Q:

belt on lower deck riding mower 917258550

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct.com. I appreciate you being a valued customer and I will be happy to assist with your mower. Upon researching model 917258550, the tensioner bearing can be going out. If it is not spinning freely it will cause stress on the belt and make it heat up. Also there are bearings inside the mandrel housing of the blade. If those are grinding they will put stress on the belt as well.

If you have any further questions please re-post. Thank you for choosing Sears. Have a great day.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

To keep the blade from turning, wedge a block of wood between the blade and the inner side of the deck while breaking the pulley bolt loose. I recommend spraying so WD40 or some rust penetration fluid on the bolt and let it soak before attempting the break the bolt loose.

Another way to break the bolt loose is to use a air impact wrench.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
