You should have some type of belt tensioner,most common type is a pulley with a spring to hold pressure on belt.Spring may be missing or stretched {2}belt could be stretched {3}pulleys may be out of alignment

How to level the mowing deck on 2002 John Deere (Scotts) 42 " mower. Mower deck drags on right side. Mower height adjuster doesnt work seems jammed.


Have a look underneath while someone operates the height adjustment. There's probably a link arm come off which does deck height. Go to google images for this machine, type height adjustment and look at the pictures if you don't have a handbook. Google JD handbooks and see if you can find a free download.

I have a scotts/john deere s2046 riding mower (man date 12/98) --hydrostatic trans making a groaning noise--want to fix it before it fails--is there a rebuild kit of some kind?


I would try and fill the case with 50 weight oil It might be low. The hose should come to the right side of the pully door on the middle of the tractor between your legs.

I need to see a belt routing diagram for a Scotts Mower


This is for a Scotts 1642. Picture yourself sitting on the mower looking down at the deck. Starting at the tractor pulley, the belt runs from the right side of this pulley to the left side of the tension arm pulley, around this pulley to the left side of the right hand side mower blade pulley, around this pulley, across the deck to the smaller left hand side idler pulley, then up to the left hand side mower blade pulley, around this pulley to the second (larger) idler pulley, around this pulley and back to the left side of the tractor pulley. If you make a small sketch of the deck pulley arrangement it will be easier. Keep in mind some of the pulleys are for the "V" side of the belt and some (The tension arm pulley & larger idler pulley) are for the flat side of the belt. Be sure the belt is not twisted and lays in a continuous circle with the "V" side of the belt on the inside before you start.

I have a Scott s2046, when I pull the choke to start it


did you recently change the fuel filter? When I changed the fuel filter that used to happen to me. What worked for me was loosening the gas cap and it would continue to run, over time the fuel filter soaked in the fuel more and the mower ran fine, give it a shot. Good luck
