The ribbed side of the belt goes around the axles while the smooth side goes on smooth pulleys. The belt tensioner is mounted on a bracket that is bolted to the frame. The bracket is held in place by two bolts, one on each side, and a nut and washer are used to hold the bracket in position.

This bolt is not shown in the picture, but it is important to keep in mind that this bolt must be tightened before tightening the other bolts in order to prevent them from loosening. If the bolts are not tightened properly, the tensioning mechanism will not work properly and you will have to re-tighten them before you can start the engine.

It is a good idea to use a torque wrench to make sure that the torque is correct for your engine, as well as to ensure that you do not over-torque the bolt(s) you are tightening. Once you have tightened all of your bolts and nuts, you should be able to turn the motor on and off with ease.

How do you put on a belt?

What are the two belts on a riding lawn mower?

V-belts can be found from the engine to the transmission on riding lawnmowers. V-belts from the engine to the transmission will allow the operator to vary blade speed. Most of the time, the two are dependent on a single belt. V-Belts are usually located on the front of the machine, and are used to control the speed and direction of movement.

They can also be used in conjunction with a clutch to increase or decrease the amount of power that is transmitted through the drive shaft. The most common use of a v-belt is to allow a rider to change the blade angle. This is done by turning the belt counterclockwise or clockwise, depending on which direction the rider wishes to move the blades.

In this way, the user is able to adjust the angle of blade movement without having to turn the entire machine. Some riders prefer to use a different type of belt for this purpose, such as one that has a spring-loaded locking mechanism that can be locked in either direction. These types of belts are often referred to as “V” belts, as opposed to a “B” belt.

What is the difference between a deck belt and drive belt?

Belt” on your mower goes from the transmission to the double pulley. Drive belt is used to make the engine run smoothly. If the belt is worn out, it will not run as smoothly as it should. This is why it is important to keep your belt in good working order.

How tight should a drive belt be on a riding mower?

Geek you should be able to pull the belt away from the pullies if you loop one or two fingers over the same belt. This is about one or two pounds of force. If you need more than two fingers, you may need to loosen your deck belt.

What happens if you put a belt on backwards?

If you put the belt back on in the opposite direction, the ribs end up in different pulley grooves than the ones they’ve adapted to over time.

The dangerous increase in wear and tear on the belts will be caused by the belt having to re-adjust to a new pattern. This is why it’s so important to keep your belts in good condition.

If you don’t, they’ll eventually wear out and need to be replaced.

How should a belt sit in a pulley?

The top of the belt should be within -inch of the outer surface of the pulley. The remaining belt life can be shortened by as much as 10% if the belt top is deeper in the grooves.
