Help! Need tips for changing belt on Murray Select Riding Mower
Have not been on the forums in awhile. Hope this is the correct forum. My dad passed away and I inherited his Murray Select Riding Mower. Model 42591x8B. It was bought in 1999.Additional information:It is a AutomaticDrive Widebody LT. 42"/17HP.
I'm not mechanically inclined.The belt is very brittle and ready for replacement. Reading the manual it says to remove the mower housing and then it gives instructions to replace belt. What is the housing? Looking at the manual it looks like the housing could be the whole part of the body under the seat. I can't imagine that they would design it that difficult to just change the belt. I googled everywhere including utube for video or better instructions. Saw some other brands on utube that were easy to change but of course they were not a Murray. If you show me a link or some better instructions then this manual I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance. Joan
The Murray has run great for 10 years. I only put less then 10 hours on it a year.
