Question about Poulan Garden

1 Answer

The mower blade drive belt on my Poulan Pro 16.5 HP, 42", model #310777 broke. The only manual I could find was for a model 60614 which was of very little value to me. The parts store sold me a Gates Hi-Power II A85 (1/2" X 87" belt. We installed the belt using the diagram in the manual as a guideline but now the blades DO NOT disengage when the attachment clutch lever is disengaged. The mandrel pulley on the left blade has small flat piece of metal that appears to have a 'brake pad' on it. It was badly bent (probably when the belt broke) and we straightened as good as we could. Please advise if that needs to be replaced and, if so, what is it called? Thanks for any help you can give us. bl

The only thing I can suggest to get you in the ballpark of what is wrong or if you can replace what you need replaced is to look on the Poulan website and get a customer service phone number. Chances are they will know exactly what you need. Hardware stores are too broad and it sounds like you need specilized attention.

    I am working on getting you a service manual please be patient, ok, I will figure it out.

    What a blessing you are! And the manual, too! I thought I had found the right manual and the only version that would print was in french--not anywhere close to my native tongue. :))

Make a drawing of the deck routing and pull the belt off the mower measure the width and length of the belt and order one on line or go to a mower shop with the belt and they can size it to the one you need. Do the same for the drive belt.

sounds like the drive belt is off or broken, on the lawn tractors if you remove the plate, where you shift gears, you will see the belt.
