well i would take a long look at the spring which holds the tension pulley in place. if it is weak, or not connected correctly, there will be inadequate tension and the belt can come off. I would also take a look at whatever fasteners keep the deck in place as if it is not kept to the rear, there again will be too much play in the deck belt.

Those units are self adjusting. No way to adjust it. It sounds like you have a bad idler pulley or a bad spindle bearings, which would cause the pulleys to be out of alignment.

SOURCE: I have a troy bilt riding mower blades will not engage in the 1 or 2 deck setting

There is a spring attached to a tensioner that probably came unhooked while changing the belt. Higher deck settings push the deck backwards enough to spin the blades, the lower setting need the spring tensioner to take up the slack in the belt.

I have a Troy Bilt Pony riding mower. The blades will not engage to cut when the lever is turned on. Prior to this happening today, the blades would Not Disengage when lever was turned off.


Someone will need to take the deck apart and service it.
You may need new parts in some places.
That problem is lack of service.
Most other things you have today do not need service anymore, but lawn equipment does.
You will need to clean it and lubricate it regularly, for example: it must be cleaned after every use, and must be lubricated after every 5 cuts, or twice a year, which ever occurs first.
God bless your efforts.

I have Troy Hydrostatic 46" when I attempt to


If you lower the blade deck and get down near the mower, you can see the blades belt on top of the deck. If it is intact, with the engine off, have someone try to engage the blades. A tensioner should move into place to tighten the blades. If it is not, follow the engagement lever to under the dash to see if there is a cable broken or a rod detached.

Troy Bilt Pony s/n P92695 5Hp Briggs. Drive wheels won't stay engaged. Lever jumps out. Can hold lever in with not much effort and will stay engaged. Any adjustments?


yes there is an adjustment. follow your shift lever down and you will find a block of iron with 2 bolts holding it. you will also see ond the lever itself a spring loaded pin.most of the time this pin gets gummed up and does not engage the block completely.clean and ensure the pin moves freely. if this does not solve the prob then the block can be moved up or down by loosening the bolts.

Troy bilt horse pto clutch will not disengage


The problem is lack of lubrication in the pto coupling. Losen the two swing bolts carefuly,block the front under the motor. Separate the tine transmision from the housing and grease both sides with as much grease as you can work in. Work the lever as you do this. Should fix the problem.
