Question about Garden
MTD 38'' tractor. I replaced the belt, when I go to start the mower the blades rotate. I raised the deck as far as it will go. Should I replace the brakes. I read where I could spray graphite on the PTO that might help
Be sure you have the correct belt for that mower?
Even though your deck is raised to disengage the
belt it may need to go up a small amount more,try pulling back on the deck raise handle to see if that helps,and find a way to keep it at that higher point if that worked or run the new belt for awhile and see if that makes a difference.
Check the belt guards to see if they are close to the belt as possible while engaged,but not hitting the belt
and when disengaged guards should be hitting the belt somewhat to help keep it from turning.
and yes be sure you have good belt brake pads and know they have good tension and hitting in the proper place
