Ok got the new drive belt on but now the tractor will take off even when the clutch pedal is down. When engaged the idler I think it is called, puts the belt in contact with a flat metal piece that the belt rides on when engaged. To me it seems to be too much pressure against this piece. Hope this makes sense, Don't know how else to describe it. Thanks, Tim

Is it possible you got the wrong size belt?

Tim, Is the belt a OEM belt or from Tractor supply co.. If it's from TSC or similar parts house, you may have the wrong belt. You do have it routed correctly.

This is where some pics would be really helpful. I'm not picturing the flat piece that you're talking about. If you're having trouble posting pics, let us know and we'll try to help.

I got the belt from a Toro dealer. I will try to get pics taken and posted. Since the old belt broke I had to figure out the routing. I do not see any other way to route. If anyone has pictures of the proper routing please post.

The belt routing looks to be correct to me. The rub marks on the actuator rod are "normal", but the belt only rubs there when there is slack in it. The flat metal is designed to stop the belt when the clutch pedal is depressed. The keeper bracket on the pulley shaft pinches the belt between itself and that flat piece to stop the belt from turning so you don't grind the gears when you shift. The only thing that I can think of is that the keeper bracket may be turned slightly from it's normal position. Did you have the pulley off or loose when putting the new belt on?

You're not trying to run the machine with the belt guard off, are you? The belt guard must be installed so that the tang (tab) on the front of the belt cover stops the belt from turning when the Clutch/Brake Pedal is depressed, in conjunction with the stop block and pulley keeper.

I did loosen the pulley when putting on the belt. I did tighten it back up.
