Craftsman 917.254520 mower drive belt adjustment help

Where is the mower drive belt adjustment on a craftsman 917.254520? The owners manual says there should be a slot in the 'RH pivot bracket' for the 'rock shaft asy'. I do not have a slot in the bracket on mine though. Thanks!

Check the seat switch for the running problem. Disconnect the switch and jump the harness with a piece of wire, and see if the tractor stays running. If so, then the switch is bad. As for the charging problem. Test the voltage regulator. Start the tractor and put a volt meter across the battery. Red to red and black to black. Run the RPM to full throttle. You should have a reading of 14 to 14.5 volts. If not, the regulator is bad. Hope this helps.

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

Yth2248 loses speed on slightest grade. new drive belt not helpful


Roy if it is the correct belt and fairly new, check your manual for belt adjustment, if it shows that there is no adjustment the pulleys may be worn out, on a lot of mowers the pulleys are ware items and changed more often to correct slipping issues. The other thing to check is the belt tensioner if equipped, it could be seized, weak or missing spring or it may even be adjustable by cable end being threaded or slotted bolt holes on tensioner arm.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How to tighten the drive belt on Craftsman 7.25 EZ Walk mower


If there is any adjustment at all it will be done on the drive cable itself not the belt. You will adjust the cable in order to pull more tension on the belt.

I need to replace the drive belt on my lawn tractor.


Things You'll Need
  • Wrench set
Show MoreInstructions
    • 1Find out the driver belt's part number. This can be found in your lawn mower's owner manual.
    • 2Find a store that sells Craftsman lawnmower parts and see if it has your specific belt in stock.
    • Sponsored Links
    • 3Clean out the underside of your mower's deck, making sure there are no leftover pieces from your old belt still stuck inside.
    • 4Find your mower's tensioner, which keeps the pulleys in place, and loosen it (this usually involves loosening a single bolt). Then slide the pulleys closer together so that you can fit the belt over them more easily.
    • 5Arrange the driver belt over the pulleys (you should refer to your user manual for the exact configuration of the belt over the pulleys, since this will vary depending on the specific model of your lawn mower).
    • 6Tighten the tensioner back up, leaving only about a finger's width left of play in the belt.
