My cub 129 threw the pto belt off and it looked pretty beat up so I installed a new belt. It was an OEM belt. At first I could not get the pto to engage, then I keep playing with the turnbuckle and got it to engage.
Off I went mowing and other yard work, all of a sudden I smell smoke and and the next thing you know my pto belt which was disengaged at the time burned up.
So I read up on adjusting the turnbuckle and went out and got a new belt but now I cannot get the pto to engage.
I can reach down and turn the pulley which turns the deck, but when I engage the pto with its lever, nothing happens.
If I open the turn buckle too much the pto brake disc drops out, so I went over everything again and I found that the PTO brake disc is supposed to have a wave washer and snap ring. Both of these are missing. Would that cause the PTO not to engage?
