first link is the Deere parts book showing the parts, the idler is attached to the left pedal, and belt is tensioned when pedal is released, when pedal is pushed, belt should disengage the transmission pulley.
Second link is the Illustration as to how the belt is installed and routed. Thanks, ***** ***** to close.
No, deck belt will not make it work any better. Check the idlers to be sure the pulleys are free and rotating freely, bearings not bad.
Belt may not stop completely, but the load from the transmission should not let mower drive.
No, not safe. Pulley rusted? May need to be run so belt will shine up the pulleys so belt can slip .??
Brake is a mechanical disc brake, and if brake will not hold, the brake pucks may need to be replaced. Or did you tighten the lever on the brake to give brake caliper more travel?
your belt is 88 5/8, what I see shown for the tractor is GX20036 belt. which is 91 3/4 ! ????
I swear that was what I looked up yesterday on the deere site! Now this Am, I look up LA105, 42 inch deck, and come up with a totally different belt! GX20072, which is 103 inch belt! No way can there be that much difference!
I think so too! Thanks.
