I got the deck, done and installed. All new bearings and seals. 1 new belt. It is loud not like bad loud, it just has a different noise I have seen before. I am thinking it's because it's timed. Pics as evidence I did it. The bad thing is as I was hooking up the drive shaft it started to rain. No grass cutting for the next few days because of rain.

The sun was out, I have to say, the 54" deck is massive but it is one good cut. Probably the best cut out of all the tractors I have had.

Where did you find the deck belt for the 54" deck and what are the cross reference numbers I need 1 the belt I do have says 62-0925 Snapper 7019578 I took the covers off and the spindles seem to be in good shape but what I believe are the belt tensioners look rusty Were yours rusty?

If by belt tensioners you mean the springs, partstree had them last time I needed some.  For the belts, I think they are an 8M series.  I counted teeth and found the length and ordered from vbelt supply.

Gates belt #6384. For the tensioner I just pb blasted the one and hit it with some heat and I was good to go..

I am having troubles selling this one. Started at 1,600 and now at 1,200. I guess if it doesn't sell I will be forced to part her out.

Dragging this up. Sold the tractor a while ago. Got contacted today that they want Me to buy the tractor back. They only put 1.6 hrs on it. Some how a carb screw came loose and stuck a valve. They took it to a mechanic who fixed it. Got it home and it had no power and the exhuast would back fire when turned off. Mechanic said great compression and tore it all apart. Told them it's not worth fixing and he doesn't know what wrong.

I am getting back an engine in a box and misc parts. Time to restore this and keep it for my personal collection

The engine is out and in a box. I am thinking I might send 2 onan b48m's to some one to build me a proven good motor. They can keep all the extra parts, and I will pay for labor and new parts.

They say Boomer is a great nationwide known Onan mechanic but I wouldn't give away any of the extra parts If the tractor ran when it left you and only ran for a short time and the screw stuck the valve open then Why did this so called mechanic tear it all the way down There are manuals on the Onan b48m and that's what I did just follow step by step and make a few phone calls to the masters like Boomer and you will have a freshly rebuilt engine at half the cost Just take your time
