SOURCE: how to replace drive belt on john deere model 345

- remove deck
- remove seat and rear fenders
- pry off deck adjusting knob
- remove F/R pedals
- remove floor plate
- use jackstands to prop up entire right side of tractor
- remove (2) screws holding fuel lines on side of frame
- lift out gas tank, set alongside left side of tractor
- remove plastic fan from hydrostat
- disconnect the electrical connector for the electric clutch
- from the top-side - use a 3/8" drive rachet - stick it into the tensioner slot next to the idler, rotate it to take tension off the belt, and remove belt off hydrostat pulley
- from underside - remove front idler (next to electric clutch)
- from underside - remove the "right-most" idler off the spring tensioner
- from underside - remove the "left-most" idler off the spring tensioner
- now the tensioner can rotate fully to take almost all the tension off the extension spring
- pop the spring off the tensioner arm
- the belt should now be able to be removed from the machine

- reinstall in the opposite fashion
- note: to reattach the spring, connect a nylon cord to the spring, and pull it rearward and guide it onto the tensioner arm - you need to stretch it about 1"
- for reattaching the two idler pulleys to the tensioner, get someone to hold the ratchet so the tensioner is positioned for the belt being in it's most-loose position. You may need to wrap the new belt around the hydrostat pulley first, and assemble the last idler pulley and belt at the same time to complete the procedure.

SOURCE: My John Deere 345 dies for no apparent reason

You have dirt in the fuel tank and it sucks the dirt up on the filter that is attached to the pump. After the machine stalls, the dirt falls off and it will restart and run for a few min.
