jet for the carb?


try cleaning the air filter, then a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline. most lawnmowers have no mixture adjustments, so it is a matter of cleaning the carb, tank, gas lines. Some oils in gas mix systems settle and clog after less than one season.

Snapper lawnmower will not start - sparkplug is good, air filter clean, no idea what is wrong


Try a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the vertical intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline. most lawnmowers have no mixture adjustments, so it is a matter of cleaning the carb, tank, gas lines. Some oils in gas mix systems settle and clog after less than one season. Spark can be tested by sight, remove the plug and use a clip-on ground wire from spark plug body to metal on the engine with the plug wire connected.

Engine sputters and revs up and down as you push or pull it.


Hi Jim,
Does your carb have a priming bulb? If it doue, it sounds like you have a tear in the diaphragm on the carb. Check for small tear, holes or rips in it. Hope this helps.

Lawnmower starts but won't run-replaced airfilter and plug cleaned carb


If it is starting and not continuing to run it still sounds as though something is blocking the fuel flow. If the carb has been cleaned out, literally torn down and the needles cleaned so that no small debris is clogging them, check the fuel tank and lines for anything that could be restricting the flow to the engine. Remember that it's recommended that you replace the fuel line (cheap fix) when you dismantle the carb. Removing the line breaks off small pieces of the rubber in a worn line, which can re-block a freshly cleaned carb.
