Did it actually break or just come off?

There are no pieces in there. I am pretty sure it just came off.
Ok let me see what I can find to help you out.

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.


Is this the belt you are replacing.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It looks like the smaller one. The tractor will not move forward or reference and the belt was just laying like it had come off the pully. It will start, but will not engage.

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.




Ok this is the set up correct the red arrow is the adjuster move the adjuster and you should be able to get the belt on.There are some issues with the transmissions on these tractors also the belts always loose.Its till under warranty so if the belt does not stay on you need to have it fixed at the dealer.


Let me know if this helped.

Hi there,


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.
