Customer Question

I was trying to replace the self propelled belt on my Toro 20333 recycler lawn mower. When I disassembled the belt was torn. I do not know where it goes. Half of it was on the trans pulley which I removed but where does the belt engage?
There is another drive motor belt but I can't figure out where this self propelled belt rides on?

Wayne,
There are (2) belts, one for the drive which is still attached and the other is for the self propel, that is the one that broke and I purchased a replacement but when trying to figure out where it loops around, I cannot find the other pulley or where it goes.

OK, Thank you

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Wayne, I can't give you a rating until I assemble my mower which won't be until this weekend as I mentioned earlier. Be patient if what you advised worked, I will rate. If not you'll hear back with another question.

Hi

That is not me sending them,

they are Computer generated

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Wayne, I was back at trying to replace the belt on my mower as we discussed a few weeks ago. I do not believe your suggestion was correct. I cannot get the belt over the top or under the drive belt as you suggested. (Review your previous responses above). I would like to attach and send you a picture of the unit as it is so maybe you can get a better understanding.
Can you send me another email address so I can attach a picture file?
I'll wait for your response.
Expert:  Wayne replied 7 months ago.

HI

I really don't want to put my email on the web site

for every body to see

if you click the paper clip in the tool bar

you can attach it there

Expert:  Wayne replied 7 months ago.

Hi Thank you for the Pic

I went back and looked at the parts diagram

they are showing to remove the

the belt guide the one with the cable attached to it and 2 nuts

remove the small belt, then install the drive belt

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Wayne, can you send me the parts diagram you referred to? I'm a bit confused on which belt you are talking about.
Remember, I'm trying to re-install the self propel belt not the drive belt. The drive belt is already installed.
Expert:  Wayne replied 7 months ago.

HI

I call it drive belt, drives the wheels

I will look for that parts list again

Expert:  Wayne replied 7 months ago.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Thanks for the info. I wish I would have seen this before I started this project.
I'll have to try and get back at it this weekend and see where I end up.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
