Question about MTD Genuine Factory Parts Tractor PTO Belt

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman LT1500 427.288810 and the PTO belt broke. When I try to install the new one, it does not fit between the driven sheeve and the side frame. I think I need to take that pulley off, but I can't get to it. This seems like a lot of trouble to change a belt. Am I missing something?

How do I replace the Blade Clutch Assembly on a Craftsman mower, model 817.288160?


There is one bolt in center of pto clutch. Its best to have an impact to remove this. If you try to remove with a wrench engine will spin. Remove both belts first. Then simply unplug the PTO, Use impact wrench and remove center bolt and gently pry off. Installation is the reverse order.

Blades will not engage, belt not broke but is very old, do I need new one?


Check if the belt is loose. With the engine off, try to pull the mower deck belt around by hand. If you can pull it easily, and the blades don't turn, then replace the belt. If it's hard to pull, and you can see the blades try to turn as you pull it, then your problem probably isn't the belt, but the PTO clutch or mower engage switch.

Have a Craftsman 26 hp, 48" mower...mower starts runs but when I try to engage the blades nothing happens. Checked all the belts, ck for blockage but nothing...what would the next step be?? Tks


When you say nothing happens...is the PTO engaging? You said that you already checked the belts...if none of these are off...you maybe looking at a new PTO clutch.www.nnyparts.com

DTY 4000 tractor dies when engaging pto, new


Hi,
This is just a suggestion. Try pulling the choke out about one third to one half and then engage the PTO. Sometimes the air idle adjust screw port gets a tiny speck of debris in it. If with the choke partially out and the PTO engages the just grab a screwdriver and turn the air idle mixture screw counter clockwise a hair.

Craftsman 26hp Garden Tractor PTO not working


If you changed the belt make sure it did not interfere with the wire that runs from the pto clutch, sometimes that belt can rub on the wire and wear through it,also if you had the clutch off make sure you aligned the steel retainer bolt that sets in the alignment hole on the pto clutch,this keeps the clutch from spring when disengaged if you don't get that pin through the hole in clutch it can push on the clutch and bind it.Also it may be possible to plug that pto switch in backwards.Also if you jumped the fuse out it may now have burnt the switch or wiring somewhere.
