Q:

belt adjustment 917272911 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having problems with your Craftsman tractor model 917272911. The belt on the mower deck is not adjustable. The engagement cable has a spring on the end of it that tensions the belt when you engage the mower deck. If the belt is slipping, I recommend checking the idler arm on the mower deck first. The idler arm is the part the spring on the cable connects too. To check the idler you need to remove the belt from the engine pulley. Then move the idler arm by hand. You should be able to force it towards the back of the tractor and have it return when you release it. If it does not move freely back, I suspect the pivot is rusted. This will cause the idler not to tighten the belt when engaged. To free it up, just soak the pivot down with WD-40 and work it by hand. Once it is free, go ahead and reconnect the belt and check the operation. If the belt still slips, check the blades. If the blades are dull, they should be sharpened. If the blades are fine, I recommend replacing the belt. Over time, the belt can glaze over and slip under a load. The belt can be ordered from the following link.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.     Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.
