Q:

I have a older model LT 1000 still runs & cuts like new.. Model # 917-275401

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I assume the engine will continue to run when you attempt to engage the deck. If this is what is happening I recommend checking the belt routing first. If the belt is fine, have someone move the lever (with the engine off) while you watch the idler arm on the deck. The cable should tighten up, move the idler and tighten the belt. If the cable is fine and the idler it is not moving, the pivot is likely rust. To fix this loosen the pivot bolt and soak the pivot with WD-40. Then work it back and forth until it is loose. Once free, tighten the bolt and check the operation. I hope this is helpful.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the mower.
