all 3 drive belt idler pulleys and 1 deck idler pulley are going bad.PTO idler pulley locked up momentary and tossed the deck belt and took a chunk out of it.
Got me a decent cheap Troy Bilt 22/46 mower with a replacement engine in it and a good quiet Hydro-Gear 918-0319 transaxle in it but I think it might of been in a flood at some point.I changed the oil in the rear and it had a bit of water in it.Didn't hurt the rear though.It goes up the steep hill behind the house fine and it doesn't wine.
Tractor is a 2005 with a 2009 Briggs vanguard twin replacement engine.Engine runs awesome and transaxle is perfect and the 3 blade 46" deck is Mint.
But all the idler pulleys need replaced.I replaced 2 with a couple of used ones I had in the shed but there not going to last very long.I priced a belt and 4 pulleys and it's going to be around $75 for everything.
I don't mind putting that much into it.It's a nice solid tractor for a MTD built Troy Bilt and it has foot pedal operated hydro.I'm back to push mowing till I get the money to fix it.
Nope don't have any other junk laying around yet.It's still early in the year though lol.I don't keep much here.
