Troy-Bilt Garden - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Since the impeller is mounted on the crankshaft and the crankshaft is part of the engine...you're going to have to hold the engine still while you remove it. Do this by removing the engine's spark plug...turning the engine to where the piston is down near bottom of cylynder and stick a length of clean, soft rope or cord in the cylinder. Then, when you try to take the impeller off, the piston will compress the rope into the head (not hurting anything) locking up the engine and allowing you to do the removal.

How do you adjust the drive belt on a Troy-bilt 12AV565Q711 self propelled lawn mower?
1. Disconnect the spark plug wire at the front of the mower, siphon any excess fuel from the gas tank and verify that the oil dipstick is securely fastened to avoid oil leakage.
2. Remove the screw located on the side of the mower deck, next to the right rear tire, then tilt the mower onto its side so the air filter is facing up.
3. Unfasten the blade retention bolt. The blade retention bolt is located in the center of the blade. Slide the blade off the mower.
4 Unfasten and remove the screws holding the engine baffle to the mower deck, then remove the baffle. The baffle is the circular piece located beneath the blade.
5. Remove the screw fastening the belt cover to the mower deck. Remove the spring between the belt cover and transmission pulley, then remove the belt cover to expose the belt.
6. Adjust the belt to the desired tension by manipulating the engine and transmission pulleys. If the belt has become slack due to age, you need to replace it. To remove it, slide it off the engine pulley first, then slide it off the transmission pulley.
7. Replace the removed items in reverse order.
