Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

I have a 2000 craftsman riding mower with a 46 inch deck and a 22 hp kohler engine. I have replaced my deck drive belt several times because it keep jumping off. I then noticed that when I installed the last one, the belt was not even from the motor to the deck causing the belt to wear very quick on the bottom from being uneven. I also have an electric pto therefore i could not lower the pulley to make the belt run evenly from pulley to pulley. The only time the pulleys are lined up evenly is when the deck is in the raised position. Thanks for all the help.

What is the belt configeration for a Craftsman 917.254214 ride on mower?


This video shows several belt patterns for various mowers. I am assuming you are wanting the deck belt and not the drive belt. 4 seconds into the video is the standard craftsman 42 inch belt path. The belt at the bottom is put on the engine pulley. Tip from my own experince make sure that the belt is under the belt guides or you will ruin a belt in short order. Your model number is under the seat and is also a scanable barcode. Another tip is to snap a photo of your model numbers. This is handy when you need parts.

The mower deck doesnt stay kicked in


1) check condition of deck drive belt

2) check condition of belt tensioner system located on top of the deck.
tensioner system pivots and also applies brakes on spindles
being worn, it does not give full travel to tension the belt

3) make sure engine mount bolts are tight

4) engine 'Stack Pulley' groove can be worn

5) check idler pulley bearings
