There are a few different Toro lawn mower models. Rear wheel drive models have a drive belt that runs to the rear of the machine. Front wheel drive models have a drive belt that`s connected to the front of the mower.
Yes, with a few tools. Use a long-handled socket wrench to loosen the tensioner. This will allow you to remove the old belt. Wind the new belt correctly through each of the parts that run on the serpentine belt.
Where can I find a belt routing diagram for my engine? A: Commonly a belt routing diagram sticker is on the underside of the hood or in the engine compartment. If there is no diagram, make a sketch of the belt and pulleys before removing the belt. This will help you re-route the new belt correctly.
A: Your mower has two belts. Both play a role in making the blades turn. The “Deck Belt” goes around the pulleys right above the blades on the deck and then to a double pulley. The “Drive Belt” on your mower goes from the transmission, around an Idler pulley then over to the double pulley I mentioned before.
To replace the output belt also known as a toothed belt or timed belt, we need to remove the deck from the mower. It`s not difficult to do, and the whole job shouldn`t take more than an hour.

I have trouble starting a toro walk behind mower
All, I thought my carb was shot, so I replaced it. Still, start but no run (and had to use starting fluid). THEN!!! I noticed the spring to the “rev limiter” (just below and towards rear of carb) was not “tight”.

I have a toro gts 6.5hp model 20017. The enginer is overreving a lot. I had changed the carburetor and believe i put the linkages correctly, however i noticed the governor arm is rotated slightly right because the governor link appears to be too long for the arm to be vertical.
