Fixing the symptoms is draining your pockets and giving you headaches. So let’s fix the problem with your Murray riding mower belt.

Check the pulley guard for damage. This is important the pulley guards help keep the lawn mower belt on the pulley. The pulley guard is what makes getting the lawn mower belt on a pain. But an essential part that keeps the belt on the lawn mower pulleys.

Note: If the problem is still an issues replace the pulleys. You will save yourself time and money by replacing the lawn mower pulleys.

      Hi There,

      I recently bought a Murray 42587x50, second-hand. Within a couple of days the drive belt broke while mowing a path through thick bush. I cant find a diagram for this model indicating the belt route. looking at several diagrams online it seems that the belt fitted was incorrect and the 2 pullies at the rear near the trans. have been reversed some how with the V pully on the right looking from the front to the back. Are you able to help with a diagram to clarify this even if its for a different model but with the same arrangement.

      My thanks in advance

      I have a Murray model 465600x8a. Would you be able to send diagram of how the drive belt and mower belts are routed? Also, I have read my manual on how to remove the housing and replace all belts but seems very confusing. Do you think this is something I can do myself if I have never done it? Thank you, mstjohn21300@yahoo.com

      Hi I am not real clear on what your trying to do but I can tell you this if your engine bolts up to transmission you should have no trouble. Is the transmission 5 speed?

      I have a murry tractor with a brigs& straton engine the thing is I want to move it to another tractor with a 5speed manuel transmission. Since the transmissions are belt driven can you conferm that this will work as long as the new engine fits on the frame.

      thank you
