Question about Craftsman Garden

Open Question

I have a Craftsman 917.272950 model #. The mower driver belt slipped off and I can't figure out how to put it back on. I have the manual and can't tell by the photo what on earth they are talking about. My husband is disabled so I'm trying to fix it. Please explain in detail how this stupid belt goes on!? Thank you.

I need to replace the drive belt on my lawn tractor.


Things You'll Need
  • Wrench set
Show MoreInstructions
    • 1Find out the driver belt's part number. This can be found in your lawn mower's owner manual.
    • 2Find a store that sells Craftsman lawnmower parts and see if it has your specific belt in stock.
    • Sponsored Links
    • 3Clean out the underside of your mower's deck, making sure there are no leftover pieces from your old belt still stuck inside.
    • 4Find your mower's tensioner, which keeps the pulleys in place, and loosen it (this usually involves loosening a single bolt). Then slide the pulleys closer together so that you can fit the belt over them more easily.
    • 5Arrange the driver belt over the pulleys (you should refer to your user manual for the exact configuration of the belt over the pulleys, since this will vary depending on the specific model of your lawn mower).
    • 6Tighten the tensioner back up, leaving only about a finger's width left of play in the belt.

Your problem is at other end . Engagement problem is probably due to a loose belt. Make adjustment in that area of mower. GOOD LUCK.

Thought I posted a solution earlier on this, but it was my first post and I don't see it here so I'll try again.
Google search on your model shows the drive belt diagram on page 27 of the manual.

Looks like mine.
basically need to remove front pulley by loosening center bottom bolt while holding the center nut on top of motor.
Slip belt over the rear pulley first and then straight toward the front, slip belt on front pulley and then slide pulley back onto shaft.
Then wind through the rest of the pulleys etc..as seen in the diagram.
