What are steps to change the drive "V" belt? 917377553 Craftsman Rotary mower


Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when needing to replace the drive belt on your mower. I did look in to the model number you have provided and I have found the instructions to replace that belt without removing the engine.

Remove the plastic cover on the front left side of the mower; it's the one that covers the transmission and belt. Then tip the mower on its side with the carburetor up. Now remove the blade and the blade adapter (the part the blade lines up with). Then there is a plastic cover over the belt and pulley that has to come off; it just sits in place with no screws.

To put the belt on, put it on the engine pulley and then feed it through the hole in the deck to the transmission. Put it on the transmission pulley after you put it on the engine pulley. Then put the plastic cover back over the engine pulley. Put the blade adapter and blade back on. Then set the mower back on all 4 wheels and put the cover back over the transmission and belt.

Let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

can a craftsman lawn mower mod. #917.377553 be used without front baffle part #165548?


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You can use it without the baffle. It may lose some vacuum and it could cause grass cuttings to build up at the front of the deck and drive system, but yes, you can leave it off. If it does not cut as well with it off, then I would purchase and install a new baffle part #170031 which can be ordered at for Craftsman mower model 917.377553.

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