SOURCE: Replacing the Drive Belt on a Poulan Riding Mower

Without an impact, it's will be more difficult. The only way to get back-up on the bolt is to remove the screen over the flywheel on top and put a socket on the flywheel nut

be sure that the hydro-stat is locked in. if you pulled the pins to free wheel it and forgot to push them back seems to be a common problem. is the belt on correctly? is any pulley damaged or missing?

Here is link to parts manual. Page 14 shows belt and shape to go around belts. I have found it easiest to remove deck and clean drive shafts for blades and idlers etc. that way new belt will last longer.

We have a 48" 23 hp poulan pro riding mower, our problem is the drive belt from the engine to the deck is always breaking, this is the 4th one we bought this summer. what could be the problem


More than likely, you are using a automotive belt not a "V" belt. Automotive belts are pretty tuff but can not stand up to the beating a mower takes. Go to your mower place and get the proper size "V" belt for your Poulan. Make sure it is both the proper size and a quality belt. I recommend "Gates" belts.

When you start your mower, start it with the engine at slow speed, to lessen the shock that the belts and clutches take.
