SOURCE: 609 yard machine tractor idler pulley spring broke

Here's a diagram, not a great copy, but it may help:

The spring hooks to the idler arm on the opposite end from where the pulley is mounted. The other end of the spring looks like it hooks to a raised tab on the deck, straight behind the left mower spindle. Hope this helps you, please rate my solution if so, thanks!

How do i rewind the recoil spring on my craftsman lawn mower?


Normally these small engines use a clock spring to retract the rope.
Remove the cover on the top and you should find the spring either broken or the tab where the spring end has broken off or jumped out of the mount.
You will need to pre-load the spring with enough tension to retract the rope.
Remove the pull handle from the rope, load the spring and then wrap the rope around the pully holding the pully and spring in the loaded position. place the end of the rope through the hole and tie up the handle. The rope should pull and retract without being installed on the engine.

Idle adjustment screw


Most lawn mowers do not have idle adjustment screws. They typically have governors with governor springs, or a throttle spring and/or throttle cable. Perhaps a picture would help.

How do I put the drive belt back on my yard man automatic riding lawn mower?


The v side of the belt goes in the v of the pullies and the flat side of the belt rides on the flat pullies. It looks like the flat idle pully is bent out of alinement. The one showing in video with no belt on it that is the last pully the belt runs on before returning to engine. The belt comes from the engine to a spring loaded flat pully, to v pully on right of mower ,to v pully on left, to flat idle pully // that looks to be bent // then back to engine. Put belt on all pullies saving the spring loaded pully for last.

Pull start cord got pinched. Dumb me took off


Yes you can put the spring back in but it takes patience. Wind the spring inside the pully first. Then install the cord on the outside of the pully. Make sure you wind both in correct direction. You probably should replace the cord while you have it apart. The parts would be listed by the engine brand and model number, not by MTD. Probably a Briggs & Stratton engine? You can go to their web site :www.briggsandstratton.com to get part numbers. Or you can try a place like www.jackssmallengines.com

Mtd 22" low idling how do I correct the problem?


if this has a briggs & stratton engine on it, then the idling is set thru a spring on top of the carberator. some units have an idle set screw also. if it has an idle set screw, turn it in untill it idles where you want it to, if it just has a spring, then replace the spring.

Rpm fluctuates idles high then low high then low


It could be the governor spring is weak. Get your model type and code numbers off the engine shroud and take them to your local small engine repair shop and get the new spring. It's not hard to replace. Install the new one and you should be up and running.

Spring keeps breaking on mower deck belt tighener.


I would try getting a stonger spring but the same length as the orriginal spring. The spring still needs to have enough tension to pull the pully back, if you get one that dosn't have as much tension it wont pull the pully tight enought.

Diagram for Lawn tractor instalation belt


managemyhome.com has many manuals for yard machines/mtg lawn tractors.
The information you need may be generic and therefore almost any manual may help re-install the belt. This manual is for the 660-679 series. Once at the site you can check different model numbers for one that may be closer to the machine you have.
