*

The blade belt disintegrated on my 345"s 48" deck while mowing and left me little to go by on how it should be routed. I learned when the 185 crapped the hydrostatic belt that there can be many ways to route a belt but only one is the correct way so I should ask if I can"t find a definite answer on the web. I did check the web and there are quite a number of 48" decks out there and the only photo I could find like mine

was tiny and didn"t enlarge well.I think the routing in the photo is correct, can someone please check my work? Serial number of the deck isM0048DD085889 (second D is questionable). Thanks!

The routing looks correct, but the belt should be tight and wrapped around the lower center sheave.View attachment 2468530
Thanks! I don"t have the tensioning rod engaged in the top of the deck yet so the belt is loose. I didn"t want to put it back under the tractor and reinstall the engine to deck drive belt unless I had this one routed right. The tensioning rod looks like it will be a bear with the new belt installed.

It should be fine. You may have to pull the tension lever the wrong way to get the engine belt onSent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
okay, a little more help please. If I position the deck in place with the engine to deck drive belt on, pulling the tensioner rod to engage it in the deck bracket actually loosens the engine belt to the point that it is too loose and the spring for the idler is stretched all of the way across the deck. Leaving the tension rod alone allows belt belt tension and idler spring to be what I"ll call normal.A few things to note - I installed new idler pulleys and took the fixed double pulley assembly at the back of the deck apart to get the belt on. There are small locators on the tensioner rod bracket to make sure it locates properly to the double pulley bracket and I"ve made sure that is all lined back up properly, it looks like it can really go only one way for the rod to reach the deck. Also note that the deck was not fully engaged in the front loop by the axle but engaging it would have pulled the deck further forward and made the situation worse. the rear brackets were aligned so the deck was located side to side.Below are photos of the position of the rod with the belts properly tensioned. I"ve jacked something up but I can"t figure what it is.It doesn"t help when you take something apart on a saturday, come down with what was thought to be covid that scares the crap out of you, and try to put it back together afterwards
