Bob Williams I am having a difficult time changing the deck belt on a 42" deck for a 19.5HP Craftman. I bought a new one, but am hesitant to change. Previous one came off belt wheel and began to smoke. It was frayed and didn't move smoothly.
There is a template on the deck as to the feeding pattern, but I would like some direction.

Noah I have a Craftsman LT 1000 Model No.
It has an automatic transmission and when I engage it the wheels turn when the tractor is lifted, but when it is on the ground there is not enough force generated to move the tractor; Also the drive belt does not move too when the drive is engaged (or reverse)
I flipped the tractor over at one point to observe under the deck during a previous accident with my wife, in which she broke the aluminum housing mandrel needed to be fixed. Everything else works fine: brakes; mower blades can engage; etc.
Can anyone give me any advice as to how I should troubleshoot this problem?
Thank you.

Noah One more thing: the brake does stop the wheels from turning eventually when the tractor is raised on jack.

Darwin Moen I have a craftsman DVT4000 Lawn tractor, I just put in a new battery and it still will not keep a charge. Once I get it running, now the Power Take off will stop during cutting. I fugured I'm not creating enough electrical power to run it? once the tractor stops, it needs to be jumped to run again. Do these tractors have a altenator? Where is it located.

Herman. Hering Obviously they have an alternator. It could be defect. The Voltage Regulator could be defect as well. And the battery could discharge by itself because there is still a consumer connected to it after the engine has been stopped.
