What kind of mower is this on? Model/Serial number is ***** have them please.
Can you rotate blades manually by turning the top pulleys?
so when you turn the pulley on top of the deck, the blades do turn?
huh? do what here first?
oh okay. I should have known. Wanting to phone call? That's what happens most it seems.
Give me a moment to look up mower.
On top of deck, its what the blade attaches to and the belt goes on
NVM, mixed your question with another. pulling diagrams now for mower.
Sounds like the blade engagement cable need either tightened or replaced.
yes. it could be broke internally. pull the cable (metal) and see if it will come out completely. If it is loose, it needs to be tightened or replaced.
but with mower running the blades will not move? you have a spring and idler pulley underneath and when cable is tight, the idler engages the belt.
yes. I am sorry, I was thinking you had installed a new belt already. How old is your belt currently?
yeah, it could be time. LOL! I'm in TN also. What part are you in?
I am in Knoxville. About 3 hrs away.
Inspect the belt for shiny sides and smoothness. also, inspect the pulley for a shiny groove.
It is not the easiest job to do. transmission will need to be removed to do it.
No. I would try to find a dealer, but it is not a must
not a problem. Please RATE me as I strive to do my best, ***** ***** rating helps. You have yourself a good evening
