Small Engine Problems? Ask an Engine Mechanic for Answers ASAP
The Lawn Tractor is a 2008. The drive belt looks like it goes around 2 idler pulleys. The manual insinuates that special tools are needed. I have regular tools but not Troy-Bilt tools.
We have to make a run to Lowe's and will be back in about 1 hour or so and be back on for any info you need or can provide to me.
We will give it a try today. We have called Mower Repair and they are booked for 4 weeks.
I will let you know in a few hours if I was able to fix it.
Thanks for the help - I made a loop at the end of a small piece of rope and placed it over the shaft of the idler pully. Put tension on the rope and secured it to where a trailer would hook to the lawn tracker and was able to slip the belt back over the drive pully and released the tension on the rope and the tracker is now running good. No transmission problem this time that is obvious.
I am telling you what I did so that if this comes up with someone else you can possibly use this.
I will put positive feedback for you.
