Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Yard Tractor

Open Question

Drive belt keeps coming off. What size belt is correct for this mower? I have been using a 1/2 x 30" belt. I don't have a manual so tried to measure the old broken belt. Belt seems to come off when I shift into gear. Would a 3/8 x 29" be better? The 1/2" seems terribly hard to install. This is a Craftsman ii ride-n-mulch 10hp mower (30 inch mower) model # 95052-033919

SOURCE: Craftsman 42 inch riding lawn mower is not cutting evenly

The first thing to check is your blades. If one is bent, it will never cut even. It happens a lot hitting roots, antbeds, etc. Mulching blades will bend easier than a straight blade. It's best to take them off and lay one on top of the other to see if they're bent.

SOURCE: Craftsman 19hp won't move when in gear

There is a square key about 2 " long that fits in the slot on the axle and wheel and locks them together.. You probably didn't see it when putting tire back on and knocked it out. If you go back where you removed tire, you'll find it laying on the ground.

Model no. 917257660 need belt size for drive and deck


Hello,

The part number for the drive belt is: 140294 the size is Length: 82 1/4", Width: 1/2", Type: Covered

The part number for the mower deck is: 140067 the size is Length: 82 1/2", Width: 1/2", Type: Covered

They are very similar belts so don't get them mixed up the springs on the clutch pulleys may not be able to compensate for the slight difference.

Good luck, if you find this helpful please vote yes. Thank You!!

I have a troy bilt pony and the drive belt to engage to blades keeps coming off. I have replaced the belt and the pully what else could it be?


well i would take a long look at the spring which holds the tension pulley in place. if it is weak, or not connected correctly, there will be inadequate tension and the belt can come off. I would also take a look at whatever fasteners keep the deck in place as if it is not kept to the rear, there again will be too much play in the deck belt.
