Exact size auger belt fits Craftsman snowblower 37X120MA, 581264MA 1/2″ X 35. 6″
When the auger looses some drive, or slips under load, an adjustment can be made to tighten the auger drive belt. The auger engaging cable has a spring on the bottom end. Remove the belt cover to expose this spring. Perform this adjustment by moving the spring up a notch.

Need a diagram for craftsman 44″ riding mower drive belt. Mine threw belt and cannot locate original manual.
If you can find the model number of your mower, you should be able to find your manual here. I hope this helps.http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action
Drive belt Have replace drive belt but mower still has no forward movement. Mower is only 2 years old but its already had to have another drive belt installed by the dealer last year. wanted to do it myself but when i install belt theres hardly any tension so mower doesnt move. Checked and rechecked the diagram and is installed correctly. Cant find a tensioner adjustment if it has one.
I don’t have an answer for you, but Do you have a diagram of the Drive Belt?
Need to replace drive belt.Never replaced. 42′ Craftsman riding lawn mower. How difficult is this. How do you access rear drive pully
Take a look at how the belt is installed. Then you will have to remove the mower deck and belt from the pulley on the engine. There is probably something by the engine pulley that you will have to remove so the belt will come off. It might be a shoulder bold or a rod with a bolt holding it on. Same with the rear pulley. Then you just have to put the belt on one pulley and watch your fingers so you don’t pinch them and turn the other pulley and the belt should go on. reinstall any bolts you removed and install the deck.
The belt that comes from the engine to mower deck keeps breaking. I’ve owned the mower for years and I have to buy atleast 12 belts per year. The problen is really bad now. A belt per cutting. I’ve raised the deck, tightened and loosened the tention, sharpened blades, changed to B v-bets to A, nothing seems to work. Changing the sise to a smaller width helped for a while. I had a service man come out my first month. He said the mower is fine. Claimed cutting to deep has to be the problem and left. I used a Ford 12 hp mower since high school 25 years ago……….no problems with it. Thought I should buy a new one because the old one looked rusty…. big mistake buying Craftsman.
I own a Craftsman rider, DTY 4000, 25 HP Kohler, 48″ cut, 137 Hrs. It eats a belt about every mowing or two. Did all the stuff you did. Good luck from Sears. Had cousin who is owns a lawn & garden repair business look at it today. Says the prob. is this – The drive belt pulley (elec clutch) has too a narrow “V” and the angle of wear between it and the deck when the deck is in the lowered (mowing) position is too severe. If you notice with the deck in the fully raised position the pulleys line up perfectly. Then drop your deck and see how tightly bent the belt is downward and it makes sense as to why(my) belt would first roll over then break in a few minutes. The elec clutch pulley is sold as one unit PT No. 179334 $250.00, but I’m sure it would come with the same narrow V pulley. Waiting for word from my cousin. My last Sears Mower. Cannot even sell it in good faith.
My MTD 10hp auger will not turn. I adjusted the auger cable by tightening the bolt on the handle. I disconnected the spark plug and checked the shear pins on both sides of the auger. They are both still there. The snow thrower worked fine when I last used it in
April of 2010. The snow thrower starts, and goes in all gears in forward and reverse. Is there a separate belt to turn the augers?
Yes there are 2 belts one for the drive and one for the auger. If you remove the cover on top that is located between the engine and the auger housing you can check the belts. The auger belt has come off the pulley or is broken. Hope this helps you out. Best regards and good luck.
The gears are very hard to shift
You need to put dope in trans and check gear shifter to see if it is loode if not check your drive belt
What would cause my craftsman lt 1000 to chew up ground drive belt?
A bad pulley – bent- binding bearing-loose belt guides
