Is there a way to tighten the belt?


Don, there is usually a spring loaded tensioner to do this, the belt may be stretched and needs replaced, or some pulleys actually are now wear items and may need replaced. Check the video links below, some models are adjustable.

How do I replace the drive belt on a john deere 265? There doesn't seem to be a clear answer anywhere. Please help


you can look at the manuel that came with the mower or if you did not get one, go to the JD mower web site and look up you model and download the needed documentation. If that is not possible contact the local JD mower dealer and get a copy of the mower deck docs and look at the instructions for belt replacement.

John deere 855-70 manual


On ALL Deere riding lawn mowers, 1st, position the deck under the tractor. Depending on the belt drive: either PTO (the yellow button on the dash panel), or tension engaged-(a lever on the right side of the operator\'s seat), you loop the drive belt from the front of the deck to the pulley, always in the lower front area of the tractor\'s engine. If it has "beltguards" too close to the pulley, you must loosen the retaining bolt for the guard, it will allow the belt to squeeze by and onto the pulley. Then, 2nd but don\'t forget to retighten after slipping the belt on, push the "Deck heighth" lever fwd to drop the deck "hangars" at the rear of the deck into position to "pin" the eyelets with the supplied pins, washers and keepers: usually a cotter pin or a lynchpin that inserts thru a hole on the smooth bolt-pin. The easy part\'s over, but don\'t panic. 3rd, lift the front of the deck onto a block, allowing a heighth to apply the "adjusting rod" into the front of the mower chassis. Screw the retaining nut onto the threaded (long bolt) and remove the block. You\'re done. Next, and very important, RAISE & LOWER the deck, engage the belt tension, (here you may have to clear the area and start the engine to engage the PTO drive, if it\'s electronically controlled belt-drive), this assures nothing is "misaligned" or improperly positioned. Now, if the machine is on a flat surface, lower the deck to a point just above the ground and measure the distance in four (4) corners of the deck and record the ht. Make the adjustments to LEVEL the deck. Now you\'re ready to start the engine from the operator\'s seat, slightly increase the engine from idle to 1/4 throttle speed so that engaging the drive belt won\'t kill the engine. Ensure the belts run smoothly, the blades turn, and the engine doesn\'t "bog". Lower the deck to a desired cutting ht., now MOW the grass!

How to change drive belt on craftsman ltx1000 18hp kohler


Find out the driver belt's partnumber. If you don't have the manual call Sears and tell them the model numberor look it up online. Clean out theunderside of your mower's deck, making sure there are no leftover pieces fromyour old belt still stuck inside. Findyour mower's tensioner, which keeps the pulleys in place, and loosen it (thisusually involves loosening a single bolt). Then slide the pulleys closertogether so that you can fit the belt over them more easily. Arrange the driver belt over the pulleys (youshould refer to your user manual for the exact configuration of the belt overthe pulleys, since this will vary depending on the specific model of your lawnmower) Tighten the tensioner back up,leaving only about a finger's width left of play in the belt.

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!!

While mowing the yard, the mower went dead. I tried to recrank it and it won't crank. The gas pedal goes straight to the floor and doesn't work to crank the mower. I do not know anything about mowers and don't know where the problem could be. Can someone help?

MTD JE145H cutting deck keeps throwing belts


Usually the reason a mower deck is throwing its belts is there is a bearing that is starting to sieze up in one of the quill assemblies, which is the assembly that the blade is attached to . Either that or one of the belt tensioner pulleys is starting to go bad, easiest way to check this is remove the drive belt, take off the cover over the tension belt and remove that belt know check all moving parts for tightness or excessive looseness. Hope This Helps You Don
