GT5000 Motion Drive Schematic/Belt
Model 917-276020 Drive Belt - AYP 161597
I didn't pay attention when removing the drive belt because of neck aliment and also knew the manual and left foot rest had schematics. Well discovered later when attempting to install new belt that my tractor is set-up differently than the schematics.
The schematics reveal the V-Idler next to Engine pulley, Clutching Idler and Clutching Flat Idler near Trans axle is located on LEFT side of tractor but my tractor is set-up with all the aforementioned on RIGHT side.
I assume the routing of belt will be the same just opposite of schematics?
The supply house I purchased the belt didn't have the exact length 1/2" 82 & 3/4" replacement. But we measured the old one and it was exactly 82" so we thought if 82" came off 82" would go back WRONG. I should have went with 83" But I think I will opt for Exact OEM replacement (Stens # 265070) belt at Lowes.
The mower belts (AYP180808) 5/8" X 89" and 5/8" X
90" (AYP174368) weren't hard to find correct replacements.
