Blades won,t disengage


Assuming this is a lever actuated deck (not electric p.t.o style) I would be checking the belt pivot tensioner assembly which the cable would be hooking to a lot of times moisture will get between the pivot and the deck and rust up not allowing the heavy return spring to slide the pivot back removing the tension from the belt. If you spray the pivot with a good lubricant and hand work the pivot tensioner back and forth it should loosen up. Usually it's the other way around and the 1st time of the year you use it you can't get it to engage.

I have a 42" mtd lawn tractor. The blades do not


The blades engage via a belt, that goes around a series of pullies, one of those pullies is a tension pulley that is connected to your pto lever by springs, the engine has nothing to do with your blades until after you engage the lever, I would check your belt. It could be loose, and if you engage the blades it could take it a few to get up to speed, thus making it seem like its only when the engine is warm.
Does everything else work fine? As in the tractor moves when the blades are not engaged?

Blade engagement lever won't disengage


If this is a manual engagment system all the lever does is to pull a jockey wheel into the back of the belt to tention it thus starting the blades to turn, so either the cable is jammed that pulls the jockey wheel in, or the jockey wheel arm is seized and needs freeing off to allow the jockey to to move to the relaxed position.

Vibrating 38" deck on MTD yardman mower


Hi, first replace the blade spindle bearings, if you had to hit them to free them up the bearings are shot. Secondly, replace the deck belt. Because you engaged the blades with a siezed bearing the belt will have a worn section where the v will be thinner thus causing the vibration as it passes through the pulleys. Regards Phil.

How do you tighten lower belt on a 42 ich yardman riding mower?


By lower belt i suppose you are reffering to the drive belt or the blade deck belt, either way these belts are usually tensioned by a spring loaded idler pulley. If the belt is still too loose even with the pulley tensioning it, it may be time for a new belt (that one may have streched out a bit).

Smoke when blades engaged on yardman 42'' yard tractor


The oil on your pulley could definitely be the culprit. You need friction in order for your belts to work properly.

Blades will not engage


Lever that adjusts height does not make blades turn. You need to engage the blade lever and if you can not tell if the blades are turning then they probably aren't. check belt it could need replacement.
