IMPORTANT: The V-belt found on your tractor is specially designed
to engage and disengage safely. A substitute (non-OEM) V-belt can
be dangerous by not disengaging completely. For a proper working
machine, use identical equipment belts as listed in the parts pages of
this Operator's Manual.
To change or replace the deck belt on your tractor, proceed as follows:
1.
Remove the deck as instructed earlier in this section.
2.
Remove the belt covers from the spindle pulleys by removing the hex
screws that fasten the covers to the deck. See Fig. 23.
3.
It may also be necessary to loosen the hex nut on the left deck idler
pulley to get the belt off the pulley and around the belt guard.
4.
Carefully remove the deck belt from around the two spindle pulleys and
the two deck idler pulleys. See Fig. 23.
5.
To place the new belt, begin by routing the belt around the two outer
spindle pulleys as shown in Fig. 23.
6.
Then route the belt around the two deck idler pulleys as shown in Fig.
23.
7.
Retighten the belt keeper rod loosened earlier.
8.
Remount the belt guards removed earlier.
9.
Re-install the deck, making sure the belt remains routed around the
pulleys as instructed. The complete belt routing is shown in Fig.
23.
10.
Pull the right side of the belt, and place the narrow V side of the belt
into the PTO pulley.

Never attempt to adjust the brakes while the engine is running. Always
disengage PTO (Blade Engage Lever), move shift lever into neutral
position, stop engine and remove key to prevent unintended starting.
If the tractor does not come to a complete stop when the clutch-brake
pedal is completely depressed, or if the tractor's rear wheels can roll
with the parking brake applied, the brake is in need of adjustment.
Contact the nearest Parts & Repair Service Center to have your
brakes serviced.
