SOURCE: how to remove rear wheel of lawn tractor

You should be able to remove the bolt from the center with a 1/2" socket an slide it off the axle. You do not want to do any heavy hammering on the wheel because you could possibly drive the axle out of the transmission. MTD mowers are notorious for being hard to get the rear wheels off. If you do get them off or ever buy a new one, remove the rear wheels and coat the axles with anti-seize compound. Good luck

SOURCE: MTD Lawn Tractor: Constantly shredding deck belt...

I have the exact same model MTD tractor with same problem. It began when the bolt that extends through the idler arm assembly broke and subsequently damaged the pulley. Upon examination of the broken bolt, I found that the threaded end that extends below the deck is significantly smaller that the rest of the bolt. I got a larger bolt with the same size threads, bored out the hole through the deck and it made the whole idler assembly much stronger. the deck still has some vibration and some unusual belt harmonics, but it appears to be working. Compared to most other tractors of this size, this deck is very complicated.

MTD GOLD LAWN TRACTOR WHEN ENGAGE PTO AND LOWER DECK . SLOWS DOWN TURNING BELT SLIPING


Belt is worn out and needs replacing or maybe the jockey tensioner is not operating on the belt hard enough to prevent slippage. If its all in good condition get a good DIYer or mechanic to have a look. If not its down to your local garden machinery shop.

if it is this cable

then it connects to the RH brake assembly and the PTO engagement plate. There is also a spring that connects at the same point on the engagement plate to the right hand frame.

If this is for the models with the handle along side the seat ..the cable attaches to the end of the of the the handle and then runs behind the seat under the rear fenders and then snakes back to the deck where it to a spring on the deck or a spring that comes with the kit...the cable plus on the spring to get the tension on the belts...some differ but presets much the same.system ..if the ok'd or broken one is still on use it as an example..good luck

I changed all 3 belts on my MTD lawn tractor, now the engine turns over but will not start


check to see if you have spark to the plugs when you are cranking it over. If not then one of the safety devices is keeping it from starting. there is one under hte seat, one on the deck engagement lever and one on the clutch pedal
