Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I will be happy to assist you. I sound like you have replaced mot of the parts that would cause this problem. Park the tractor on a level surface and remove the key. Then engage the blades. The spring should be stretched and the belt should be tight. If the spring is stretched but the belt is not tight, I recommend looking at the idler arm. I have seen them get worn spots where the brake arms ride and not tighten. If this is what is happening, the idler should be replaced. You can order the parts from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct .

Please let me know if you need further assistance by replying below with more details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

I have changed the drive belt on my Craftsman GT riding mower, model #917.272950. My gears are now reversed, going forward in the reverse gear, and going reverse in the other three forward gears. What did I do wrong? The belt appears to have gone on, the same way I took it off.
