SOURCE: how do i replace a drive belt on a troy bilt self propelled lawn

You turn the mower over, remove the blade with a 9/16 or 5/8 socket. There is a bolt holding shroud on, 3/8 or 7/16, there are two screws by the rear wheels, 7/16 that need to be removed. Once the shroud is removed, belt can be removed and new one put on.

SOURCE: Craftsman self propelled lawn mower will not propell

Take off the cover up front on the self propel. Engage the self propel and make sure your cable is not broken. If that is ok then remove the wheels and inspect the molded cogs on the inside of the wheels and make sure they are not stripped out. If they are stripped go to www.sears.com and on the tool bar click on parts direct. Under model number enter yours and it will take you to a parts diagram. Get the part number for the wheels and go to local small engine parts dealer and get new. You can also do a search on the web for the wheels and maybe get them cheaper.

Good luck and let me know if this helps or you need any more help.

SOURCE: Honda lawn mower, self propelled mechanism not working

check the mechanism first before changing the gearbox its possible that the cable might jump out from the pulley or the cable is worn out or its possible that the gear on the tire is worn out to if not then that would be the time for you to change the gear box it would be hard to change it if you don't have the right tools to work on it if you know how everything work its not that hard to replace it just make sure were everything goes memorize the parts before disassembling cause that would be you guide to reassemble it...goodluck

You may have to loosen the adjustment a bit to let the transmission tilt farther forward. Do not loosen the other nut on the adjustment, that way you will know how far to re-tighten the one you loosened when you have the belt on.

Self propelled lawn mower makes whinning noise


disconnect the spark plug turn the mower on its side and inspect the drive belt on the pulley above the blade (on the crankshaft) it may have a shroud over it. Also there is a small gear case that maybe dry that the belt drives, that goes to the wheels, Also try lifting the drive wheels up off the ground and engage them and see if it still does it. if it stops once lifted it might be the bushings on the axle its self.

Lawnboy 10665 won't self-propel and impossible to push


If you have the smell of rubber burning the belt isn't gripping. Make sure that there isn't anything stopping the wheels turning like old grass or even a piece of twig. If their clear try adjusting the tension on the drive pully.

I have a Lawn boy 10696 mower that seems to need a new self propel belt. Is this something i should bring in for repair or something the average homeowner can replace?


This machine is kinda tricky. Took me a bit to figure it out, so you may want to take it to the shop where they can do it in a jiffy. If you take that back top cover off, you can get at the belt from there. I can't remember, but I think then you have to go underneath AFTER REMOVING THE SPARK PLUG WIRE!!! and remove the blade to get the other end off. The proper replacement of the belt should be outlined in detail in your owner's manual. I work on so many different machines that I cannot remember the exact way that I did it the last time, but I know it was a pain in the A$$. Hope this helps.

Belt jump off the drive pulley


I don't have this kind of mower. But I was faced with the same problem recently. I got my belt back on by taking a large wrench and affixing it to the bolt head holding the pulley which you want to slip the belt on. Hold the belt firmly against the pulley and turn the wrench and the belt in the grove will walk around the pulley until it slips in place.
