I need to replace a mower deck belt on my exmark zero turn mower and there is a place where the belt is trapped by a metal plate bar that connects 2 pulleys. Do I have to remove a pulley to release the belt? Do I have to take the spring off too? Can someone walk me through this belt change, my old one is all chewed up.

There will be one or two "idler pulleys" besides the spindles that turn the blades. Usually one idler pulley is mounted on a plate that swivels, pulled by a strong spring, to put tension on the belt. The other idler pulley is usually fixed in place. Use strong pliers (vise-grips or channellock) to pull the spring out of its notch at one end, releasing the tension. Then the belt can be threaded. Now you have to restore tension by by pulling on the spring and anchoring it on that swivel plate again.

Hit a peice of metal, now mower won't engage.


The mower engages by an electronic clutch. If it doesn't squeal/smoke/start the mower deck when you try to engage the mower, then the electronic clutch is faulty (you may have sent shrapnel into the clutch), or the belt is cut or damaged enough not to drive the deck. If this problem is indeed associated with the mowing metal problem then you need to visually check under the engine - that's where the electronic clutch that drives the mowerdeck is located. You'll notice that there is a drive belt that goes from the engine to the mowerdeck. That's your drive belt. You should loosen the belt and check the mower deck to see if you can rotate the drive pulley and in turn this rotates the blades (of course you do this with the engine off). That would determine if it's the deck or the clutch that has issues. Your instruction manual will show you how to loosen the belt then try to spin the mower deck drive pulley. If it spins by hand then look back toward the clutch. If the deck doesn't rotate then it needs to be removed so you can flip it belly up to see what's hindering the movement. These decks clog easily, but if clogged when you try to engage the mower deck it will squeal. They're easy to remove (if you have some kind of overhead lift - if not they can be a pain). Good luck
