2000 17 hp .. 42 inch riding mower... drive belt will not stay on?
drive belt keeps coming off????????????????????/
Is this a good question?
@eddard ,Jobob , Since I do not know your exact model #, I will post some what generic answer to your issue. If the belt is the correct size and in good condition(not stretched or worn thin), the problem will be the belt retainers bent/missing/ or adjusted too far from the pulleys allowing belt to fall off. Check that the rear end has not slid ahead(broken mount) allowing belt to be excessively loose, check for badly worn pulleys and that the belt tensioner is working correctly(if equipped), belt guides/retainer/guard to far from pulley's or missing is the usual problem. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
