SOURCE: Craftsman 18.5 riding mower when I engage the

Hi Jeff, If you look at the deck, one or more of those pulleys is a tensioner, It pushes against the belt to tighten it, The rest of the pulleys can be identified by the fact that they only have a bolt through the middle, whereas the tensioner is mounted on an adjustable arm with a slot to allow adjustment. It should also be the only one that the belt doesn't go around the pully it just pushes on one side.If the tensioner arm is all the way to the end of the slot, the belt is streched and will need replaced but sounds like it may have come loose. Some of these decks also have a spring on the tensioner arm and those come off from a stick or other debris. Check it out and if you have a problem let me know and I will try to come up with a diagram. If your mower is that new there should be a belt diagram on the deck. i will need a model number of the deck or mower for that. Good luck!

SOURCE: Craftsman riding mower noise when blades engaged

With blades on and engine off reach under and wiggle each blade up and down. If you have excess play you will need bearings.

Everytime I engage blades and start to cut white smoke blows out front of engine. Is mototr blown? cheaper to fix or replace?


The muffler discharges out the front as you would see it from the seat. The white smoke in the exhaust when loaded indicateds that you may be having trouble with oil and vacuum inside the engine. At best requires partial disassembly. This may get expensive. I recommend careful consideration regarding the decision to try to repair or to choose to replace.

I hope this helps.

My LGT 2554 Husgvarna mower engine tends to die when the mower blades are engaged. When the engine runs with the blades off at low idle it is ok. When you advance the throttle fast to full it loses power...


A common problem on the 21 & 23HP models is bent valve push rods on one cylinder. With this the engine runs and seems fine, albeit a bit quieter, until you put a load on it like engaging the blades which causes it to nearly die. So you may want to eliminate this as a possibility by running the engine with one plug wire removed and then the other. If it runs with one wire on alone, but not with the other wire on alone, then you have a nonworking cylinder even though it is receiving spark. Just a thought.

Yard Machines RL 638, '07 model, will not start


Sounds like the blades may be engaged. The cable may not have disengaged completely the last time. When the engine is trying to turn over, the belt is engaged trying to turn the blades which could be why the deck is jerking. It will not start if the blades are engaged because of the safety switches.

What ingages blades ,blades not engage


On most riding mowers flipping the handle to engage the blade causes an idler pulley to engage the drive belt, which takes up the slack in the belt and pulls it against the drive pulleys. A few odd-balls have an electric clutch to engage the blades.

Blades will not engage


Lever that adjusts height does not make blades turn. You need to engage the blade lever and if you can not tell if the blades are turning then they probably aren't. check belt it could need replacement.
