I am posting this on behalf of my son.
He owns a 17.5 HP Huskee lawn tractor. In order to replace a belt, he
had to remove the deck. To do that, you have to remove a spring that
attaches to the back of the tractor near the transmission. All that
What he is wondering is if anyone knows an easy way to get the spring
reattached. He hasn't tried it yet but thinks, and I agree, that it
will be a very difficult task.
Has anyone done this and does anyone have a trick they can share for
Also, the reason he had to replace the belt is because it wore
through. It seems to be hitting something wrongly. Any ideas about
that? It has done that since he bought it new.
