You need to get underneath the mower.Look in the front on the bottom of the engine.You will see the engine pulley.On the side of the pulley you will see a bracket that keeps the belt from falling off the pulley.It is help on by two bolts.Take the bracket off.Now you will be able to take the belt off.
Reinstall the new belt and replace the bracket.

How do I get the lever to shift to lift the mower so that I can replace the belt? 19hp, 42", year unknown craftsman turbo


If it is the drive belt do the following place your mower on a level surface set parking brake, remove mower deck, remove belt from stationary idler and clutch idler, pull belt slack towards the rear of tractor , then remove belt upwards from transaxle pulley by deflecting the belt keepers, then pull the belt towards the front of mower and remove downwards from engine pulley Install new belt in reverse procedure

What size hydro drive belt can I use to replace the craftsman belt, part# 140218??


The Craftsman drive belt #140218 is a 1/2" by 84.3" belt with an aramid fiber wrap.

Since this belt is contacted on both sides (inside and outside) as it runs the pattern on your mower, it must be replaced with another belt of exact size and construction. If you were to use an 84" belt, then the tension pulley would not have enough slack to disengage the transmission. Likewise, an 85" belt would have too much slack and cause the trans to slip.

The original belt is available through www.searspartsdirect.com for about $25 plus shipping. Check with your local lawnmower repair shop, they probably stock this belt and will be competitive in price.

Good luck!

The deck belt keeps falling off of my Troy-Bilt 14AT809H766 Horse riding lawn mower. Why? How do I fix it?


Either the belt is stretched out and needs to be replaced or there is an idler/tensioner pulley that may be weak and not putting enough pressure on the belt.

Drive belt keep falling off


you have belt guides near your pulleys that helps to keep the belt on during no engagement
you need to check to see if they are missing or bent and adjust as close to the pulley and belt as possible without interfereing with the belt and pulleys while engaged.IE: no rubbing against the pulley or belt while engaged or moving.
