OK, I know that most of the rigs here on the forum are GT, not LT and they are mostly older rebuilds. However, I could use some help with my anytime use 2007 JD X320. It has a 48" mower deck and that is where my problem is occurring. I had an idler pulley lock up and it smoked the belt. Got a new pulley and a new belt and it keeps jumping track. Pulled the whole deck off and checked all of the blade hubs and idlers with the belt off and they feel good. When the PTO switch is turned on, it instantly jumps an idler pulley. The belt is a brand new Gates and feels plenty tight when pulling on the tension idler when installing. Could the PTO cause some type of jump or slippage to make it jump track? The pulley that it keeps jumping track on, I even moved the belt guide in as close as I could and it still managed to squeeze through it. Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.
