Thank you for contacting with your question about replacing the drive belt on your Craftsman Riding Mower. I am so sorry to hear the belt disconnected. I know how inconvenient that can be since you can't move the tractor until the belt has been replaced. I will be happy to help you with this.

The owner's manual for your exact model is not online. I have included the link for you to view the Owner's Manual online for the model that was produced right before yours. The model number ends in a 4, instead of 5. The instructions for replacing the belt will be the same.

NOTE: Just be sure that when you are ordering parts, you order them from your model number's parts list. The change in the last number means the manufacturer has made some part changes from one production to the next. Using your model number will ensure you receive the correct parts for your tractor.

You will want to start on page 20, under Remove the Mower, because you will need to do that to replace the drive belt. I have included the link to order the belt, in case you haven't done that yet.

While you are completing your repair, I recommend you check the condition of the deck belt. I have included that link for you also.
