How to I adjust the belt to tighten it
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

I am back with you. I do apologize for the delay. Are you using a John Deere belt, or an aftermarket belt?

Bought it at the Deere store I bought my mower from in the 90's

Thank for your reply. I am not aware of a way to adjust your belt. As you depress your brake/clutch pedal and fully release it, check to see if your belt is loosening, and tightening. Do you have your deck off?
