How to adjust tension on belt of John Deere Ride On D140


How to adjusted Cutting Deck Belt Tension

You do not say which size cutting deck you have. I will be writing about the 48", 3 blade cutting deck

The belt on this deck is self tensioned. The tension is provided by a spring attached to a moveable pulley on the deck. When the belt is in place you can manually force this pulley forward/backward and it will release the tension.

If the belt is off track, place the belt back around all the pulleys in the correct path, lastly force this spring loaded pulley forward/backward (depending on your deck, the direction is not important, the tension is) to get the belt around the pulley. If the belt is placed correctly, when you release the spring loaded pulley it will properly tension the belt.

Typically, these belts should not be jumping off. If yours is coming off frequently the belt may be worn. When they wear they get quite a bit longer, then the tension pulley cannot apply the correct tension. Rarely does the tension spring have to be replaced.

The other problem that causes belt jumping is worn spindles and stationary pulleys. The spindles are the most likely to need replacement. You can buy excellent replacements for JD spindles on Amazon for very reasonable prices. The following spindles are super replacement spindles for the 48" deck. They may very well be the same for smaller and larger decks; I have not researched that. Just search Amazon for Silver Streak # 285851.

Replaced Mower Deck Drive Belt. Belt runs from Engine pulley to Mower deck Pulley. Purchased new belt rom JD dealer. Belt is slack, Is there suppodes to be a tensioner for this belt.


Yes, there is an idler arm with a pulley that presses either inward or outward against the belt to tension it. In some JD mowers, the arm is tensioned by pulling on a long metal rod that latches near the edge of the mower deck, but without the model number I can't be more precise about that. Just look for that extra pulley and arm it's mounted on -- you'll see a tension spring, and you should also see a way to pull the arm away from the spring to place it under tension. Good luck!

PTO Tension JD 155C


Look between top of deck and bottom of machine for a rod coming from the rear topside of deck and going up to bottom of machine.Where it connects to machine there is a small pin you must pull to disconnect it.Once done loosen locknut and turn collar in,away from nut,3 or 4 turns to give PTO lever more pull.Tighten locknut,put rod/collar up and over crossbar and into hole it came out of,install pin.You may need to move PTO lever as if you were going to engage blades to help collar line up with hole.
