No...it should be pre-set and at most tightened with the idler pulley that is spring loaded

SOURCE: How do I tighten the mower belt on a lt1000?

It is kept tight by a tensioning pully. If it is loose, replace it.

SOURCE: Hi, Just replaced the drive belt on a Husqvarna

Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem.
I looked up your mower and I believe you should be using drive belt# 5321701-40. That is a 112" belt. Here is a link to the parts manual and a drawing of the belt routing. As long as that is the belt you have, and replaced it correctly it should be fine. You are correct, when you put the mower in gear, the pulley system will put more tension on it.

Well, I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP if you think I'm deserving! :-) Thank you! Dane

Tighten belts on my Yard machine ride on lawn mower


There is rarely any adjustment to tighten the belts on a riding mower. The belts are tensioned by an idler pulley which is controlled by a idler pulley spring. Almost all riding mower belts must be accurate to the hundredth of an inch or no less than accurate to 1/8th inch. It is very rare for a belt to be in full inch increments. This is why automotive or general purpose belts will not work on a riding mower. I know it is tempting to try to get by with a $10 belt rather than spending $35 or more for the correct belt. Trust me, you will only waste your money trying to get by with the inferior belts. Riding mower belts and extra heavy duty and generally will not stretch at all. Generally they will have 5 or more strands of a Kevlar type material so that stretching is virtually non existent. If the belt will not tighten then it is most likely not the correct belt. If the belt is in fact the proper belt and still is too loose, then you should look for pulley wear or weak tension springs. Metal pulleys do wear and tension spring do loose tension.

This is actually pretty simple:

Remove Pto guard on mower deck

Stand mower up on back stands

Pull the friction disc away from the drive disc

slip new belt in between the friction disc and drive disc pushing all the way through

release friction disc allowing to come back in contact with drive disc

loop belt around engine pulley

let mower back down

route belt around mower pulley

loosen guides on idler pulley

route belt through idler pulley

with engine off move pto lever to tighten mower belt

adjust guides on idler pulley allowing 1/8" from belt

tighten bolt on idler pulley

release pto tension

install mower pto guard

and you should be ready to mow
