1. Position the mower to change the lawn mower belt. Place the mower on a flat, level surface and set the parking brake to keep the mower from rolling while you're working.
2. Check the engine temperature before replacing the lawn mower belt. If the engine is hot, allow the exhaust system to cool down before attempting any maintenance.
3. Detach the spark plug wire. Open the hood and remove the spark plug wire(s). Ground the spark plug wire (s) against the engine to prevent it from starting during lawn mower maintenance.
4. Remove the cutting deck and battery. Remove the cutting deck. Instructions for removing the cutting deck can be found in your Operator's Manual in the "Service" section.
5. Loosen the transaxle pulley. Look down through where the battery was located. You will see a large transaxle pulley. Loosen the large nut holding the pulley to the input shaft using a 7/16" socket.
6. Relieve tension on the upper drive belt. Disconnect the spring from the anchor bolt on the left side of the tractor using a spring puller or a small piece of rope.
7. Remove the upper drive belt and lawn mower belt guide. Maneuver the upper (rear) belt from the transaxle pulley and remove the belt from the mower.
8. Take the belt off the variable speed pulley. Lift the middle sheave slightly so the lawn mower belt will clear the belt guide, and slip the belt off of the variable speed pulley.
9. Remove the belt keeper. Remove the belt keeper that surrounds the engine pulley using a 1/2" wrench.
10. Remove the bolt securing the crankshaft pulley. Remove the bolt securing the crankshaft pulley using a 5/8" socket. Note: The use of an air impact gun is recommended for removal purposes.
