A:

I have attached a copy of how the belt should be routed on your tractor. The drawing has some notes with part numbers on them; unless you need those parts don't worry about them being there.

I have a feeling you may have got the belt on one of the idlers wrong as it's easy to do.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Will a Craftsman 486.25406 snow blade (42 in) fit a Craftsman model 917.272058 mower?

A:

The correct snow thrower for your tractor is 24839. The 25406 snow thrower would probably work but the brackets will not fit your tractor.
