I think the belt is on the other side, put that cover back on, take off the top, take off the gears that lift it, take off the drive side cover, I think the belt is held on with a pulley with a ridge on it, Has to come off, One ridge is going one way to stop it from going in and the other is going the other way to stop it from going out. Now , your planer may be set up a little different, But I think it should be close, If the belt is on the side you have off, just keep going, You will see what I am talking a about. I had the same planer years ago, so they might have changed it. Hope this helps.

Delta 22 540 12" planer

in my experience with this planer there isn't a locking mechanism. I have included a link for a parts diagram and you can see there isn't any replacement part for a locking mechanism. I would pull the cover off and see if the screw thread is rusted or seized from non-use over the years. You might oil the bearings at top and bottom of the raising screws!
Good luck!

How do you change the cutter bar bearings on a delta 12 inch planer

You are looking at a major disassembly to get at the cutter head bearings, everything is built around the cutter head. The motor drives the cutter head on one end of it and the cutter head drives the rollers at the other end. Most of the components have to be removed to get the cutter head and it's bearings out. You can go to and do a search on your model number for a good breakdown of your planner and see what you need to remove to get at the cutter head and it's bearings.

How do I replace the drive belt on my dewalt planer

Hi ladyccowboy1,

The drive belt is on the side with the handle (you might already know that :>)).
Take the top off, then remove the lifting gears. Remove the side cover. You'll see the cutterhead pulley that has ridges on it to keep the belt from moving in and out. Remove the pulley.
Change your belt and reassemble.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

  • 17 mm socket (1/2 inch)
  • 19 mm socket (1/2 inch)

  • Balancer belt
  • Bottle of Liquid Paper

  • Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Using a ½-inch-drive ratchet and the 19 mm socket, turn the center bolt on the crankshaft so that number-one cylinder piston is at top dead center (TDC). You will know you ware at TDC when the mark on the crank is in alignment with the arrow on the timing cover.

  • Loosen the upper air conditioner mounting bolt using the 14 mm socket. Use the 12 mm socket to loosen the lower nut and adjusting bolt on the alternator and remove the alternator/AC belt. Remove the valve cover using a 10 mm socket.
  • Place the jack behind the left front wheel where the arrow is located indicating the jack location, and raise the vehicle. Put the jack stand under the subframe behind the jack, then lower the jack. Remove the left front wheel for easy access to the crank pulley. Using a block of wood atop the jack, place the jack under the oil pan and lift with slight pressure to hold the engine in place. Remove the side engine mount using a 17 mm deep socket.
  • Take off the dipstick, pipe tube and upper timing cover using a 10 mm socket.
    Then remove the timing belt adjuster rubber seal without loosening the adjuster nut. Take off the crankshaft pulley bolt. Use the chain wrench to hold the the crankshaft pulley while turning the crankshaft pulley bolt with a 19 mm socket. Use the 10 mm wrench and 10 mm socket to remove the bolts on the lower cover. Remove the lower cover and mark the location of the cam, crank and balancer shaft with Liquid Paper. Remove the balancer shaft belt and timing belt. Install the timing belt and the balancer shaft belt in the reverse order of removing them. During Installation of the crank pulley, coat the threads of the crank pulley bolt with engine oil and tighten it to 159 foot-pounds.

    Drive belt for planer epn 7582 n to replace a broken one

    if you need a part check tool parts direct. if you have the belt, pull the side off opposite the handle that raises and lowers it. you have to roll the old belt off and then you have to roll the new one on. it will be tight and hard to do. if it isn't, there is something loose and that is not good.
