    Default Belt help please - sears 18hp mower unit

    Hi Everyone,
    I've a broken secondary drive belt on my rear discharge 44 inch mower deck. Sears has been no help in replacing it.

    I'd really like to get it working again. If anyone can offer suggestions it would be much appreciated.

    Please see the pictures at my link below.

    Try taking your old belt to a NAPA store and see if they can match it up with something they have.

    Thanks for the advice Housten, I will do exactly as you suggest.

    do you have any thoughts on which company manufactured the older sears garden tractors? I'm thinking that it was MTD? And, I wonder if they also made the mower units?

    Have a great day,

    Tarpon

    Will that deck require timing to prevent the blades from hitting each other?

    Yup, the belt and cogs are toothed so I can set one blade at a right-angle to the other.
