Husqvarna CT151 Smoking

I have just replaced the main drive belt on my CT151 and now there is a lot of smoke coming from under the engine when the mower is moving. To be specific, there is no smoke when the engine is on but once I put it into gear to move forward or backward I start to smell burning and see smoke.
All help apreciated, Aidan

The belt is smoking because a pulley isnt spinning like its supposed to. its gonna break the new belt if you don't remedy the problem. try taking the belt Back off. then see if you can spin the pulleys by hand with no belt .

Page 17, figure 23 of the manual shows a "Clutching Idler Arm Bracket" that should take up slack. Does it have a broken spring, or is it seized because of ice or rust? The very top of the page does mention that the belts aren't adjustable, but why else is the idler arm there if not as a tensioner?

Serpentine belt was shredding and smoke was coming from under the hood. changed the serpintine belt and it si still smioking


Serpentine belts have an idler pulley and an automatic belt tensioner - either one of these could have gone bad and could cause the smoke. The idler pulley has a bearing inside that can seize, stopping the pulley from turning which would cause the belt to fray. The tensioner keeps the belt tight and when they go, the belt hangs loose, causing the belt to burn on the other components. The Alternator also runs on that belt, as well as the a/c compressor and other components, depending on the particulars of your car ( make, model, engine, accessories, etc.) and the main bearings can be bad there too. There are actually several key components running off the belt and, without being there, I cannot accurately diagnose the issue. I recommend you go to a reputable shop. The type of smell in the burning would guide me to what to check - there are many things that can cause these symptoms. If that mechanic only changed the belt but did not investigate the cause I personally would not go back there.
I'm sorry i couldn't offer anything more concrete to help - hopefully I've given you some directions to look!
Hope this helps!!

Why is lawn tractor crankshaft pulley smoking


Sounds like something is binding. or belt is slipping. Does it smoke when not in gear. Check and see if everything turns by hand when out of gear and no motor running. Make sure its not binding anyplace. If that is ok Start it up and just idle the engine and try to run the deck and put it in gear. If that stalls it out then you do have a problem.

Lt 1000 new deck belt is smoking, is there a break-in period for new belts?


First, you need to check to make sure you have the belt on correctly. There needs to be a tensioner holding the belt in proper tension. I have had a few deck issues where a bearing is worn out and it could be smoking when the grease gets hot. See if you can get a diagram for the belt position and check your bearings and idlers. Also make sure it is cleaned out so that you don't have a lot of grass in there that could be burning and smoking.Good luck.

TIme for an overhaul and rebuild or a new engine. The rings and seals are shot. This is not going to be cheap. IF you keep driving it, there is an outstanding chance that you will seize the engine
