Catfish howdy,

If it's a craftsman there should be cotter pins to detach the deck on the arms of the deck and then just slip the belt off the main drive pully near the front of the tractor.

Is not cutting evenly


Depending on the mower design there are several possibilities here. There should be adjustments for the deck. Either by raising or lowering the deck wheels or adjusting where the deck connects to the mower. Also possible that the support mechanism is bent causing the deck to sit lower on one side or even that the deck is bent especially if someone has been stepping on the deck to enter or exit the mower.

How do I replace the blade belt on a ranch king lawn tractor?


Turn off the mower completely and clean out beneath the deck with a mower-cleaning tool to remove any built-up grass deposits. As debris collects inside the deck, the blades can't move freely and you'll have unusual patterns or unevenness forming in your lawn as a result. The mower-cleaning tool scrapes this debris off and restores the deck to proper function.
Measure the height of the mower deck with a ruler when the mower is on flat ground. The deck should be an equal distance from the ground on all sides to ensure an even grass cut. Adjust the leveling bolts on both sides of the deck as needed to readjust the height until it's even. If the mower hits something like a rock or a large stick while mowing, it may knock the deck off balance.
Inspect the deck for any dents or warping. Use a rubber mallet to carefully straighten any dents in the deck if the deck is metal. Plastic decks generally need replacement if they crack or warp.
Remove the deck for a more thorough inspection or cleaning as needed. Remove the grass catcher and take off the pins or mounting bolts holding the deck in place. Lower it to the ground and pull it out from under the mower. Unhook the cutting blade from the underside of the deck with a wrench and set it aside.
Sand off any rust with sandpaper and use the mallet or a hammer to eliminate any remaining dents or warps.
Reinstall the deck once any corrosion or dents are fixed.

Mower deck slows and stops when I turn my Simplicity riding mower to the left,


HI,

The simplicity has a a two point mounting system for the deck. It attaches to the front axle which has two runners that go to the front axle's rear support bracket.

Closely check the runners near where the pins that hold the mower deck. They are known for cracking and breakage. Secondly, closely check the decks metal center support bracket, it bolts to the center of the deck and supports the idler pulleys as well as the deck alignment and mounting. Those, too, are known to crack near the front just behind the front pulley.

2000 craftman lawn tractor 917.270822 blades will not engage


If your blades won't engage when you raise the lever to engage them AND that lever moves freely without the normally expected resistance, then you've lost the cotter pin that connects the lever rod to the mower deck assembly. Very easy fix! Using the mower deck raise/lower lever, lower the mower deck to "down" position. Now, lay on your side along the right side of the mower and look up (use a flashlight) under the mower at the top of the mower deck while moving the blade engagement lever "up" (which pushes the connected rod down). At the end of the rod, you will see a hole where the mower deck and rod connect. Align the hole at the end of the rod with the matching "pin" on the mower deck (you'll see it) and insert a new cotter pin to secure them together. Use a nail if you don't have a cotter pin. Voila! you are done. The blade engagement lever will now engage/disengage your mower blades successfully. Just remember that mower deck must be down, or lowered, before you engage the blades!

Deck is not level and mower blades are not the same height


Usually you can solve this problem by leveling the deck. Many mowers have adjustment nuts on the ends of the brackets that attach the mower deck to the frame of the mower. First park your mower on a flat surface like a sidewalk or driveway. Then place a small level on a flat area of the mower deck, then turn the adjustment nuts until the deck is level.

Check that the cutting tip of the blade that is cutting lower is not bent down. Also park the mower on a level surface and lower the deck and check the gap under the front of the deck is even. If not, there are levelling adjustments on the top of one side of the deck. Regards Phil

Sharp turns mower didgs in ground or on unlevel ground


If you have the owners/operators manual that came with the mower, it will have instructions on how to LEVEL the mower deck. That sounds like your problem. Deck wheels would greatly help also by stabilizing the deck so it doesn't bounce and "float" so much while mowing.
